B&M (fashion/style/people photographers): Halloween clearance sale
If you are a fashion/style/people photographer without a blockbuster budget, finding props and different items to use for creative purposes need not be a roadblock if you are willing to be creative with your sources! Tonight is Halloween, so starting tomorrow, the various brick and mortar Halloween stores will be starting clearance sales. Depending on your style of photography, you may be able to find things that you can re-purpose at a fraction of the cost of catalog prices. As usual with these type of things, it is a big YMMV (your mileage may vary).
