Philadelphia Steals & Deals Happy Father's Day

Real Estate Agent with HomeStarr Realty RS143922A

Happy Father's Day  Dad. Roses I place here I know you will love. I miss you so but in my heart, I know you are always watching over me. Let's talk about 

Please don't tell, but my friends and I went to 2nd Ave in Fairless Hills. You know when I sing the song" They call her secondhand Rose cause she's wearing second-hand clothes". There are some days and some stores I do not look at the clothes, but this store was very clean and  Hannah Rose started looking. We had just come back from Sunday Brunch and we were laid back. You really have to have patience. Low and behold suddenly three tops by my favorite designer all in a row. Two still had tags on them and all were in my size.  Believe me when I tell you they are my favorite shirts and cost $59 95 retail - these were $6.99 I felt like a robbed a bank. I had such a shopping rush. I was ready to leave after I tried them on- Now I will tell you there were many clothes that I had to look through before I came to these. So if you do not have the patience or the shopping gene these 2nd hand stores may not be for you. I had a blast. Last winter I found a full-length cashmere American-made coat J Perry, Marvin Richards on a  sale day for $15.  You could have knocked me over with a feather. I love that coat such a classic. Everything is cleaned or washed before it is put on the floor to sell.

I stopped a Marshalls Home store where I picked up two pillow packs for $19 I went back today for two more as they are awesome, I was not sure they would be comfortable to sleep on but they were amazing Beauty Rest Platinum and cool max copper technology washable also. I saw a masked man looking at all the pillows. He looked as confused as I had been. I held up my pillows and said I purchased these a few days ago and came back to get more. I thought Hannah stop talking to strangers, but a few minutes later I heard him saying these holding them in the air. I smiled and said yes. I hope he is as happy with them as much as me for $19 . I found the same pillows on Amazon for $50.99.This is a Great Steal of a Deal and maybe Dad would like some new pillows. There were lots of great last-minute gifts for Dad sneakers, shirts, sunglasses and so much more for Father Day. There were also Ugg Blankets  full/queen $39.99  - King $59.99 



Ladies love their Cosmetics after looking for lipstick and eyeshadow, not finding too many selections in colors I went to local big chains like Ulta where I really found nothing special received no samples, and was double taxed. Suddenly a voice in my head said the Cosmetic Company Store which is an outlet store for top brands like   Smash Box, Too Face, Bobbi Brown, Estee Lauter Clinique, Mac, GlamGlo, Origins, and Tom Ford. When I walked in everything was 40%, 50% and some 75% off. I walked out with two new eyeshadow palates that were priced at $27 there 50%off  with beautiful colors Too Faced which, if you have ever used their eye shadows are my favorites they are rich and stay on some may call them high pigmentation. Their newest matt long-wear lipstick that I just purchase for $22 elsewhere $10  needless to say I stocked up on my favorite colors. Best of all, if you spent $65 you received an additional 60% off your entire purchase. What a DEAL  - The ladies that worked there were so helpful not overbearing,but if you asked they would help.

There were also many gifts for men. The men's skincare, There were a variety of Men's Cologne and many fantastic sets for Fathers Day all on sale what a great gift for DAD on his special day 



My best buy was the Cosmetic Company Store at Philadelphia Mills. I do like to refresh my makeup using old makeup can cause irritation breakouts and even infection. In stores like this, you can even find top brand makeup for the same price as the drug store prices. Again, you have to be lucky 

This week I have settled ten acres on Commercial ground with a delightful young man and his father. The sellers had the property for many years and decided it was time to sell it. They were not going to use the property and now was the best time to sell.  Everyone was happy and everything went smooth. 

Earlier this week my listing on the ground in Bensalem went under contract, there are some contingencies, but we are confident things will go smooth.

Good morning, Hannah... nothing like the thrill of the hunt for a great bargain... and you certainly found some great ones this week. Can't remember the last time I went shopping for anything besides groceries.

Nina Hollander, Broker  good morning the weather here is more like a fall day than a summer day. Grocery shopping can also be fun when I am not overpaying. Finding a bargain for something I need in today's economy is so refreshing I find I must share this information

Congratulations on the real estate items, and thanks for sharing the rest. I don't like shopping but that clothing store (the first paragraph) sounded like a great place to go. I probably would have found something also - the deals sounded great!

Kat Palmiotti  Some of the second hand stores really go to good causes. There is one that helps people who just get out of prison find jobs and places to live another helps the disabled. There are metal bins outside some in the front and some in the back of the stores for donations. I always go through my things and try to donate saleable items

You are definitely quite the shopper!  I do not like to shop at all so it is rare for me to search out a great deal unless I am ordering through the internet, haha.

Jun 19, 2022 05:01 AM
Hannah Williams

Brian England  i was ordering through the internet during the pandemic, but many stores were going out of business. I was finding going into the some of the stores I was finding better deals-not all. Plus, I would think these stores are very close to me almost outside my door and on my way home from the office 😊

Good morning Hannah. Promise I won't tell. While I have not been to a second hand store does not mean I should not go. I like great deals, so I should give it a try. Enjoy your day.

Wayne Martin  Yes, I think you should some of them will blow your mind. You can find just about anything there books, art, clothes, electronics ,furniture and so much more it is a hit and miss experience

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400  It also really lets you see where the world economy truly is for you. Many of the shelves in stores are filled with items that are Pre- Covid. I have seen shoes I purchased in some stores that I purchased three years ago still for sale. Luckily I am not hard on shoes and keep them in their boxes so no need to purchase them. Same with many other items on shelves 

Happy Father's Day Larry

Hannah, wish you lived closer, YOU could shop for me, I hate it!   Would definitely not have the patience to sift through a 2nd hand store.    You do a great job finding these deals, and a coat for $15 is a steal.

Jun 19, 2022 07:32 AM
Hannah Williams

Joan Cox The funniest thing about that coat was I was looking for a coat just like it. It is such a classic design. The ones in the stores could not come close to this. Finding cashmere made in USA  is not so easy and for that price -new in today's store no way. 😊

Hi Hannah,

What a find $6.99 for a blouse and you got 3 of them. YIKES!  I have been thinning my closet and trying to bring stuff to consignment shops but it is really tough. They only want clothes that sell FAST!  So I made a decision to bring my gently used clothes to places that donate to Battered Women shelters.
