Look that up in your Funken Wagnalls: Coffers

By in Random Thoughts on December 29, 2010

Reading an article about business plans, came across the word “coffers” as in “Black Friday Blowouts help divert money from your competitors to your own coffers” – or something to that effect.

I understand that in this context it normally means “strongbox” or more accurately “Financial resources”;

However, look at what it means in architecture; “A decorative sunken panel in a ceiling, dome, soffit, or vault.”

Hmmm, sounds like a good place to hide your coffers!
