Elmo says check out that mattress!

Is that a Tickle-me Elmo hanging on the line?

Elmo says there's nothing lonelier than a used mattress.

A case of cookies goes out to Kimmie C. for sending in the Elmo pic and a carton of Newports for S.O'C. for the swell snap of the mattress and box spring. Newport. Alive with pleasure.

All-star reader and showy-offy app ho P.F.D.B. sends in this 4-banger of pics. Presumably all of the stuff in all of them is free, though it appears that only one shutter click (if his fancy pants iPhone even has a shutter click sound effect) actually captured a free sign.

A quarter bushel of Cape Cod's best quahogs goes out to reader P.F.D.B. for his 25% success.

Summertime and the living is free

A tiny toy table sent in by lovely loyal reader S.O'C. ...
...this golden doorway to unlimited devotion was snapped by hall of famer Kim C ...
...hyper-fab reader Claire M. sent this in all the way from Minneapolis...
...sometime contributor Andrea M. snapped this in Fire Island...
...this one was found floating around the archives....
...winner of the best-looking reader contest, Daisy M. snapped this one in Woodstock...
...another one found floating around the archive...

...and one more sent in from Woodstock, N.Y.

A case of Badger All-Natura Unscented Face and Body Sunscreen SPF 30 goes out to all our esteemed summer contributors. Now I'm off to the beach for a free sunset.

More free!!

Not surprisingly, there are other people out there on cyberland who dig the same stuff I do. Here's a link to Sam Pratt's lovely collection of free signs: Enjoy!


New fan of the free signs blog sends in swell snap of an old fan.

But the real story is the type on that sign. Sure they ran out of space, but check out those "e"s. Wow. And is that a little serif sneaking in at the bottom of the "r"? I think it is. Serifs are rare-ifs on homemade free signs.

Special thanks to A-grrr for sending it in. A case of cucumber pulp goes out to her as our little way of saying "thanks".

Ha! Just like I told'ja. Take the picture, leave the sign.

One more from the topic sentence collections. This one via Woodstock Patch from Ojai, CA. A case of 2007 William Selyem Pinot Noir goes out to Patch as our little way of saying "thanks" for thinking of us.

Beauty and the beast.

From a couple of my favorite peeps come a coupla totally different pics. A-Grrr sends in the sparkly Christmas Tweety confection above and A-Traum sends in the scorched earth snap below. A case of vintage port to A-Grrr and a tin of Copenhagen to A-Traum as our little way of saying "thanks" for contributing.
