Oh Happy Day! I got to go to one of my MOST favorite sales this morning - the sock sample sale out by Turtle Lake.
Yup, you are all now scratching your heads, aren't you. Here's the skinny: one of my real estate colleagues has a sister who is the sock buyer for Target (doesn't that sound like a cool job? "Yes, I buy SOCKS for Target."). And every year in October, for only 3 days, she has a big sale out of her home on Turtle Lake in Shoreview. She does it to off-load her leftover stock for the year. Regular socks go for $1 a pair, and LUXURY socks go for $2 a pair.
I bought five pairs of angora/cashmere blend socks in VERY pretty colors for only $10. Then, the sister threw in 2 pairs of athletic socks for free. I LOVE free!!! I may just go back and buy more - it's very addicting. Where else can you find anything with cashmere in it for $2?
So, my stocking stuffers (yes, socks as stocking stuffers - it's very post-modern and eclectic) for a few folks are DONE. Yay.
