Being more a purpose-driven than recreational shopper, I don’t get out that much in the chain retail world. However, on a recent excursion, this item stopped me in my tracks.

Product: Decorative Wine Corks
Store: Bed, Bath, and Beyond
Website description: A stylish way to re-use discarded wine toppers, these assorted corks are great for filling tabletop vases or bowls to enhance their decorative appeal.

Discarded wine toppers? Do you mean corks? So if you love wine (ahem, as I do) enough to want to decorate with wine corks, would you not have the corks from drinking the wine? And if you don’t enjoy wine, why would you want to decorate with wine corks? I guess this product is for an emergency wine cork situation… you need to decorate FAST and have just recycled your corks at Whole Foods…
