I have been working in retail for 21 years now, and have seen quite a few products blossom from an unpopular, weird niche item into customer must-haves that there are now entire sections of the counter dedicated to. Puppy pads. Scented candles. Portable insulated tumblers. Duct tape.
Outdoor solar lights would be another such out of nowhere consumer phenomenon with literally billions and billions of these cheap plastic stakes sold each year. Unless you planned on reading a book at night while lying on your frontyard walkway, the lighting itself isn’t much more than decorative. But you can buy these solar lights with all kinds of pretty decorations attached to them… like the flower themed ones in my neighbor’s yard.
If only squirrels were nocturnal (they aren’t… my most popular post of all time!), perhaps I could get some pictures of them in the soft glow of the stored solar energy in these popular yard decorations. Oh well, I hope this week’s Saturday Squirrel has helped you to see the light… even if it isn’t very bright.
Have a great weekend everyone!
