    Disney Discount stores- can you hear the money sucking away?

    One of those traveling Disney clearance stores is in town- I knew I was in trouble.

    Went Saturday to get an idea of what we liked, what the kids liked. They had alot of the retro stuff, loads of clothes and pins and stuff.

    Went back today ready to open the wallet and get some "cheap" Disney goodies.

    Ha ha...

    I did not spend as much as I thought I would- because I ended up not buying the black and tan leather jacket with the 10th, 20th 30th and 40th patches on it- with a 50th logo. The thing was $385 retail, selling for $229. But once I put it on I found it too masculine, too boxy, and it cut me off in a less than attractive way- so I opted out. No matter the number of cool Disney maniac points I would have gotten for owning it. So that saved some $$$$.

    They are getting new things in all the time so I know I'll be back- but for today we ended up with-

    Ian- a Tshirt with Goofy on it, with gold ears. A chef Goofy beanie.
    Braden- A stocking hat with a Mickey head made of a dragon. A wrist cuff that says "condemned" (from ToT)
    Rose- A blue Princess robe. Bell costume dress. A retro t-shirt (that matches one I got for myself) a pin with Aurora riding on a golden carousel horse. A Tinkerbelle wrist band.
    Davis- a t-shirt (for when he comes home)
    ME- a retro shirt, retro drink charms (I wanted the retro shot glasses but they were gone when I went back) a book with loads of pics of the parks and attractions. Postcards, a pin like the one I got Rose.

    Got some random stuff- extra stuff for our potato head. Some things for Rose that were cute but too big for her, going to set those aside. A little robot Minnie- for Christmas probably. Mickey wristband for someone later-

    I'm not upset about the jacket, I know I would have had buyers remorse later- but then I went onto Disney- and found this.....but I doubt I will get that either.

    Figure I'll go back once a week or so

    Trouble has come to town and it's wearing Mickey Ears!

    Thanks for the offer but unfortunatly daughter does live in a town big enough for one so when I visit....

    Glad you liked the card! A friend, my cousin and I had just come back from a rubber stamp/ scrapbooking convention and I was inspired!

    It was very creative- I would have known who it was from without seeing the address

    You and penguins are permanently attached in my mind- Ii get anything with Penguins on it and I will know where it came from. It's just too cute.

    Well I don't have any "Easter" penguins so I may not get ambish enough to do Easter ones!

    You do that- I can handle the publicity I have a brain storm going-too bad I don't have a "trademark" so to speak-

    Hmm, now I need to come up with something.

    Oh, I know of those...the one in Fullerton, and they usually have one that moves to different places around here in The Bay Area, too. Yeah, they almost always usually spell trouble for my checking account. xD Especially if there's Haunted Mansion merchandise.
