I still have folks asking me about the store that opened last November called It’s $5, located on North Jesse James Road in the old Excelsior Trade Fair building. Yesterday, I spoke with Felecia Cole, the owner of the business, and she said she still has people coming in the store who say they had no idea it was here! So I thought I would put together a compilation of some of the things that I often see that are available, in case you haven’t yet been in to visit!
1. Rock Salt Lamps
You may have to get a light to go under so it glows, but for $5 or less, the Rock Salt lamp makes a cool addition to your house or workspace!
2. Cell Phone Accessories
There are literally thousands of phone accessories in these two bins, something for every cell phone owner.
3. Cell Phone Bracket Holder for Vehicle
These just suction onto your windshield and you can clip your phone in. I find it handy when I don’t know where I’m going and am following directions, making it easy to glance over and still keep two hands on the wheel.
4. Sofa, Loveseat, and Chair Covers
If you need a new look for your sofa, loveseat, or chair, this is your place! All different kinds of colors, styles, and sizes. There are also window curtains and shower curtains, too! My friend found rugs for all her bathrooms for $2.50 each one day!
5. Party Supplies
When it comes to throwing a party, It’s $5 has all you would need! You can usually find balloons, fairy lights, and holiday novelty items of all kinds. There are also photo backdrops, invitation/thank you cards, and kids themed birthday goodie bag accessories.
If you could use a new backpack, for $5 you can usually find some nice, high quality backpacks and bags. My husband found me a great work bag for only $2.50 and I use it everyday.
7. Baby Items
You can find all kinds of cute towels, kids clothes, and baby items. There are changing pads, accessories for mothers that are breast feeding, and diaper bags. Good stuff for a lot less! Great for baby showers!
8. Picture Frames
Lots of nice picture frames in all sizes can be found there, too!
9. Office Supplies
For teachers and office workers, there are all kinds of office supplies that can be found at the It’s $5! A great time to go would be on Wednesday or Thursday when items are as low as fifty cents!
10. Lamps and Lightbulbs
Add some light to your office or home space with lamps of all kinds! There are also tons of LED lightbulbs that will last a long time!
11. Man Gifts
I saw almost every guy in the store carrying around one of these cap brackets to clean your hats in your dishwasher! If you’re looking for something for a man, you can find all kinds of things. There are also footballs, playing card shufflers, exercise equipment, and tools!
