Thursday Challenge—"cheap"

Saw these for sale at a midweek street
 near where I work in midtown Manhattan.
I think they definitely fit the category.

  1. Certainly bright colors and interesting patterns in your photo. If these were cheap they must have been made of plastic.

  2. Cheap, yes. Why, contrary to popular belief, in 1626 you couldn’t even buy the entire island of Manhattan with those trinkets.

    Taken For Granted’s comment above made me realize how much like paisley your found design is. I wouldn’t be surprised if your image were photoshopped by someone into a necktie or scarf. Indian restaurant wall hanging?

    I was also thinking that it would be less than pleasant to be searching through those beads and find this well-camouflaged item in one’s hand. A couple of those look quite a bit like coral snakes.

  3. Perhaps cheap, but certainly colourful.


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
