I'm still waiting for Walmart to roll out it's Fall/Christmas stuff...(I know Walmart usually won't put out the Christmas stuff till after Labor Day - but I kinda expected to see the Fall stuff by now).

Having said that, I was in there yesterday, and they had a sale (which lasted 30 minutes only) that gave HUGE discounts to summer items in the Lawn and Garden section. So that tells me they're trying to make room for the incoming Fall items...

So yeah, that was kinda exciting (for me anyway).

Christmas cards, gift bags and wrapping paper at 'Cardfactory' in Glasgow! I went for my university interview today and popped in at one of 'Cardfactory' shops in the centre afterwards and vuolia, a whole section of lovely Christmas stuff! At first, I found it funny and strange but later on, I thought 'Yay! So cool!'. I haven't spotted these things at 'Cardfactory' in the town I live - I suppose mainly because it's a way smaller than Glasgow, but the city is definitely getting ready for the season. ^^

I came upon a Christmas magazine in the "Seasonal" rack at a grocery store in Aurora, Colorado. Sorry, I did not have my phone on me in the US, so no photos!
