1.) They have fabric. A lot of it. And I feel about fabric the way a fat kid does about cake. I want it all and am never convinced I have enough. I even want (but refrain somehow) to buy the adorable Peanuts Halloween fabric. ::swoon:: But really, what the heck would I do with that? Halloween table cloth? skirt? bag? curtains? I don't think so.
2.) The "dollar spot." Granted it's not as glorious as Targets or Michaels but still, everything is a dollar! And for some reason when I see things in the dollar spot, they all of a sudden become necessary and I justify it by saying "but it's only a dollar!" Stamps, notepads, blank cards, it's a beautiful thing.
3.) Ridiculous little goodies lining the check-out line. For example, last night as I was waiting in line I stumbled across a pack of magnetic, dry-erase word bubbles. Um, ridiculously wonderful. How fun would those be on the fridge! If they had been clearly marked as $1, they would be mine but I couldn't find a price. And around the holidays they have those silly reindeer that poop jelly beans which always make me giggle. Ridiculous and I love it.
4.) The abundance of craft possibilities. From picture frames to scrapbooking and kiddie crafts. My creative juices get flowing just walking by this stuff and the next thing I know I have added ten projects to my "to-do list."
I have had to make a list every time I go there and promise myself not to stray from it. I bee-line straight to the things I need and try to ignore my peripheral vision. Dangerous, I tell you.
