          Even though I have OOT bags, I tried cause I really wanted some. They only had red with blue stars and some purple design ones. I might look at another Wal-mart cause I really like them for 88 cents!

          Dominiqueamber - you definitely should.  I called around to all my area Walmart stores - I was told to ask for the Jewelry Dept...I guess they oversee the handbag dept...anyway I was able to round up 46 of them...I figure any extras I can use as grocery bags for myself or use as gift bags down the road.  GOOD LUCK!

            So when you called you just asked for the 88 cent tote bags with the anchor pattern? I thought I'd need to have one so they could look up the sku number

            Oddly, when I first starting calling around, they said that they could not look up by SKU # which I thought was absolutely RIDICULOUS!  I even tried looking for them online that way - no such luck.

             

            I just called - asked for Handbag Dept and they sent me to Jewelry.  I told them I was looking for a recycled bag I saw in the Handbag Dept hanging on the wall.  It was Navy Blue with White Anchors...marked for .88 cents.  Some found them right away - some seemed clueless!  For instance, one store said they did not have them (I think they were too lazy to really look).  My sister-in-law went into that same store that evening and found 3-4 bags for me!!!!!!!!!!!  My BFF helped me by having some of her co-workers who lived in out of the way towns - check their Walmart for me.  That's how I got an extra 6 bags!  I've been shopping everything based on an estimate of 40 bags needed.  (1 per couple)

             

            Apparently Walmart will not "HOLD" anything for you, but I was able to sweet talk some of stores!  I just explained my story of welcome bags for a Destination Wedding I was having....a few were like, oh such a nice idea!!!!

             

            (Nuts buying for 40 with a year to go until the wedding, but my estimate list is close to that - so it is helping me make progress with the OOT bag items.  Any leftover items - some I can return - some I will use - and some I can always sell on here, right?)

              Oh dang! I wish I had read this one before I bought my anchor bags from old navy. They are cute but 1.00 each, and every little penny counts! Brilliant find! Have you received any of your anchor vista print items yet? I would love to see a pic of the finished product? I keep hearing all these great things about VP deals, but frankly I got a little overwhelmed clicking through their website and didn't see all these deals people have mentioned.
