Italian Dollar Store – Negozio di 70 centesimi

16 Jun


“Thousands of things for a half euro” — the equivalent of about 70 cents by today’s calculation. So I suppose you could call it the Italian 70 cents store. Even though most of the prices in there were more than “mezzo euro” anyways. I’m sure that Hello Kitty thing-a-ma-bob isn’t 50 euro cents! But maybe the random red Converse shoe whateveritis costs mezzo euro. Or maybe one of those oversized chess piece thingys next to the enormous dice. Wow, lots of randomness going on at the Italian 70 cents store. Good stuff.

In america abbiamo il “dollar store” cioe’ il negozio di un dollaro, in cui veramente la roba costa quasi tutto solo un dollaro. Questi posti da “mezz’euro” sono forse l’equivalente italiana. Solo che mezz’euro sono 70 centesimi americani. Quindi sarebbe il “negozio di 70 centesimi,” che poi alla fine non suona cosi’ bene. Pero’ chissenefrega, perche’ abbiamo tutti bisogno di negozi cosi’, guardate un po’ la roba in vendita! Ragazzi! Lo so che e’ tutta la vita che stavate cercando pezzi super giganteschi da scacchi! No? E allora, una scarpa rossa Converse che ha come funzione assolutamentenonhonessunidea?? Ore e ore di divertimento qui dentro, sicuro.

    Great for the “secret Santa” or grab bag the kids have at school, or while elephant parties!

    I know. It’s all a ploy to get you inside to buy the oversized chess pieces. Resist, resist!!
