Let's talk about Philadelphia Steals & Deals this week. I did find much and I did find some disappointments. By that I mean advertisements that were not fulfilled. When I reached the stores the promised ads were not in. The answer I received was the order never arrived. It was not just for one item but for several. I said that gas was expensive and drove there for these advertised specials. They understood apologized no rain checks. I was annoyed and left . It was not the day the ad started either. Went to my local store, picked up the chicken they advertised for almost the same price. What I did not like is they had chicken they were advertising .79 more a pound don't think I will be going back there for a long while.
Gas prices are through the roof for premium $ 5.26 which is what I put in my car it is slightly over regular $4.59 a gallon. I guess we should be thankful as I saw a fellow blogger in California and their gas prices are over $6 and expect prices to go even higher .We are being told of course until after the Summer expect no relief . Therefore are still experiencing pain at the pump.
Ross the Dress for less store over 55 get 10% off on Tuesday I did find some wonderful bargains too many. A beautiful planter of a woman that I have seen on other sites for upward of $40 priced here at $16+ a beautiful pop art picture at an incredible price of $24 not to mention other big planters that at other garden centers would have cost $69 for $29 plus many men and women's clothing at great prices many are Macy's and BEBE brands.Yoga pants can be purchased for $7.99 what a steal of a deal . Again, as I say when shopping know your prices and brands, but, at these prices you rarely lose. Keep your receipt easy return
After showing houses in Feasterville I stopped in a Liberty Ministry Thrift Store my good friends told me it was worth checking out. I worked at the Re/Max office down the road before HomeStarr for many years and had driven by but never stopped so today was the day. I was amazed at how big it was and some of the unusual things they had. They had some of the usual clothes, but I found myself gravitating to the furniture. They really had some beautiful pieces. . I found the perfect office high back padded chair with arms that looked like it had come out of a law office as there were 4. It would not fit in my car I called my friends and they just happened to be eating at the diner up the road.
While waiting I met this nice young man who worked there he told me that it was senior day Not that he was insinuating that I was a senior but if I was it would be 25%off . Wow Steal of a Deal . Dean & Paul loved the chair and found a new Pan Am New Travel Bag for $3.99 we Googled and they sell for $69 Steal of a Deal . By the way, with discounts this Chair which I love $35 Steal - On our was out also found an amazing lamp . This is for my friend Ron and Alexandra Seigel Challenge we met a man with a Cockatoo on his shoulder. Well, I went right up and Dean said oh does it bite, The Man said may take your finger off. Dean knew I wanted to touch that bird, So I just said "Hello" Cockatoo Rocky answered HELLO We had a nice conversation this delightful gentleman rescue birds. This is a store you should stop in never know what you will find. There was even a Grand Player Piano.
Another concern is Baby Formula and empty shelves scary. I know how I felt when the shelves were empty of cat food. My good friend is a grandmother and called me the other day so upset. How can they do this she asked me? She is such a good person mind you she takes care of her 98 year old mother. She went shopping for baby formula trying to help out her working daughter. She told me she had to go to three different stores before they found some taking her 98 year old mom with her. She is wondering why and how this has happened? I don't have an answer for her when it will end. Price gouging she said for our baby food searching to feed our babies'. Mothers in tears with added anxiety. There was no way to ease her anger and sadness
On the bright side Spring is here and even though it is May I wonder if the weather is more like the end of April instead of May. I received a dozen white rose from my Boys and we dug holes for my rose bush and hydrangea that I purchased I found a mulch made out of recycled tires at The Home Depot plus sturdy metal hooks to hang flower baskets.
Across the road was another Garden Center located in Bensalen called R&R I found beautiful hanging baskets of flowers so full and beautiful. They actually were the nicest I had seen for the best price. The first place I actually had not walked out of. Their plants were extremely healthy and spoke to me. They even had outdoor & indoor palm trees. I will be going back there. Steal of a Deal for the quality they only accept cash
