CLEARANCE - Bob's Bargain Basement

CLEARANCE - Bob's Bargain Basement

Everyone Loves a Deal.


If you're like me, you probably enjoy cruising through the "clearance" aisle at your local superstore, never quite knowing what you might find - 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, manufacturer demos, and more. For some items, we may have a whole bunch of them - others we might only have one.

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

Please note that many items sold through the Bargain Basement may be considered "all sales final."
