(edited for clarity - I was joking about the OP, not you, thief)

Was on sale here I guess, or the clerk liked me, anyway I walked out with ours for $24 and change. A pretty nice village, matching toy stores/castles, a bunch of different Boardwalk type stores, Victorian houses & buildings, some animated ones, street light poles, nice lighting systems to go with them all, even mini spot lights to add ambience, just a bunch of stuff. You could easily bust your kite fund putting a cool village together.

HA!

I saw that Lowe's is doing 1/2 off on Christmas stuff now, so i went to check it out.
I walked out with the store display for only $6.00

SCORE!

I never thought i'd be the owner of my own kite store.  ;D

Found mine wrapped up under the Christmas tree.  My wife is wonderful.  (guess it didn't hurt that I went and found the last one on sale for $11.00 and gave it to her to wrap)

This has probably been the biggest single month of new kite shops popping up around the country in years!

I love a deal so I'm pretty happy with my price and I love having my own shop.  Never the less I would have been grinning ear to ear even at full price.

Mine was under the tree but not wrapped, I guess Santa ran out of time. ($15.00)

Probably a good idea as the spars that store sells are really, really small..... I mean absolutely tiny.  ;)
