It didn't seem appropriate to add pictures of the cheap fans I purchased at the $ store to today's Fan Museum post, so I'm showing them separately.
I went into the $ store with my hubby looking for arithmetic flash cards for our grandson. It was the day before my fan presentation at the assisted living facility, and I spotted them quite by accident. For $1 each I couldn't past them up. The 'sticks' are plastic, and the 'leaves' are nylon or polyester.
So many times I've seen ladies at various functions fanning themselves with a program, bulletin, or piece of paper they pulled from their purse. A fan would be so much prettier, and produce better results. Ladies, we should renew the fan's beauty and virtue by carrying one in our purse. It would probably evoke conversation - but hopefully not in the middle of a performance, program or sermon! ;-) Pop over to Dollar Tree to purchase one.
