Well, at least someone's made out like a bandit in the closing of San Diego's Saks Fifth Avenue—the folks over at Fashion Makes Me Horny looted/bought/we're not sure how they got the store's 3.5-foot tall signage.
Are they iconic, a collector’s item, future planters, part of an art project or simply garbage? Should I post them on the side of my house as a joke? At any rate, they’ll be part of my home decor for a long, long time as an ode to one of the world’s best department stores.Think it was an impulse buy?
