Due to unforeseen circumstances, our normal family menorahs are inaccessible this year. Last Friday at noon I went out with Junior Elder on a quest to find a nice, cheap, last minute menorah.
The local Judaica stores had many but they were generally in the $100-$250 range and since I was only planning on using it this year, that didn't make sense.
Finally, we went to a dollar store.
8 medium sized blue glass candlesticks, one larger clear candlestick, and three packages of colored tea-lights later, and I had my $12 Elder Menorah 2006:
The household was quite pleased!
