Silly things bought in the Sales
« on: January 04, 2018, 09:41:35 PM »
Have you bought anything funny in the sales?
Did you spot an amazing bargain?

So today I walked past Waitrose supermarket - and a man was putting yellow price-reduction stickers on fake outdoor Christmas trees (80cm tall, approx) at £2.50  :shocked: I was suckered into buying one! My husband will go mad at me... now I need to hide it away for the next 11 months...  :lol:

Also, in another shop, I found a pack of cute pop beads for 70p (instead of £5) which my kid loved playing with  :cool: and what I ended up wearing later this evening as I prepared dinner (so glam!)

One of my coworkers beat me to it but we had a 10ft abominable snowman plush at work XD I totally would have though. He was on sale for $45 down from like $270.

Oooh I bought something!

Whilst in HobbyCraft I spotted some Deco Den Bling on sale for £1.50 a pack. I've wanted to try it for agoes, so how could I say no :P

Deco Den Bling is a kind of paste that looks like cupcake icing and you pipe it like icing :) it's not food, it's fake.

He is a huge, and super soft. She's been driving around with him in her passenger seat. If you've been a Kohls recently it's the one from the Christmas display.

Even funnier if she had a foreign car such as UK drive one with the driver seat on the opposite side. Imagine the looks that would get.

I haven't really bought anything in the sales :(

Well, it works on ponies (and dolls) too :D

I have had great fun with it (and still have some left for more fun) and it was well worth the £3 I spent.

Years ago at the Disney Store my cousin and I bought these small Home on the Range pillows of the cow characters for only $2 I think it was just because they had these weird creepy staring smiles on their faces. I've gotten rid of mine by now.

This tiny photo is not mine but this is what it looked like:

At a nursing home yard sale in 2003, I bought this really scary looking orange puppet. Again I no longer have it but it was so much fun creeping out my friends and loved ones with it. Here is an old portrait of the horror since I don't have any photos:

I also once bought a small figure of Wolverine's head. It was just sitting in a plastic cube and again I bought it just because it was weird looking. Did the same thing with a keychain that was just a plush of the Hulk's head.
