Sweater #93

Terri placed sweaters #93  at a store selling comfortable wares for the home.  With 1 in 7 homeowners going into foreclosures this past year, it seems that the juxtaposition of these objects in a store primarily serving home comfort needs is quite  apropos.  Many homeowners in Phoenix, AZ who are selling homes in distressed situations are leaving behind their possessions instead of moving or storing these items.  Living in an apartment complex is extremely revealing as well since most of the goods found in stores such as this seem to end up in the dumpster when tenants depart. The site of these over-flowing dumpsters really point out the heavily driven consumer culture we live in today where many items are bought with the intention of disposing at a later date.
