As we were leaving church yesterday, part of me wanted to drive past a few of these locations to see just how much of a zoo the stands were as people scrambled to get their last minute eclipse glasses.
I'll be honest, I was late to the eclipse party. I run a small business on the side and it wasn't until I was making some "glow-in-the dark" eclipse t-shirts on Thursday night that I decided I wanted a pair of glasses to check it out.
From gas stations, to clothing retailers, to breweries, to wineries...everyone is trying to make a quick buck off Monday's historic total solar eclipse. Some of the souvenirs have found their way onto the national stage.
