What's the matter Homer? Ain't you never seen a naked chick riding a snowglobe before? Price sticker reads "Reg. Price 3.99, Our Price $1.99".
These twin mermaids represent an especially rare and disappearing class of snowglobes found in the wild: relief snowglobes encased within a larger, three-dimensional plastic structure (see the Chinatown frog nearby). Unfortunately they are more delicate, and are not easily refilled or cleaned.
