What I found on my visit:
A singer's sewing kit, for less than $6. The same thing is listed on Amazon for $8.78 list price $11.99.
I also bought two sewing baskets.
It was less then $8 and then I used my secret code for the week which gives you an additional 50% off one item so it was less then $4. The exact basket is available on Amazon for $25.68 and list price $29.99.
Since basic crafts were 50% off, I got this kit for around $5, it was originally about $10 and sells on Amazon for $20.84. The outer box was slightly damaged, but I can handle that for such great savings!
OK I bought a ton of other stuff too because I don't live nearby and I was in town for a conference.
Each week they offer special deals. The week I visited they had basic crafts, school supplies and holiday items an additional 50% off the tag price. They don't sell online and they don't ship. The only way to save is to visit.
