Jim and I decided to run to Garden Ridge today to get a few things we needed for the house and (fortunately) drove to the one in Plano, Texas which is located in a little Antique Strip Mall. We ho-hummed around Garden Ridge to leave empty handed, but decided to check out the other stores there. We came across 75% OFF BOOKS. I know what you are thinking...junk, nothing worth getting and not really 75% off...that is what I thought too!! Oh but we were so wrong. This is a teacher/parent oasis! They had rows and rows of organized books, popular books that I have purchased at full price from various big name bookstores. In fact, last week I spent $6.95 on 2 books form Target that were here for $1.73. Then, they had a clearance section and we got a coloring book for 25 cents!! I recommend coming here and bringing your kids and letting them pick out like 5 or so new books to read (you won't break the bank and they will be thrilled!). It was totally clean, well organized and the people were super friendly. I can't wait to go back for more!!!
Hello....Gorgeous!!! My new favorite bookstore by far:
Oh yes, you are reading this correctly, $1.73. This book can also be found at Target for 6.95...really, I saw it there last week!! What, what!!
One day she'll learn to read the book right side up!! But who cares how she reads it, it made for a fun and quiet ride home!! (By the way, that book was $3.50 and came with a bird feeder that we can go put in our tree once I get some bird seed!!)
What could be better than reading with Daddy? And he had PLENTY books to read after our trip there!!
