Interesting find at Big Lots (Suave)

I wonder how long it takes for a discontinued product to finally be kaput? Last week at Big Lots they still have the Suave Professional Firm Hold Gel (like Biolage Gelee) that was so popular a year or two ago. I don't mean a tube or three .. but 15 tubes :shock:! I was tempted to grab them up and offer them on the Swap Board, but I know once a product is discontinued, it's better to try to find a replacement than have to deal with it once it's gone for good. But boy I was tempted :lol: !

    I found a bunch a while back, and offered some up on the swap board, but they haven't moved yet. Probably good you only bought what you could use. I might be stuck with more than I can use in the next 5 years! :lol:

    Sometimes when I swap/sell stuff I can't remember who I transacted with, but I remember you buying what I had left of this stuff when it was discontinued.

    CurliLocks - I remember seeing that you had some for sale and they hadn't sold. Which is also what I remembered when I was looking at all those tubes, debating :lol: .

    tinycurlyd - 21 tubes?!? :shock: :lol:
