Default Ocean State Job Lot

I just received an email that Ocean State has 20% off everything in the store from Sept. 20th-26th. You might be able to get some good deals!

Thumbs up The North-Side's Version of "Wal-Mart"...

Directions for those of us on the Ocean-State-Job-Lot side of the Lake

From Pickering Corner (just east of the yellow Pickering House) head North (Route 109 South) .

Staying with Rt. 28, head North about 8 miles—to Ossipee's Rt 16—and opposite Rite Aid—it'll appear on your right, next to Hannaford Market, with a gas station adjacent—within a huge parking lot.

Ocean State has a big selection of pool products, tarps, birdseed, kayak paddles, eyewear, carpeting, seasonal clothing, tent/camping/outdoors products, rope, kitchen- and electrical- accessories, plus an assortment of interesting / discounted foods. A shopper can spend an hour—easily. (Especially when it's cold, windy, and rainy—like today's forecast!)

That they have a big monthly changeovers always makes for interesting shopping.

Default A hidden gem for gardeners.....

If heading up to the Ossipee OSJL, just before you reach Rt. 16, there is a hidden gem on the left called the Sias Farm Garden Center. Wonderful selection and a whole grove of shade-loving plants. Currently everything is 25% off!!!! Fall is a great time for planting

There's the Sunset Mattress Company on the left—a dirt road leads to the office and "factory".

You can watch your mattress being finished—in the sun—while you wait.

I thought so much of the four mattresses we bought in 1956—and still enjoy—I bought one to load in my pickup and drove it to Florida!

One of our renters thought so much of one of our Sunset mattresses, he took it with him!

For $500 the Meredith OSJL had a very nice, bright yellow, stand up paddle boad, big enough to support a 220-lb person standing up, and it took them two summers, '17 & '18, to sell it off. Couldn't sell it over the winter despite $200 offer in crazy cash, OSJL mdse promo or something?

Well ....... this weekend, Sept 21 and 22, the EKAL Activity Center next to the Town Docks Restaurant on Meredith Bay is having a stand up paddle board and kayak sell-off, starting at $200, to unload their large assortment of rental vessels.

Go to craigslist-nh-boats to check it out. For $200, you can get a sup very similar to what OSJL was selling for $500.

Do a search for 'Meredith ekal', two ads with some good photos, from Sept 5 and Sept 14, for a used rental sup or kayak.
