Marketing

I'm seeing commercials on TV for the Tuesday Morning store. They have that actress's voice-overs showing a product and saying that was on sale last week and there aren't anymore. You missed it, don't miss this week's product. And so far, I haven't wanted anything she shows. I'm clearly not their demographic.

I was at the Giant today getting groceries and kleenex, and above the house brand I buy were Puffs with lenticular display panels on the sides. They were mostly in holiday themes -- a kid dressed for snow who did jumping jacks when you moved it, an elf that waved, but one was a lava lamp with moving bubbles. Very cute and I almost bought one just for the panel. I could bead around it.
