CLEARANCE

Everyone Loves a Deal.

Vintage-look graphic of a happy guy with a sack of cashIf you're like me, you probably enjoy cruising through the "clearance" aisle at your local superstore, never quite knowing what you might come across - but hoping that you find something unique, interesting, and cheap. In that spirit, I offer "Bob's Bargain Basement!" ...Where you can find all manner of odds and ends; discontinued products, inexpensive take-off strings, slightly used products, B-stocks, manufacturer demos, and more. For some items, we may have a whole bunch of them - for others we might only have one.

So act fast! Something you see here today might be gone tomorrow.

Please note that items bought here in the Bargain Basement are considered "all sales final" unless otherwise noted.
