When I first visited Big Lots I was very disappointed. To me it seemed like nothing but junk. The other day I had to visit a store right next to Big Lots. My daughter wanted to go in. I had reservations but thought what the heck. Well, I found the most adorable beaded candles for $1.99 and $2.99 unlike the ones from At Home America (the exact candles ) for $10.99 and $12.99!! In my opinion, this store is hit or miss. Best to give it a chance and go frequently as the inventory changes very quickly.
