Ice cream maker

Linens and Things is going out of business , so hubby bought me an electric ice cream maker Cuisinart ICE-20. Early anniversary present.
I look forward to making my own ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet, and sherbet.
He also bought me an electric popcorn maker. You notice these two things benefit him too ??

I was a Linens and Things today. Our store was pretty empty but it had a few good deals left. It was fun to walk through.

not yet, the freezer bowl has to be in the freezer overnight so tomorrow I will try a recipe, not sure if it will be ice cream or sherbet.

The one I was at still has a lot of things. I am waiting to see if they get to 50 -70 % off and maybe get a panini grill.

Guess I'll have to run out there today.

And what's wrong with irons? Nothing like a good one, especially if you quilt. I bought the last one and I'd love to find one of those little Rowenta travel irons on sale. I wish L&T sold Bernina stuff, then the credit card would be in serious trouble.

Yes, nothing is wrong with irons, but from my experience, it is about the last "gift" a woman would want their guy to bring home... Unless of course they've been hinting for a new one. And even then, I sure wouldn't wrap one up for Valentines Day (lol).

Sorry to be the bad news bearer......

No, not the entire chain is closing, just those stores which are doing poorly in sales. The chapter of bankruptcy they filed under is "reorganization", so whatever they do NOT sell at those stores which they are closing, that stock will be shipped over to those stores that will remain open, so don't wait too long, hoping to get a 70% off or more cuz it just may not happen!

One way you can do this is to just purchase whatever it is you are hoping for now, at whatever markdown it's at, and then check back in a week or so. If it is further marked down, you CAN bring it back into the store and they will refund any difference.

hmm the cashier had told hubby that the whole chain was closing. I guess she was mistaken. I didn't know that I could bring an item back for further discount, thanks for the information.
