There's also the running tab she has at the dressmaker's for yellow taffeta fabric. That stuff is uncommon in Grennet-sur-Chanoît, and would be an easy giveaway to any ambitious, sharp-eyed inspector-constable.Many years later, the Gotham City Police would use similar thinking to finally break down the flamboyant crime syndicates which had plagued their municipality for decades. Cherchez-l'art: shut down the art supply stores and the super villains would eventually run out of purple and green paint and be forced to abandon their garish, overdecorated, tilted lairs. As a bonus, it takes a certain form of villainy to charge the prices arts supply stores ask for purple and green paint, so that's two forms of villainy struck down in a single operation.
