Gobble Up Some Great Deals at November’s Garage Sale.

Saturday, November 10th, 2012 | Author:

Yes, it’s that time of year where the air is frosty, the leaves have turned and fallen, and turkeys everywhere are a little nervous. Here at OWC, though, we’re continuing to put out a cornucopia of great deals.

OWC’s November Garage Sale Items

As always, you’d better act fast – items are “first come, first served” and of varying limited quantities. Quantities are limited to that which is on hand and items automatically count down and ‘disappear’ as sold out. Sorry… no rain checks.
