Discount Dish

prodotti_shopping_bags_cartWe all have our favorite stores for discount deals, whether online or brick-and-mortar stores.  I chuckle when I come across “sale” items in the hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

I mean, really?

If it’s designer, top drawer, upper end, just say so, and be done with it.  Who cares about sales then, anyway?

But, for the rest of us, this economy means cutting back,shopping-bags slashing prices, and shopping wisely, particularly for kids whose sizes change non-stop.  Our four kids have pretty much stabilized in terms of sizes.  Hopefully, our youngest daughter, at almost 13, will continue to grow in height.  However, the other three are in the full-bloom teen years and wearing adult sizes.  And with adult sizes, come adult prices.

Enter Gabriel Brothers, my latest, year-long, love affair.  Gabe’s has it going on.  (No, they have not asked me to write this, and they do not know of my existence.)  If you’re anywhere in the approximate mid-Atlantic region of the U.S., you’ve got to check them out.  Specifically, their stores are located in Kentucky, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia.  It’s generally worth a drive.

As in any discount store, when they have something, they have175403-MM8248 something, and when they don’t, they don’t.

But when they do….

Recently bought some beautifully-lined, navy blue blazers for Petya and Pasha.  Good name, good quality, I didn’t see anything wrong with them.  Normally $495, marked down to $29.95.  I can handle more than 90% off.  Or, polo shirts for $3.

A raw silk blazer for Benedetto, also lined, similar original price, now $24.95.  A linen summer shirt for $85, currently $13.  These are prices that bring a smile to my face.

Do you have any fave discount places?
