Here's what I learned about something for which the only description I can come up with is "Craigslist on Steroids":
1) If on the Friday before Father's Day you take your husband on a trip to the mall for clothes shopping, and while you are in Target (and you are not looking) he purchases a 12 pack of Pabst Blue Ribbon, shame on you for not seeing the "Swap Meet" request coming! At least he was starting his Clampett Family Father's Day weekend in style.
2) DO NOT fall for the Babycakes donut maker that they "throw in for free" with the purchase of an industrial faucet (do NOT ask about that faucet).
|If you want to make your husband feel better about the purchase, |
point out to him that at Michaels these things cost $30.
4) Although you have come home with everything from an industrial sink to books for the kids to decorations for the house to 3 pairs of shoes, to (lest we forget) a piece of sh*t donut maker, all for $59.99, Husband from Heaven MAY still say "I still don't feel like we got a great deal on anything". Considering the fact that 98% of what we saw probably fell off the back of a truck somewhere, he may be right!
I have to admit, (shhhhhhhh, don't tell HfH) I did enjoy the swap meet and would go again. I felt we got some good deals and found a few items we'd been looking for. The one we went to was Kobey's at the Sports arena, and I'd definitely go back.
