As the silly season quickly approaches we in the Thrift Shop biz have our version of Black Friday. At our shop this is the biggest fundraising day for us. Since we are part of a non-profit it is especially helpful to us and our mission. I take pictures of the setup, and of the big sales day, to help us promote it for next year and hopefully drive up donations of goods to the shop….also it help us remember how we set it up since we are brain-dead by the end of the day. One of the items that are donated I enjoy is the snow globes. It harkens back to my youth I guess but none the less I find them to be a simple pleasure and one that is hard to photograph. Here is a bear in a Santa suit inside the globe.
