If you’re in retail, you already know that it takes a certain amount of optimism just to stay in the game.

And someone was optimistic that a dog owner (of a big dog!!!) would want these bones. Ya never know. Put ’em out there. Somebody’ll buy ’em.
And optimism extended all the way to Chinatown. Who wouldn’t want chestnuts just so they can roast them on an open fire?
