Um, just kidding sale is Aug 3-4

No, i did not forget about you guys.

 The reason i didn’t post details about the sale, aside from the fact that i am moving apartments this week and am having a small nervous breakdown, is that i had the date wrong.  The sale is Aug. 3-4, a friday and a saturday, from 10 am to 6 pm.  Apparently, instead of doing the Decatur sale like usual, we’re throwing our lot in with a different warehouse sale this year over on Lambert Place (near Piedmont Rd).

So here’s the rundown:

My personal favorites are Dakota J’s, bill hallman, and squash blossom. 

My advice for the sale is to get there early, because stuff goes quick.  I know some stores accept credit cards, but i’d bring checks to be on the safe side.   NOTE:  Wear your granny panties, ladies.  This is a communal dressing room situation, and as one of  the lovely sales girls who has to periodically walk into the dressing room to gather up clothes, i really get tired of seeing a bunch of bare tooshies.  I’m not a prude, but come on, it’s awkward.  And don’t even get me started on you no underwear people.   One customer (an older woman) at my job called me into her dressing room to look at a top. Unfortunately, she was wearing it with no botttom and no panties.  Arghh.

 So this week’s bargains revolve around moving, as that’s all i’ve been doing this week.  My new place’s bedroom is going to be closet-less (oh, the joys of loft living), so i needed a more affordable solution than hiring a couple of buff guys in toolbelts to build me a closet.  I found a couple at walmart.com

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=5995113   — this one is great b/c it’s on wheels and has storage for shoes/accessories on the sides.  At $50, it’s exactly in my price range.

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=5508732   — this one is simpler, but has two racks for clothes, which is better than even a regular closet.  At a sweet $27, it just might be the winner.

And it must be said, walmart.com had much better deals on storage/closet units than target.com.  I mean, i know they’re the evil empire, but just talking about what you get for your money, walmart’s stuff was better.   Target’s were either giant Ivanka Trump closet-sized monsters that cost way too much or rickety little racks with just a plastic cover that would probably fall apart in a year.    Not to mention, they had this cute little eyelet dress number on sale for $18 http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=5811617  Very little house on the prairie, but maybe the later years when Laura Ingle started dating : )

So next week, the move ends and i resumer my life as normal.  I’m thinking it’s time to start shopping for a dress for the fabulous “Jaime’s moving in and oh yeah we have like three people with birthdays so who wants to get so so drunk?” party we’re having in a week or so.  Join me as i hit end of summer sales to find the perfect party frock.
