Creativity Will Out

If you've never shopped at a Plato's Closet store (or never even heard of it, for that matter), it's helpful to know that it's a teen-oriented consignment clothes shop. Like many consignment stores, they group the clothing on the racks not just by size, but by color.

I recently noticed the handmade signs on the bins behind the counter. Instead of something corporate or badly done, there were instead these charming labels, full of the personality of the person who made them.

Gray bins on a shelf with hand-drawn cursive color names like Black, Red
I especially liked the one for white clothes... on a gold sheet of paper.

Goldenrod paper labels with the word WHITE as drop shadows only and leopard printed letters
And the fact that the leopard prints have to share a bin with the gold garments.
