New slippers

After months of wearing heavy socks and furry slippers I look forward to warm weather and wearing sandals, flip flops and lightweight slippers.

These pretty pink slippers by HB are available in women’s sizes 6 through 10 for $2 a pair at New Utrecht Avenue 99 cents and Up Store.

Even with my thick socks on these slippers are very comfortable. There are also slippers like these available in orange, red, lime green and turquoise. At this price I think I might buy another two pairs. They are comfortable and pretty enough to wear outside when I run a quick errand or go to the store.

The New Utrecht Avenue 99 cents and Up Store is located at 4819 New Utrecht Avenue, between 48th and 49th Streets, in the Boro Park section of Brooklyn, N.Y.

Greet your new neighbor with a cup of coffee

Two weeks ago, I met the new tenants who will move into the apartment above mine next month. They impressed me with their sincerity as hard working people who are serious about making a nice home for themselves in this building. After experiencing many ups and downs with the previous two tenants that got evicted I feel like this brother and sister are going to become my very good neighbors as well as tenants in this building.

On the day they move in, or the day after that depending on how busy things are upstairs, I plan to bring them a little housewarming gift of these coffee mugs and tray. Their will also be hot coffee and buttered rolls to accompany it. I think this will be a nice way for them to take a break from all the hard work of unpacking and setting up their furniture and belongings.

The ceramic coffee mugs are by Pride Products. The plastic tray is made by Creative Expressions. They are currently available for $1.29 each at the New Utrecht Avenue 99 cents and Up store.

These colors go with the kitchen cabinets in the upstairs apartment so I hope my new neighbors will like them and enjoy using them.

Spring returns…and so does bargain shopping in Brooklyn!

The temps have finally gone up a bit and at long last I can go out and hunt for bargains again. I’ve spoken to my neighbors and, like me, they kept their outdoor activities to only what was essential once the severe cold weather set in shortly after New Year’s 2014.

In the next series of postings I’m going to show off what I got during a visit to the New Utrecht Aveune 99 cents and Up store on Saturday, April 6th.

Hallmark Easter Card Pack.

Right now I want to let everyone know that Wonderland Card Shop in Dyker Heights is still open while they continue to liquidate all their remaining stock. They are selling a good selection of Hallmark Easter Cards at 50% off. I got this 6 card pack of Hallmark Easter cards for half off the regular price of $5.99.

Wonderland Card Shop is located at 6424 11th Avenue on the corner of 65th Street in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn.

In addition to the wide selection of cards still available, there are now some Lenox Disney collectible figurines along with a few Madame Alexander and Barbie collectible dolls on sale at 50% off their original prices.
