99 cents only

loyal readers of this blog might recognize the style of photo from this one posted way back in january. taken on the same day in the same plaza, it's really no coincidence.

99 cents only stores are famous for their affordable items and the incredible amount of stores that dot the southwest, but did you also know that the most expensive photograph ever sold was taken in one of their stores? or that there is a gourmet cookbook being marketed using only items found in this store?

I do wish that the commentary on articles that represent "the most ever paid for by a living artist....." would realize the artist isn't walking away with the money. It's the collector that sells the piece at auction who walks away with the dough. This is what they are talking about when they speak of investing in art.
