I have had my eye on a Dooney & Bourke handbag for quite some time. It was $400+ in most stores. While I liked the purse, I did not like it that much. I was shocked to not only find the exact same Dooney & Bourke purse in T J Maxx, but to find it at 50% off retail! It was marked $199.00! I snatched it up right away. I told my husband that it was his birthday gift to me. He was happy to have avoided shopping for me. I was thrilled to get a new purse. I never expected T J Maxx to carry it. I now try to stop there at least every other week. I continue to find great brand name merchandise there. T J Maxx has become one of my favorite stores.
