I picked up gloves on 70% off too!! And to backtrack -- early this month I posted that our local resale shops don't have good quality stuffed animals. Well, I just picked up a baggie filled with 7 new small 3" long stuffed animals for total of 75 cents! That made my day since we pack boxes for the older kids and those who are 14 yrs old can enjoy a small stuffie packed into a little spot which leaves more room for other things the older kids need.

Glad you were able to find stuffed animals of the size you wanted at such a great price!
