Random crap for sale at Borders going-out-of-business sale

I stopped by Borders yesterday to see if there was anything worth picking up at their going-out-of-business sale, and couldn't help but notice the abundance of crap being purveyed as part of their going-out-of-business sale. I wonder if it's common practice to try and make an extra buck from bargain seekers by placing tables of random stuff that was never even sold at a store in the first place. Perhaps the thinking is that people are more likely to add to their purchases (the good deals they sought out in the first place) if they are convinced that these other items are also a good deal, even if they really don't need them. Of course, that's the nature of impulse shopping!
Who knew Borders specialized in fluffy blankets?!
...as well as beach totes, duffle bags...and more blankets!
Piggy banks! Yes, I need one of those right now.
As if there weren't enough blankets!!! And at 30% off... what a deal!
Don't forget.......... fragrances!
