Happy New Year to you all! May your days be filled with joy, your nights with fun, and your world with great bargains!]]>
Yes, it’s a granny square on a pin backing. That’s it. How much would you pay for this? Three bucks at a church bazaar? Not that much?
Well, the fine people at Prada would like you to pay $250.00. That’s right, two hundred and fifty smackers for a kid’s second crochet project attached to a brass pin. It’s not even a large one. It measures 1.75″. The fiber of the yarn is not identified. My guess at that price is unicorn manes.
When Prada couldn’t move them all at that outrageous price, eFashion House bought up some of the leftovers and tried to move them for $138.00. Alas, like the remains of Aunt Lucille’s legendary eggplant and marshmallow casserole, these have failed to move, prompting eFashion House to drop the price to $99.00.
Here’s a money-saving tip for free: if you want one of these, learn to crochet. You’ll save nearly a hundred dollars and learn a useful skill in case Prada decides to expand their line of granny square wear.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!]]>

<> But if you own this handsome travel game set by Geoffrey Parker, you’ll be ready whether the game is backgammon, chess or checkers. The hinged board folds into a thin, easy to carry case and the pieces are magnetic in case you want to play while travelling. And at two pounds, chances are it weighs less than your laptop. No matter where you go with this set, you’ll be ready to challenge anyone to a game in style.
Best of all, it’s on sale. Saks Fifth Ave normally carries this multi-game set for $425.00, but they’ve slashed the price to just $255.00. Now, is anyone up for a game of chess?
It can swivel on its wall mount for convenience, and runs on a single AA battery. The face has a 10″ diameter.
Of couse, since it’s here you know it’s a bargain. It’s available only through the website, and it’s marked down from $79.00 to just $39.99.]]>
And so it was that I looked upon this batik robe and drooled.
The gold batik print on sumptuous red is both elegant and earthy. It’s 100% rayon, one size fits most. Be sure to hand wash and air dry, so as to avoid shrinkage.
And yes, it’s a bargain, too! Originally priced at $75.95, Overstock.com now carries it for just $48.99. Now that’s what I call a good deal on a great item!]]>
