Holiday Sale Blends Bounty with Bargains

With money as tight as is it, we all need to spend wisely to stretch our dollars during the upcoming holiday gift-giving season. But frugal doesn't have to mean cheap. That creative "just right" gift idea (found at the right price) will bring smiles to the faces of recipients and gift-givers alike! That's where the Rhode Island PBS Holiday Sale steps in.

WSBE Rhode Island PBS – RI's viewer-supported public television station – will open its studios November 16 through 20 for a sale of rare (limited quantity) and one-of-a-kind items, offered at a fraction of their retail value.

The variety of items is wide, but quantities are limited. DVDs, VHS tapes, CDs, and audio cassettes of PBS programs feature a variety of subjects, including self-help, finance, lifestyle, inspiration, and humor. Music artists include PBS favorites Andrea Bocelli, Chris Botti, Daniel O'Donnell, Lawrence Welk, and Bruce Springsteen (yes, Bruce Springsteen). Those names alone should provide a pretty clear indication of the wide range of music to suit almost anyone's taste - even the toughest person on your gift list.

Books, books, books! They cover an array of subjects and include some companion books to popular PBS specials.

There are also some children's videos, Ciao Italia cookbooks, gift certificates, and holiday items.

Perhaps the most intriguing items are the unclaimed auction goods and works of art. It's an opportunity to pick up unique items at a bargain price.
