Friday Finds, Superhero Style: Bat Signal

Meow is right. Last weekend I found three out of six 1992 Batman Returns collector cups from McDonalds at a yard sale. They were carelessly thrown in a box marked FREE, what a steal! The frisbee batdisc lids were long lost, but they were the designs with the best comic art - Batman chasing a villain, Catwoman jumping from building to building, and Penguin riding his rubber ducky of death.

I prowled Etsy for Catwoman costumes two weeks ago, so today I summoned Batman instead. My searchlight illuminated several handmade bat signals.

  10. You sometimes find the coolest stuff in the "free" box, which is why the best things in life are free. I loved this Batman movie. I don't remember the cups, but my little bunny mind isn't very good at recall.
