I'm sure most of you guys know the joys of outlet malls. A great place to find a bargain and stock up a bit on a favorite that may be discontinuing. I headed out to our nearest outlet mall yesterday and picked up a few deals.
My first stop ALWAYS is the yankee candle outlet. You can always find a GREAT deal on big jar candles, many which are still selling for the big bucks in the regular store, votives, and if you're lucky, tarts. The tarts are a little hard to come by in your favorite latest greatest scents but if you dig a little you can still find a few things worth getting. But the best deal, in my opinion, is the tart burners. They discount great tart burners like crazy there. I picked up this one for a friend who loves beachy items
and a very pretty glass snowflake sort of one for me (can't find picture). They were 6 bucks a piece if you bought two.
I also love going to the bath and body works outlet. I can get great cheap wallflowers there and that's probably my favorite to pick up from there. I got one of those for a gift to give for about $5 (I believe they retail at about $12.50). I also picked up a large serving dish with a stand for about $16 for another gift.
You may be surprised at what you would find there, if you always thought it was for rejects and damaged goods.
