Fat Cookies is a San Francisco cookie shop that is literally fishing for customers. This innovative bakery is selling cookies via a bag dangling from a second-story window.

The bag is dangled down to the sidewalk, where hungry pedestrians need only to tug on it and deposit $1 to get a fresh-baked cookie. While the idea behind Fat Cookies sounds a little silly, it is actually genius. Why spend money renting out a location for a new business when you can let your customers come to you?
