Day After Christmas Sale Acquisitions
My wife and I are habitual day after Christmas shoppers; most of our large collection of decorations was acquired at the day after sales through the years. On occasion we have had to split up so we could each be at one of our favorite stores when the doors open. We have even scouted out things we are interested in on Christmas Eve so we know right where to go on the day after. I have even gone as far as moving a desired decoration to another part of the store to improve my chances (all is fair in love and decoration acquisition). This year we had it easy as Macyís opened at seven Dillardís at eleven and our favorite Hallmark at noon. Here is a picture of this years haul.
The Waterford blown glass ornaments, the Department 56 buildings, the Hallmark ornaments and gift-wrap were all 50% off. The Lenox glass ornaments were 60% off and the Nutcrackers and Christmas cards were 75% off. Any other after Christmas sale junkies out there letís see what you got.
'I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future!' Scrooge repeated, as he scrambled out of bed. 'The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me. Oh, Jacob Marley! Heaven, and the Christmas Time be praised for this! I say it on my knees, old Jacob, on my knees!' (Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol)
