Thrift Store, Coolidge, AZ

There was no price on it, but all the other art was about $6 so I asked:

“How much?” 

“Don’t know, I’ll call the owner”

“Ok. I’ll wander around and see if find anything else”

So I did. Then came back to the counter to find a piece of blue painters tape on the picture with $40 written on it with a Sharpie.

“Oh” say I “That’s more than I was thinking. Everything else in here seems to be about $6”

“Ok” says the guy. “How about $5?”

So I bought it.

Can’t blame the guy for trying, I guess. And I would have paid him $6
