What a BARGAIN!!!

Ok, I don't normally do posts like this on my blog.

Alright, maybe I have done it once or twice :-).

But I just had to share this with you. Have you guys ever heard of or been to Garden Ridge? Well, it use to be one of my favorite stores. But they've changed a lot so I don't go there like I use to. ANYWAY, as you know, we'll be leaving for vacation in 11 days and I needed a nice bag/purse to carry-on. Garden Ridge has an awesome selection of bags/luggage/purses, OH MY!!!. So it was the first place I thought of. Not to mention, the prices are great. Oh, they also sell scrubs there. My daughter is in nursing school and has to wear a certain color scrubs. Well they have them at GR for $5.99 for the pants or the top. Can't beat that.

ANYHOO...I go in search of my bag today and this is what I found.
They also had it in the red color (pictured on the tag). But there was only 1 left and the zipper was kinda wonky.

Ok, so I'm looking through the THOUSANDS of bags and I find this one. Perfect! I look at the price tag (this is the good part) and I see that it was $49.99. It was marked down to $14.99. THEN I see another little orange sticker on it that has $8.00 on it. To be honest, I was sold with the $14.99! I hold onto the bag as I look a little more to make sure this one is really what I want. I make my way to the register (this is the BETTER part) only to have the lady scan it and it rings up...get this...$4.00!!! YEP! I got that bag for $4.00! I couldn't believe it.

Come to find out they are having a sale on all of their luggage and it's all 1/2 off the (orange) ticket price. The lady even showed me the sales flyer indicating the sale. Obviously this one guy knew about it. As he purchased 3 pieces of luggage, one being almost as tall as Jayla and 3 times as wide as she is. He got that thing for $15.00!!!

Anyway...I just had to share that with you. You may now carry on with your day! :-)

I'd be upset with you if you hadn't have bought it. After all, it screamed, "practically free!". :)

Cheryl Wray said...

WOW!! That is a great deal...and I love me a good deal!

Great find!! Too bad we don't have one of these stores in my area.

wow I wish I'd read this post before we bought our luggage. We got a good deal as we got in before Fortunoff closed down but nothing like those prices!! WOW!!!

Ok you know me... I was just thinking 'cute bag, good for Dawn!' :) But $4??? For a $50 bag? GOOD JOB DAWN!!! ;)

The closest GR to me is the one by you, which is not close obviously, or over in Gwinnett (also not very close). I guess I'll just have to make it a dual purpose trip... Hrm, now what other purpose could that be?
