    Happy Martin Luther King Day!

    I've been hitting the 90% off Christmas Clearance sales (K-Mart went 90% off today), and I am looking for chicken and rooster things-- ornaments, Christmas cards with chooks on them, chicken wrapping paper, etc.

    Has anyone seen any anywhere?

    Sears Grand has cute rooster ornaments.

    Rite-Aid has a cute Christmas card with a Christmas tree decorated with rooster ornaments on it.

    Anyone seen anything else of this nature, or am I posting this in the wrong forum? I considered "Hobbies," but I didn't think that quite fit, except I guess it could be seen as collecting chickens, so Mods, if you think this would be better there, please feel free to move it there.

    All tips as to on-sale chicken items will be appreciated.

    Our hobby lobby had some chicken ornaments and always carries rooster decor, which is sometimes 50% off.

    Hobby Lobby has some. I've seen some at Cost Plus World Market, too.

    Another place to check out is Bronner's Christmas Wonderland. I'm a Michigander, so I can drive there (it's my once-a-year Black Friday tradition), but they also have a website. http://www.bronners.com/

    Maybe next December I'll do a thread about my chicken ornament collection. I have a LOT. Our Christmas tree has more roosters on it than Santas and angels. Hee hee. [​IMG]

    Here are a few of mine (plus some random ones)... I think I took this picture a couple of years ago.

    How fun! Those are so cute! I went to Sears Grand today to get the rooster ornament, but he had already sold. Darn!

    Then I found a pretty cardinal, the last one left, and wouldn't you know I managed to drop it and it broke into a million pieces. I felt so bad!

    I hadn't thought of Hobby Lobby or World Market. Great to know!

    Sears Grand has the prettiest "Country Living" brand red rooster ribbon on Christmas clearance. It's a velvety ribbon with embossed raised roosters on it, in their holiday clearance. Fun find!
