For several years I have been wanting to head down to San Leandro to the NorCal Pottery Outlet. I had heard some stories about the deals on pots, but had in the back of my mind equated some of these tall tales to some "embroidering." Today was the day that I finally got myself together, braved the traffic for the 40 mile drive and arrived promptly at 10AM when they opened. (I had called ahead to make sure they were indeed open, because I had heard just as many stories about gardeners arriving to find the gates locked.)
I'm rarely at a loss for words (big surprise, huh?!!) and I am a seasoned shopper. I am an excellent shopper in fact.
I was speechless. I was overwhelmed and overloaded with eye candy. I was reading the signs and having a hard time understanding them.
$65 Per Cart
What could that mean.......? I wandered around for a few more minutes and finally an employee came up to me and asked if I needed help. I do believe I must have looked like I was in trouble and experiencing some breathing problems.
The deal was that it was a SPECIAL SALE DAY!! Fill a flatbed cart as high as the top of the handle with whatever you can and it will be $65.
Does that mean one layer or can you stack them inside each other. "That works. Whatever you can fit on the cart and still push it yourself."
Flashbacks of the old TV program "Queen For A Day".........
Here's a shot of the front of the Outlet warehouse. The flatbed cart is what you could fill for $65.
