Florida Flashback: Don't Look at Me....

This ad, spotted in a popular hardware store, the American equivalent of B and Q,  rather tickled me. 

Note that everything is also in Spanish. It's the same in our local branch in western New York, where there are not that many Spanish-speaking people. It was some light relief after discovering - wouldn't you know - that the perfect window shutters in the exact colour we were after had just been discontinued. They now come only in black. It seems that no one wants sage green any more. But we just have to sit it out - as when the lady from the rental agency (the one that didn't get our business) turned up her nose at our sofa "Pink! No one wants pink!" And now the design magazines are full of it.
