Keep an Eye Out for the X because they are everywhere these days. Especially on really great outdoor gear.
Every few months our local REI Stores have a garage sale. They sell all the stuff that people have returned at really great prices. Some of the items are unused or barely used while some things have had the life beat out of them.
I guess that happens a lot because REI allows you to return just about anything at any time if you're not satisfied. It's a great policy but I'm confident that a few folks take advantage of their system.
So, we picked up a few items at the garage sale REI had on Saturday September 11th at their Round Rock, Texas store. The only draw back to the great deals is that everything you buy will have a large, conspicuously placed X on it.
So, keep an eye out for those Xs. And...if you have an REI nearby you should check out their garage sale.
The Downtown Austin store will host their garage sale on 9/18/2010. They are located at 601 N. Lamar Blvd. Right across the street from Whole Foods.
Thanks for checking in and have a great evening,
