What's the latest hot product for sale at American Apparel? Why, it's the "Bag-O-Scraps!" Similar to their line of scruncis, American Apparel is seeking to scrounge up extra money by selling their waste. "Use them for all sorts of arts and crafts. Make clever jewelry, accessories, a card for your grandma or a colorful hanging sculpture for your apartment. Each bag comes with a zine with five fun and easy scrap projects, complete with how-to instructions." Oh yea, and each plastic bagful is $8. [AA via PSFK]
