If you're in need of cheap SPD (St. Patrick’s Day) gear, you don’t have to look too far. Local stores are stocked up with cheap buys, trying to push their lowly winter sales upward.
One major department store seems to offer way more SPD items than their competition. Target has an isle full of cheap trinkets and clothing priced between $1-5, including green beads, shirts, socks and hats. I just picked up a green shirt last night for $5 ... can't beat that. Their online selection is ridiculously versatile, ranging from leprechaun costumes, to flasks, to light up buttons.
Another store with cheap gear is Five and Below. You'll find their shelves stacked with SPD temporary tattoos, bracelets, freezable pilsner glasses, beads, and shot glasses (they do not have an online store).
With SPD a little less than a week away, ordering online is still an option (with rush shipping). Here are a couple sites with reasonably priced unique stuff, from customizable shirts to guarder belts.
Wear Your Beer:
Koozies, lanyards, hoodies, and fitted t-shirts.
Shirts, hats, buttons, and mugs.
Just Irish Stuff:
Sunglasses, umbrellas, suspenders, guarder belts, bow ties and tiaras.
