Grand Bargains

These items are GRAND for a couple of reasons.

FIRST are the prices – a pair of swim trunks, shorts and t-shirt – total cost $4 (tax excluded; yes, clothing is taxed in VA). These “branded” clothing items would have cost several times that amount when purchased new. And these were in “like new” condition. What’s more, the t-shirt “talks” when the square on the lower left is pressed, even after a spin in the washer and dryer. We just know his mother will love that sound after awhile. We wouldn’t be surprised to hear it’s mysteriously stopped working.

SECOND it’s such fun to spoil grandchildren.

Grandson Bobby is a Sponge Bob fan (as you can tell) and lately has started favoring Spiderman. Maybe he won’t be seen in these those camouflage Spiderman shorts.thrift finds (5)Granddaughter Elizabeth will really be in the pink (sorry about that bad pun) in this ensemble. She is her daddy’s favorite little girl and, of course, our #1 granddaughter – total cost $2

thrift finds (4)These were definite thrift store bargains. While the cost of mailing them was just about the same as buying them, it doesn’t matter cause . . . It’s such fun to spoil grandchildren and we CAN at these prices !

what a bargain, when my granddaughter was born, she was the first girl in the family in many years, i hit the thrift and consigment stores and found 40 dollar dresses for 5 dollars and they had never been worn. people buy all those things for babies and they out grow it before they can use it all.

SpongeBob Square Pants, one of my heroes :-) I love going up early in the morning to see him on tv on weekends :-)

Have a great day!

Daisy, the prices were great and the shopping fun is free; it's amazing when you consider the original prices folks paid for these clothes.

Thanks Mona & Possum.

Lois, if their mom sends any pics with the kids modelling I will post for sure!

Sandra, gotta love those bargains and you really got some great ones too.

Steve, so do we have a route, usually on Wed when there's a 10% discount at one.

Hey Christer, I will admit to having watched SB too when it was on at grandson Bobby's home.

JP, good luck with the search and hope you find one.
