Everything Has It's Price

Yesterday I passed by this Nativity Scene in a window on Atlantic Avenue on my way to the Salvation Army. I realized that yesterday was the Epiphany or Three Kings Day and the 12th Day of Christmas. The day when the Magi or the three Kings honored the birth of Christ with gifts of frankincense and myrhh. It was the also the day when I was growing up when we always took our Christmas tree down. Anyway, I was struck by the display but then I noticed the description...everything has it's price in Brooklyn these days. And if you are looking for a hand chair, the antique store across the street (Atlantic Avenue between Bond & Nevins Streets) has one amongst the big shipment that arrived yesterday afternoon!
