Talk about bargains, there were so many of them to be found during a recent shopping excursion it would be enough to make die hard bargain shoppers want to dance in the aisles.
The treasure hunting took place at the Christmas Tree Shops in New York near Albany,
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Christmas Tree Shops, they are a series of stores that carry hundreds of household decorating items, cards, wrapping paper supplies, packaged food items, and on and on, all for good, fairly low prices.
They certainly carry a lot more than Christmas items.
There was a special section, however, of Christmas merchandise that was 90 percent off. Imagine that! 90 percent off the original price is a huge savings.
After someone announced the 90 percent off sale, I meandered over to that section.
Some of the first items that caught my attention were shiny napkin rings in eye-popping, carnival colors. Oh, they looked so festive and could be used for any special occasion throughout the year.
The original price tags said $1.49 each. I was trying to do a quick calculation in my head how much 90 percent off would make them
Okay, 15 cents each. Woo hoo! Into my cart went 10 of them for a whopping $1.50!
Then came a package of peach scented tarts to put on my little tea lite burner. These cost a mere quarter . (Hope they don't smell like rotten peaches when I go to melt them.)
Baby socks with Christmas decorations were 8 cents a pair. Imagine! That's four cents a sock. I bought two pairs.
You can see what they look like as the two flowers shown above are from the throw.
It was originally $12 and some change, now marked half price. Because I didn't really need a throw, I vacillated on this purchase until the brilliant idea to use it as a kitchen tablecloth popped into my mind.
This entire week, this cheerful piece has brightened up the kitchen. I just love it!
