In 1374, English Poet Geoffrey Chaucer said ”All Good Things Must Come to an End” ……. or so says Ask.com in 2013.
Well English Poet, prophesier, oracle…you were right…. turns out the love-hate relationship I’ve developed with the Euclid Dillard’s Outlet is no more.
Why just seven short months ago I put out the post: "A Black Hole of Bargains: Discounted Designer Duds Will Suck You Into the Euclid Dillard’s Outlet." And yet today, I find myself stepping inside those dingy doors one last time……mixed emotions running through me….
Disgust toward the clothing scattered in complete disarray, annoyance toward the unbearable lines…. dressing room lines…. check out lines….patrons with underwear lines…..
and yet, vein-pulsing excitement as I make my final score on 3 name brand dresses, each 80% off off the already reduced ticket price ….
Total Cost $22.17
Total Happiness Factor… Incredibly High
Pickings are getting slim, but there are still gems to find…. doors are slated to remain open till September 26.
May you finally rest in peace Euclid Square Mall.
Despite living in Cleveland for 6 years, I have just recently learned of the Euclid Dillard’s Outlet.
Having had the opportunity to visit on four separate occasions, I’m still undecided on if this is the city’s best kept secret or my new biggest curse….
Despite year’s of practice scouring clothing racks at discount bargain stores, I was NOT prepared for what awaited me inside….
Up for the challenge? Here’s what you should know:
Best of luck of bargainers… You’re going to have to work for it, but it can certainly be a fun challenge…
Up until 16 days ago, I had absolutely no business attending a children’s resale event such as the one being held this Saturday Oct. 6 at Westlake High School. Why the sudden Game Changer…. Sept. 18…
Sept 18, (1984)… A date once memorable due to the birth of my younger brother,
Sept 18, (2012)… A date now memorable due to the birth of my nephew…
Welcome baby Cullen Jamison… 6 lbs 7 Oz. of newborn handsomeness……
Though most first time aunties would have hit the retail stores right away, I knew that my Slovak Sister (first time mother to baby Cullen) would be returning the goods in exchange for savings bonds. (Not saying it’s a bad thing, just saying it’s a known thing.)
Rather than wasting time purchasing items that would later be returned, I did what any good Slovak would do and opted to hit up last weekend’s Bay Village baby resale where $10 snagged me two bags of name brand baby clothes including these amazing buys….
So how can I top the bargains I found last weekend…..Not sure that I can, but with 80 tables awaiting me chances are I’ll come out strong.
Just remember, get up early because the sale ends at noon. Those looking for the 8:00 a.m. early bird selection will have to pay $5 to enter but those willing to wait until 9:00 will only have to shell out $1. *And don’t forget to bring cloth totes to carry your goodies home!
Hope to see you there fellow bargainers!
