    Unhappy Disappointing X-Border Shopping Trip

    So we went down to Buffalo yesterday on a whim, and I have to admit the biggest draw for me was checking out the Nautilus. Didn't find one anywhere! We went to Walmart and Baby Depot (as well as Target, Sears, JC Penny, etc.) So sad! (I did see lots of OHS, though )

    I was also hoping against hope to find a clearance Volo... no luck there either. The Target we went to doesn't stock ANY Maclaren - and they didn't have any umbrella strollers AT ALL! What's with that?

    My other mission was clothing for DS. I'm fussy on pants for him. I want no buttons, no flies, nothing - just elastic waist (and the fewer pockets the better.) It seems they always have tons down south, but not this time. I did find some that were part of an outfit at Walmart, and the shirts were nice enough so I bought a couple, but now that I'm home I can only find one of the outfits.

    My only score was a pair of wide runners for DS that didn't cost $80!

    What's up with WNY? Has southern Ontario cleaned your cupboards since we're on par now?

    The Volo's were on clearance a while back. The next big baby clearance at Target won't be until the end of the summer.

    Yeah, I knew the clearance had been a while back, but I was hoping I might find a stray one lost in a corner somewhere!

    The Volos were $25-ish on clearance in the 'States! Even regular price you can find them for around $70 US.

    I really didn't expect to find a clearance one anyway, but I was surprised that there weren't ANY - clearance or otherwise.

    Guess it just gives me an excuse to go down again sometime.
