Twice as Nice

The weather is getting cooler and the kids' clothes are getting smaller. It's time for new clothes, but you don't want to break the bank especially with Christmas around the corner. At the Twice as Nice Consignment sale in Cary you will find high quality kids clothes at affordable prices. You'll not only find clothes, but baby gear, toys, books and all things kid-related. I sometimes score some Christmas surprises too. For a limited time you can purchase an early shop voucher to shop before the public and get the best selection. All the proceeds for the early shop voucher will benefit the Mabopane Foundation, benefiting disadvantaged youth in South Africa.

Visit Twice as Nice Early Shop Voucher to purchase your pass today.

Twice as Nice still has some consignor spots open. This is a great way to earn extra cash and shop early too.

Time to Save

Say it ain't so. Unfortunately, it is. The Town & Country Hardware Store in Morrisville is closing. This great go-to locally owned hardware store is pushed out to make room for a Walmart Express (Boo). The good news is they are having a sale. Cleaning supplies, trash cans and crock-pots are 40% off and Radio Flyer wagons are 50% off. They have a lot of everyday things for the home at reduced prices, so it's a great time to stock-up. The owners do have seven other locations in the Triangle, so when the Morrisville store closes be sure to visit their other stores. The Morrisville store is located at 3560 Davis Drive  Morrisville, NC 27560 or call (919) 469-5686 for more information.
