Marshall's #1 - We had dinner in Ocean City, and since we were right there, we popped into Marshall's to see if I could find any RD goodies. I scoured the store and found nothing!! I asked one of the workers if she knew if there was any in the store (and she kind of/ not really knew what was talking about) and said there wasn't. So, I kept browsing, and remembered that I wanted to pick up a new food bowl for Jaxson. Well look what I found in the pet section!!!
So, once up to the counter, I'm all giddy by now, and I ask the clerk (as I put my canister on the counter) if she knows if there is any more Rae Dunn in the store. She said (and I quote), "No, that stuff goes out of here as fast as it comes in. There are a couple of girls who leave their numbers and we call them as soon as we get anything new in." Whatttttt??????? She also went further and said " they buy it all up and resell it on Ebay for a fortune" Whatttttt???????? (I've since looked some of the items up and the canisters are priced in the hundreds of dollars!!!) By now, I'm pretty aggravated, because while I had heard this was being done, to hear a clerk say it, just made me so mad/frustrated!!!!
I later kicked myself for not getting the STAY canister, because I saw it on IG a few days later in someone's kitchen used without the lid as a vase full greenery!!! Duh....STAY....Stay awhile.....OMG....I'm just so not with it!! All I could think of was "hey dog...stay"!! :O( I don't even want to talk about it!:O( And, not to mention, how, I couldn't use it so I didn't buy it just to mark up the price and resell it!!!!
I was actually looking for some holiday RD for Valentine's Day, but no luck yet!! I do like the MR. mug and usually make Peter's coffee in it, so he has a cute mug too!! :O)
Home Goods - my last chance that day was Home Goods. I headed straight to the dishes section and went all up and down the isles. Finally, I just plain out asked a clerk if they had any Rae Dunn, and she pretty much laughed at me! She said they had had TONS of the holiday stuff but it was gone almost before it could be put on the shelves....well surprise, surprise!! :O( She told me to check out the check-out isle on the mug racks. Yea, like there would be a surplus there....LOL...it's really not funny! Nothing...nada....zilch....struck out completely!! :O(
Seriously though, all I wanted from the store was one stinkin' holiday mug....but Noooooo!!
I ended up getting one Valentine's Day item from another IG girl selling at cost (plus shipping). Well good for her!!! <3 Thanks again @thelittlegreenbean
I'm not a big collector, but I do love an occasional cute mug and at least one holiday item.
At this rate though, my collection will stay very small. I was lucky though that Wanda just happened to be shopping there the week the Spring stuff had been put out and snagged me a bunny mug then later gave me a set of plates for my birthday!!! Yaaa!!!!
So, be on the lookout for these highly sought after pieces of clay.....
they'll either have the old MAGENTA markings on them
or the newer RAE DUNN stamp....
and if you find them.....
you might want to grab a few (but leave one or two for me please!!!! :O)
