$22,000 Picnic Basket

Some think the economy is bad. Maybe it is, but just maybe IT'S OVER for conspicuous consumption.

Several months ago the New York Observer wrote about Margaret Russell, Elle D├ęcor’s editor-in-chief, who ran a story about a picnic basket that sold for $22,000!

In contrast The Sale Rack went to the Strasburg Antique Market in Strasburg, PA, where Natasha bought an all-inclusive picnic basket for $25.

Did some of us just go bonkers for awhile? I think so. Its akin to an investor switching from go-go growth stocks to book value and dividend paying stocks.
