The American Science and Surplus annual warehouse sale is coming soon. Mark your calendar for September 8 and 9, 2012 and head to 7410 North Lehigh Avenue in Niles, Illinois if you're in the market for LEDs, old greeting cards, out-of-date military gear, and other flotsam and jetsam.
The goods really run the gamut at this sale, but for $20 or less you'll have a fun time* (if you like searching out a diamond in the rough as much as I do) and you're sure to find an item (or 6) that you never knew you needed. Don't miss out!
If you enjoy a little more order in your life, stop by the actual store at 5316 N. Milwaukee in Chicago, which is not far from the warehouse.
Thanks to the folks at Chicago Parent, I learned that the always interesting store is going to take it to the next level with live demonstrations and activities the evening of August 31, 2012.
According to the AS&S site, there will also be a telescope workshop from 6-7, a microscope workshop from 7-8 and viewing from 8-10. Bring this coupon to get a special bonus (with purchase) for the kiddos.
*Round off your experience with a stop at the deliciously quirky Chocolate Shoppe ice cream parlor just a couple miles south of the warehouse.
