Besides the after Holiday Sales I go to Thrift Stores regularly. ÝI got 2 NEW knife sets, NEW Bathrobes, New Toys and more for a fraction of the retail cost. ÝI would caution you to check out retail prices prior to buying from a Ý2nd hand store though. ÝI have seen things priced higher than retail stores sell them. ÝThis is usually because the manager (or pricer) hasn’t checked current retail prices or whatever. ÝOther great sources of gifts that are new or like new condition are Yard Sales and auction sites. ÝBe careful to examine the items for repairs or broken parts at Yard Sales and ask the seller at auction sites questions.
