Christmas Tree Shop

Do you have Christmas Tree Shops where you life? I love this store. They have such great bargains. My wife (MrsGB) is the baker in the family. A while ago she decided she wanted some extra large muffin pans. We had a large credit at Williams Sonoma so one day she picked up a muffin pan there for $30. Once she got home we both decided that is WAY too much $$$ for a muffin pan. Well the other day I was at the Christmas Tree store and I saw a silicone extra large muffin pan for $4. What a deal! I of course was the good husband and picked it up for her and it works great.

If you have one of these stores near you and you haven't check it out yet then get your butt over there. You won't be disappointed.

You have to check out the food section in these stores. Many strange and wonderful products from often small maker that didn't sell and now they're a bargain.

I'm not sure if I've ever seen one of these in Oregon. Are they open all year round? Or is it a seasonal thing?

Yep they are open year round. Christmas Tree is just the name. It really doesn't have anything to do with X-mas

We have one in an outlet mall by us. They do have some great deals and nice gift-y stuff for the house, too. Ours doesn't have a food section, though!
