Brands for Bargains opens in Bristol, Pa.

Friday, June 08, 2012

Brands for Bargains is a new consignment department store that opened just a couple of weeks ago in Bristol, Pa.

"It's just like anything you find here, you can find a department store at the mall, only it's cheaper," explains Brands for Bargains employee Amanda Swinehart. "It's just with the economy today, this is where you want to shop."

In sporting goods, we found new Under Armour cleats for $26. In housewares, lighting fixtures were priced at $25 for a chandelier and $11.75 for new-in-the-box ceiling mounts.

In toys, new-in-the-box board games were about $6 each. And there's also furniture and baby gear.

But by far, the biggest selection is in clothes.

Among the children's clothes -- all new with tags -- a Gap dress that was $26.50 for $10.50 and adorable cupcake sunsuit that was $20 for $9.50.

And off-season merchandise is even less expensive. We found a girl's coat from The Children's Place for less than $9 and a boy's Nautica snow jacket for $3.75. Both were in near-new condition.

There's a whole rack of teen clothing -- with jeans from American Eagle for $13.75 and tops from stores like Abercrombie and Hollister.

And each week, items with certain colored price tags are an additional 25% or 50% off.
