Oscar the Grouch is a guy who knows how to appreciate trash. Take a different point of view of the stuff you normally consider junk and you can often solve a visual merchandising dilemma – no joke! For re-purposing and found-object inspiration take a simple trip to
• Yard sales
• Estate sales
• Your own basement
Keep your eyes open for simple, everyday items that are capable of adding visual interest when used in creative and relevant ways.
