I also picked up what Dept. 56 calls "Jewelry for the Tree" and the suggested retail price on it is $17.50...( I think someone had a touch much to drink before they thought up that price ) at any rate, Dept. 56 or not the quality of them is far far from being worth anywhere near $17.50...and even at Christmas Tree Shops where they were $4.99, that was still in my opinion more than they were worth...however, at 90% off and only 50 cents each I have a plan to take them apart to make something else of them. Most likely for my own Christmas ornaments. The fact that they came in sheer little drawstring bags is just a plus ^^.
And to top they day off we decided why not stop at The Hallmark Shop...and we hit the jackpot. They were just marking down all of their Christmas ornaments from 75% off to just $1, $3 and $5 each. Of Course... i went straight to the $1 ones lol. I did however pick up three that were $3 each only because one was a gingerbread house and I can't resist anything gingerbread. And the other two I knew my daughter would adore. So about 30 or so ornaments and $40 later ( The price I would have paid for 2 or 3 before Christmas) I came out all smiles with a huge shopping bag overflowing with ornaments.
