Liqudation Diary: Borders Dry Goods and Sundries, Now Open For Business

At Borders we sell many fine products. Here are just a few of the dozens of exciting new items you can find here.

Located in the aisle that formerly housed books on Health and Beauty you can find inexpensive perfumes to suit your every mood. 

Leaving that aisle you will come immediately upon a display of slippers with gripper soles. Grip it good, we say with a chuckle.

Let's pay a visit to the Kids section. Once upon a time there were books here. But now you can find blankets of all descriptions to wrap baby in while you watch TV with her or dandle her on your knee as you play Angry Birds.

Ah, here we have the Travel section. Appropriately enough, the blankets are made of microsherpa (which we hope isn't made from the skin of actual sherpas, because that would be, well, kind of Silence of the Lambs and all).

Although Manga books may well be my least favorite in the store, still, I liked it when there were at least a few books there.

Kind of like one of those houses that realtors say have a "peek-a-boo" view, if you stand on your tip-toes and crane your neck you might be able to see some books from this area.

Well lookie here. At the front and back end of the Fiction section, backpacks. Lots and lots of backpacks. But hey--there are still a few books!

I have nothing to say about the waist trimmer. Absolutely nothing.

We're seriously proud of the new product lines we're carrying. Here, Tom and Amanda show their enthusiasm for a three-dimensional foam super-hero, ah, thing.

I feel for you, I really do. It must be hard to see all that junk in place of lovely ,lovely books.

Those backpacks ROCK, Becky! Check out Borders going REI! I could use me a new day pack, actually, to carry all my books around on my hikes. Thanks for letting us know.
