a couple of beauties from the mean streets of Rhinebeck, NY

Loyal reader Johnny H. sends in this wonderfully executed free sign from the house across his street and claims that he was not tempted by the artificial Christmas tree (in a box!!). Nonetheless, we're sending a carton of artificial Christmas tree ornaments our to J.H. as our little way of saying "thanks!"




Also from Rhinebeck. A really good sign and a pretty nice lamp. (Took both)

That shit i said before?


About the free sign season kicking into high gear? Bullshit. Memorial Day weekend is when it really kicks into high gear. I only got about half of them and left the others right where they were.

Free wishes of good luck picking it up!!

Loyal reader Rick L didn't even send in this picture, we swiped it off of his Facebook page. Therefore we will not be sending him a carton of cracker jacks as our little way of saying thanks.

Claire. Oh, Claire

Loyal reader of the year Clair M. sent these in and, as our little way of saying "thanks", we're sending her this paraphrase from Shakespeare. Some play or something. Who the hell knows.
"Beggar that I am, I am even poor in thanks."

Claire wins

Been running a secret contest here for the last few years: which loyal reader would send in the most free pics and it turns out that loyal reader Claire M. wins, having sent in almost 3 trillion free pics over the last 3 years. That's 400 million pics every day for a long time. And that's why we're sending out a brand new Hewlett-Packard graphing calculator to Claire M. as our little way of saying "thanks!"


Who knows where

Loyal reader Adah H. sends this in from who knows where. Which is hard to find. A brand spanking new, top of the line solar operated GPS Swiss army knife goes out to Adah as our little way of saying "thanks!"

San Anselmo, California!!

Loyal reader Molly N. sends in this lovely, artsy pic from all the way out in San Anselmo, CA!!! A carton of Scotch brand blue tape goes out to Molly as our little way of saying "thanks!"




Knee high by the 4th

Bags of corn, artfully arranged with free-ish signs, sent in by loyal reader and inveterate aficionado of the off-kilter, Claire M. A stick of butter and a cylinder of salt goes out to Claire as our little way of saying "thanks!" Seriously? Why do they put that shit in cylinders?
