    Now no bath mats

    In another thread, I mentioned not being about to find saucers at the local Kmart or Walmart. Now it's bath mats that have gone extinct.

    I grew up with the kind of bath mat that is made of the same material as a towel except that it's thicker. It isn't a rug. It isn't a mat woven of tube-like pieces of material.

    I still have some of these old fashioned bath mats that I got less than 10 years ago. But when I went looking for such a thing at the local Kmart and Walmart, there were none. I spoke to a young Walmart employee about them and she didn't understand what I was talking about.

    I know the exact mat you speak of, have two of them. I'll ask the wife if she remembers where they came from. In the mean time, do you have a Kohl's to check?

    Don't know if it will help, but the tag on these have the name Kaufman on them.

    I think so. I'll look at the store I think might be Kohl's - but only because it's across the parking lot from Lowes Hardware.

    Try Bed, Bath, and Beyond online. I think I remember seeing them in the store. World Market also sells them, but I try not to buy from them (though sometimes I can't resist the coffee).

    Well, you didn't specify a price point. They should last a good while unless you decide to change your color scheme.

    Walmart carries them for around $20 a two pack. Don't know the quality, but sound okay.

    Walmart online? As I said, the local Walmart didn't have any.

    Here's another item: I went to the local Target store to get an electric tea kettle. They had a whole shelf of different colors of the same model of non-electric Kitchenaid tea kettle. They had one model of electric coffee percolator. They had no electric tea kettles.

    ( I shoud add that Target did have a few saucers.)

    Sorry, I should of said it was Walmart online. As little selection that I find of most things in stores I usually shop online for variety.
