Tray-Tastic Clearance Shopping

Earlier this week I showed you some art that was hung up a tad last-minute…

I’m kinda in love with it.  A little weirdly now.   …and I kinda wish I had this print in a larger, wall-sized version.  HOW COOL would wallpaper like this be?  …but alas, apartments aren’t too wall-paper-friendly.  (And the removable kind isn’t too wallet-friendly.)  Hmm.

So what sweet scores have you made in your shopping travels lately?
