When wandering the aisles of Mardens looking for items for this blog (or any other time, really) I'm often confronted with the same question.  Whether it is in ladies clothing, shoes, toys... and especially in the questionable foods section, the question remains the same - "But - WHY?!".

 I'm all about this toy - looks like a blast...but can we have a conversation about that tag line?

When you're ready to play dirty?

Do you think the marketing interns had a bet to see what they could sneak by the execs?  I hope someone won some cash, or a bucket of chicken wings or something...

Speaking of marketing - check out this amazing sign from the crack team at Mardens. Don't know what to get?  Yep.  Still don't, but thanks.
 Another gem for the marketing files - Look, I get it. It's a cover that just goes over the top of the grill...but why bikini?  Do they think it's sexy?  I know nothing get's me going like a grill with a nice tight top....

 All about the Benjamins (and Grants)?  only have $6? - well, problem solved.  Buy this shirt and you'll feel like...well, probably like 6 bucks.  Say it with me now, BUT WHY?!
 Look.  I like Guy Fieri as much as the next chubby chick who likes burgers - but come on...I suppose if I were bald and wanted to look like a middle aged frat guy on a budget, I'd go this route - otherwise, WHY?

 Cute lion...I kinda love the part down the middle...but the bedazzled mustache?  Also it's only about 1.5 inches tall...I bet some adorable little memere has a cute little curio with an entire bedazzled jungle just waiting for her king...I hope she finds you, little buddy!
 These are "good" until 2019....yeah, doubtful.

Thanks for tuning in for another episode of Ugly Crap I Found at Mardens!  This is our opinion, we welcome yours!

Your Metallic Shoe Headquarters

Hey everyone! Erin-Margaret here - Sarah and I once shared an apartment at UMaine, who knew we also shared a love for Maine's eclectic superstore?!  This morning I needed some thread and some fabric for a quilt I am working on, and Marden's is the BEST place for quilting supplies - so off I went.  I found several gems today - here are a few:

 Need a little more luster in your life?  Look no further.

 This lovely pair of silver-toned moon boots bring a feeling of nostalgia that has me looking for country kitchen bags to wear over my feet and the nearest sledding hill.  If you're looking for durability, these boots look like they have about as much as the original moon boots from the 80's..approximately 20 minutes.

If you're into luxury - check these babies out.  The loafer/mule design, the "rose gold" color, the FUR..Not sure where to begin here.  Need a little extra warmth and comfort for your C3PO costume?  Want to feel like you're kicking around Trump Tower or the "Winter White House"?  Slip your tired dogs into this luxurious faux fur and step out!  All for the low, low price of $13.99!

Actually...It is.
Do you love Awkward Family Photos AND puzzles?  Well, check this out - satisfy both needs in one with this 999 piece puzzle!  Nothing says family fun time like building a puzzle of other people and their pets...
