I just read that Dollar Tree bought out Family Dollar.
Now I feel just a bit responsible!
When I was selling my plates and knives the best sellers were the Family Dollar plates. I couldn't keep them in stock. I would have beautiful antique cut glass plates that never had a chance to sell if the customer saw one of the snowman plates.
Pat and I would travel all over Michigan and buy boxes of them. We would start in September. I went through boxes and boxes and boxes of them.
Last year I didn't buy any. We imagined stores being sent extra cases to keep up with the previous year's demand.
Sorry Family Dollar!
