–>> If you check the “DOLLAR STATION” at your local WAL-MART store ( pending if they have one ), a large.. light blue pallet sales device with bins filled with low-cost nick-knack items on both sides of the station. A large variety of things like small utility baskets, pocket fragrances and lotions, combs & novelty items all about a dollar or so are in the bins. Innovative Designs has a large number of licensed stationary items in these bins as well ..all under 3 bucks. In fact every one of the things displayed on the table in the photo above was all priced at $1 each.
Pencil sets, sketching & notepad sets, jumbo erasers, temporary tattoos, stamping markers, memo pads, GIANT pens and pencils, pencil pouches ..and a cool dry-erase board –
..great for leaving a note for mom or dad, the kids, the dog, a honey-do list, or just listing various self-loathing character flaws.
SRI also has a TMNT specific licensing palette in WAL-MART stores with items for the whole family. Water bottles, tumblers, cups and dinnerware sets like two pack plates and kiddie bowls , children’s sleepwear, both kids and adult t-shirts, ball caps, adult boxer shorts, bed-wear with character head pillows and blankets, backpack danglers & more. These palettes may be be located near the dollar station bins.
** Let’s do a quick, abridged ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH Comic Round-up with Rich, great news as the MICRO SERIES format RETURNS focusing on KRANG and company !! ::
- Rough breakdown of the schedule for releases ; the past few weeks ..at least in Colorado and further west IDW’s shipping schedule has been off in certain circumstances and at certain shops but for FEBRUARY 27 we have : Secret History of the Foot Clan #3; TMNT #50 Treasury Edition
I haven’t investigated the reason for the shipping delays and wonkiness, but i guess it’s going to depend where on the map you live and Diamond’s shipping issues. Hopefully this will be remedied soon.
