Look what I found at Sears!

I love a bargain!  While Cliff was buying himself a Christmas gift in the tool section at Sears (a reciprocating saw, whatever that is) I was looking through the rather bare-looking shelves in the Christmas trim area.  Things were very picked-over, and what was left was marked down.  Signs everywhere practically shouted, "50% off".  I happened to notice on a high top shelf the box you see in the picture which, as you can see, was marked $89.99.  "How much is that," I asked a salesman.

"Well, let's see, 50% off would be...."

Another salesman came scurrying over with a scanner in hand.  "Here, let's make sure," he said. 

"Hey, today it's 75% off!"

The first salesman said, "Aww, I was going to get that for my mom."

Well, as my ex-daughter-in-law has often told me, if you snooze, you lose.

There's a volume control on it, and you can select non-Christmas music after the season's over.  My granddaughters are going to love fooling around with this... and it cost less than $25. 

Oh yes... I LOVE a bargain!

that is great! My carousel is a Mr Christmas too. They are so neat. Limited numbers are made and they do not make them again the next year. It is always different.

AHA! I see you love what i love. My husband started buying those for me when we were first married. Had twelve gorgeous ones and then our house got broken into and all of them were stolen along with whatever the thiefs wanted. Glad you got this. It's beautiful. *Barb* http://journals.aol.com/barbpinion/HEYLETSTALK
