I love getting store displays, but I haven't had a whole lot of luck lately. A friend of my husband's works at Wal-mart, and says he had a whole bunch of stuff "set aside" (including the big Yoda cutout from the Lay's Chip display...) and someone threw it out. Don't know why he didn't just take it home the first day. Oh well...
Today at Wal-mart I bought a twin sheet set and it was the last one in the shelf display box, so I grabbed the box with it. When I stopped by Kmart, they had two of the small throw pillow display boxes and both were empty, so I nabbed one of those. I have plenty of sheets, pillowcases, and small pillows (most of the latter from Ep1) to fill up those display boxes, easy.
The best displays I have are from when I worked at B. Dalton when Ep1 came out. I got the Pit Droid, Battle Droid, and Droideka lifesized paper models that came out with the DK books, as well as an Obi-Wan Kenobi stand-up and a standee that featured C-3PO (with light-up eyes) and two Jawas. The manager knew I was a huge SW fan, so I automatically got everything. <G>
I nabbed one of the ComLink store display units when our local Service Merchandise went out of business. The first time I asked, I was told I couldn't have it, but I didn't give up and asked again, and that time they basically sold it to me for the price of a ComLink unit, which at their clearance price was under $3. Woo-Hoo!
