I was in Hobby Lobby recently and they were sweeping the floor around the floral area.
There were several flowers in the trash pile, and yes, I scooped them up!
I took them to the register, found my favorite cashier who looks like my sister-in-law's mother, explained that I did not take them from the floor in the floral area or off the flowers and begged to take them home with me! She smiled, put them in the bag and I took them home!
So, the lovely silk flowers that will soon be adorning my daughters' hair? Yeah, they're from the trash pile.
