The 99% Shop for 99 Cents

“The antithesis of Saks.”

“A place where prices relax.”

“Beer for less than three quarters?

Smash your coin jars you hoarders!”

“Party supplies worth your while.”

“Tourist stuff near the front aisle.”

“They sell TP by the roll?”

“Who buys a two inch fish bowl?”

“Rough riders look a bit rough.”

“Ah, here’s the good kitchen stuff.

Mixing spoons and pots and pans,

Made by enslaved foreign hands?”

“A bit of everything, cheap!”

“Conflict ‘round this store runs deep.”

“The 99%’s store!

A place Santa Barbara snobs abhor.”
