Start of a new month with a influx of new boys’ things.  My grandsons grew again, so we have:  Sizes 8-10-12 Pajama bottoms and pj sets; uw; long sleeve shirts; 1 pair husky jeans; 1 pair running pants.


We will be switching over from Halloween to Thanksgiving merchandise-especially tablecloths and some serving pieces of older china that will be great for the special occasion.  Winter jackets are out as well as hats, scarves and gloves and mittens.
