NOTES FROM THE BANNER BARON ON REALITY TV!
Clearly, my taste in TV programs is a little different from the folks who vote on the Emmy’s. No love for the Robertson family of Duck Dynasty in the Outstanding Reality Program category? Not even a nomination? I’m crazy for those bearded, camo-wearing country folk and I think this was a MAJOR snub. I’m also a big fan of American Pickers and Antiques Roadshow, too, which are sort of the “before and after” bookends of reality TV. Antiques Roadshow points out the treasure among your trash and American Pickers buys those collectibles from you. This week’s special comes straight from the lessons I’ve learned from American Pickers. When a seller doesn’t like the price they offer, the “pickers” try to “bundle” it with another item to give more and get more. So this week, I’m bundling a packaged deal of ten, 18″ X 24″ Coroplast yard signs WITH regular H stakes for just $85. That’s a savings of over $20 which is more than 20% off! As an added bonus, I’m running this deal through the end of September. And there’s a great deal on canvas prints as well. More stuff, less money, and more time to buy.
It’s the way of the picker. And the Duck Commander. And the Banner Baron.
