1. Oh You Kid!

    No, I do not kid.

    The 99¢ Only store put Valentine’s Day merchandise out in some of their southern California stores last week!

    Note the snowflakes and Santa’s hats on the right of the endcap [industry term]. And in the background is an entire display of candy canes. Because, eh, how do I put this delicately?  Christmas is still weeks away!

    Is this the most extreme example of Valentine’s Day Creep ever?

    No.

    Apparently, I am the most extreme example of Valentine’s Day Creep ever, since I was politely and tactfully advised by a store manager – who caught me excitedly snapping shots of the above display – that I am not allowed to take photos of their merchandise.

    I guess he thought I was one of them freaky conversation heart enthusiasts. Hubba hubba!
