I love the idea of coin banks. I’ve bought them for friends as gifts and love to see them filling the shelves online and inside storefront retailers everywhere. On many occasion, I fill my chipped and sticker covered Double Decker bus souvenir bank that I picked up in a touristy store in London in ’97. I can’t seem to part with it but at the same time, can’t get myself to leave it out in a room as an accent piece and a reminder to save change. So I look for more sculptural pieces that can double as decorative art. I just saw this one at Fred Flare. It’s a gold can which could easily pass as trash from the prior nights party but I like the cheeky idea.
A penny saved is a penny earned.
