Sign #1

Bum sign

Cost: $3
Location: Half-block off Broadway, on Mercer

$3 was my initial offer, expecting it to be the starting point for bargaining. Instead, I got a cheerful response of, “Sure, I can always make another!” I commented on the quality of the sign, because it isn’t your standard flimsy cardboard. Its a heavier, almost particle-board type material. The woman replied that this was “the good stuff” and it doesn’t blow over in the wind. I thanked her and as I was walking away she shouted, “Good luck!”
