Hi everyone! Sorry I was MIA for awhile, was on small vacation trips and working a lot! Now I'll try to blog a few times a week! I still have lots of Hello Kitty to showcase off!
I recently went to Portland for a family trip, and I found myself taking lots of pictures of Hello Kitty! In Washington Square they have a Sanrio store, which I found last summer, and every time I go, I try to emphasize to the saleperson that I'm from out of town and that I loveeeeee Hello Kitty! So, if I persist enough, they usually give me this gift (that's supposed to be with $50 purchase) or a gift bag with small goodies! This time I got 2 pink satin Hello Kitty Bags! All I bought there was a pencil and a Hello Kitty charm with my year of birth engraved in the back! That's pretty sentimental :)

|There was a Vans store and they were carrying their new hello kitty line!|
The University of Oregon had merchandise stores in the various malls we went to, and to my surprise... they had Hello Kitty Shirts! Now these are REAL Oregon souvenirs! I wanted to buy ALL OF THEM! but they were pricey. $28 a shirt.... I got really good deals from Hot Topic that I'll mention after these:
At Macy's they had a whole kid section of Hello Kitty Clothing!
Now on to the deals at Hot Topic. So Hot Topic was having a "Hot Mess Clearance Sale" so they had old tees and merchandise for $10 or less! The new stuff were on sale too, but those were just buy one get one half off. Anyways I took the time to look through the many boxes of clearance items and circle racks of tees to find... only 2 $5 Hello Kitty tees left! There were also others like the Hello Kitty earmuffs and a change purse, but I already have the earmuffs and the change purse was dirty. Oh I also got 1 beach towel and a beach towel poncho! Those were $10 each! What a deal!
The one on the right is a 50th anniversary tee! Finally! Something with Keroppi! As a child, I've always had a secret love for Keroppi <3
Now I have 2 Hello Kitty Towels and a super cute Poncho!
Well that is all I have now, but if you every get a chance to go down to Portland, head over to Washington Square Mall for the Ducks store, Sanrio store, and Hot Topic! There's also a Spencer's right beside the Sanrio store, there's always interesting stuff in there ;)
There was also a few Hello Kitty merchandise stores in Clackamas Town Center plus another Hot Topic!
That's all for now! Have a great Wednesday everyone and enjoy the awesome summer weather!
