Thanks to our blog bud JRS over at Red Clay Soul, I was able to snag some great looking watch bands on the cheap at American Eagle Outfitters. The last time I bought one was last summer at J. Press and I paid $25 for it (from Smart Turnout). But these were $3.95 each. I paid $25 for 8 of them (one rang up at $1.95). I think they're pretty cool. They add color and contrast to your wrist and whatever shirt and jacket you're wearing.
After a few months of wearing a favorite, I find I need to wash it. I put the band in a plastic container, add warmish/hot water and a couple of drops of laundry detergent, make a few suds and let it sit for a day, then let it air dry on a towel somewhere.
Would you look at those gas prices!!! We really need to get back to something reasonable. This whole Libya things has got the oil and gas biz upside down.
