The Dollar Store, 2009

At The Dollar Store: Shopping at the dollar store is a reality for many Americans, and not by choice. Being a frequent shopper myself, I have often wondered why some of the items are for sale. What purpose do the have? What appeals to the shopper about the figurines? Will they end up as waste in a dump somewhere? I have explored a few stores in the area, and found the statuettes to be a “creepy sorta cute.”
