How to get the best deals this holiday season
With the holiday shopping season in full swing, consumers are buying things they don’t buy very often. But even when shopping in unfamiliar territory, you can get great deals on top-quality items if you know what to look for.
The editors of Consumer Reports Money Adviser compiled a list of the best shopping advice from Consumer Reports’ test labs and other sources.
Around this time every year there is a shortage of 3×5 index cards and large safety pins on the shelves of Clarksville area grocery stores. While it may perplex most women who are in need of those items, to local mothers “in the know” they understand why.
For over a decade Clarksville mothers have turned to the Little Lambs and Ivy consignment sale twice a year to clothe their children for the upcoming season. What began in Donna Springer’s basement in the 1990’s has grown into quite an establishment, boasting over 300 consigners and almost double that in shoppers that pour through the Machinist Union Hall (located behind Wyatt Johnson off of Wilma Rudolph Blvd) during the four days that the sale is open to the public.
