BEAUTY SCHOOL DROPOUTS

Beauty school dropouts? You could call them that. We call them surplus with a new purpose, which probably involves Halloween, starting your own cosmetics how-to Youtube channel or guaranteeing yourself a seat on the bus. From what we've seen so far, some have eyes and some don't, and we can't decide which is more disturbing, but all have long dark-brown or black hair. Did we mention these are surplus? You get what you get without getting upset.

Pillows For Pinheads

OK, ok--we don’t mean it. Some of our best friends have little heads. These are mini-pillows for naps at your desk, or on airplanes, or wherever. They’re very soft and gooshy, with plush covers and zippers so you can remove the polyester bag of bead stuffing and wash the outside if you drool on it. (Don’t wash the stuffing or the gooshiness will be gone.) Measure just 9" long x 4" dia and we’ll pick a pair from our selection of pink, purple, baby blue or lime green.

Talking Bandages

We feel sorry for those flesh-colored bandages that are just trying to hide. Stand up and be healed with bandages that make a statement! Say Oink with this box of (15) sterile photo reproductions of a raw bacon slice, plus a bonus plastic pig in every tin. Or stick one of (15) 3” x 1” latex-free bandages with a creepy picture of a leech on your arm and tell people “This is not a leech” in an honor of Rene Magritte's “This is not a pipe” painting. Give them a little lesson in the treachery of images. Also comes in a tin with a free prize.

Sock It To You

It’s an AS&S debut--socks with fun built right in. We’d say they’re wacky, but we hate saying wacky. These are all cotton/poly/nylon/spandex blends, which is a lot of blending right there, medium mens' at 18" long, but really, they’d pretty much fit most feet, and they’re gender-indifferent. You pick the blue/red/yellow with a rubber chicken on the side; the two-tone green with pickles rampant; the four-tone with Bigfoot; the black and blue with Tesla coils; or the green/black with a Plague Doctor.

You Can’t Slam This Screen Door

But it will still keep the flying critters out of your kitchen. This hanging screen is made of a plastic fabric mesh and will fit doorways up to 36” x 80”, but works best in slightly narrower ones to allow some side overlap. Works great on campers, RVs, trailers and the like where you really need to let air flow or buy four and build a giant insect cage that can cover a small tree. Installs with adhesive hook-and-loop tabs and has a weighted bottom, so it won’t flap in the wind. Portable, handy and ready for summer. Just like you.

And easy to store. One of the better pick-up tools we've seen. Folds to just over 16" to store, but locks open at 30" with spring steel arms on an aluminum frame. It has soft, suction-cup-shaped grabbers and big, locking pistol grip. Pretty good gripping capacity too-maybe to 10 lbs or so. Get one for Mom, because at her age she can't reach the things she used to. And then get another one for yourself, because you'll be Mom's age before you know it.
