What it is: This was a recommendation from a member of Durham Mothers Club. She said that it was perfect for stocking stuffers. When we were finally able to check it out we realized that she was definitely right. Five Below is a store that opened fairly recently in the New Hope Commons shopping center off of 15-501. Everything in the store is under $5. They sell all manner of items, like seasonal decorations and candy, clothing, games, movies, sports equipment, etc. It was just a great place to look around to see what they have.
What we liked: I loved how many fun kids items there were here. I bought a couple of items for my son's summer birthday when I was there last week, and I will probably come back when closer to the actual day. It is also a great place to fill Easter baskets, stockings, etc. I can also see this being fun for a kid to come and pick out a treat themselves or for teachers to come and pick out some student gifts.
What we would change: There are so many different kind of things that you can always find several more things to spend money on as you're making your way to the register.
