Party Supplies Party Part 2

When it rains it pours is an odd expression...
But it's very fitting for the Sonic Party Supplies currently. For YEARS and YEARS they were the most wanted, most asked for thing Gear ever saw, and there were none around. Now, there are bucketloads of them from all around. Now that Party City & Wal Mart have joined the 'party' the update is swimming in the things. Plates, cups and decor galore are all around the update. There's something like 22 things in JUST that 1 section new this week. Certainly 'complete coverage' is what SonicGear is all about.
These things are great to see but there's some advice too:
Stock up if you want it. All this stuff is really cheap, I mean like .99 cent cheap and a buck here or there cheap. Anyone can afford it. It's also disposable goods, so not a lot of people are going to hoard it. A lot of people just assume everything that's out now will be out forever. But party supplies usually seem to have 2 - 3 year cycles, if not shorter. Sure new stuff might appear, but you want the current stuff too? The only real excuse against it is not having the space, or not wanting to buy online/no store near you. Since the cycle is long (certainly longer than shirts etc) you can even buy slowly if you have to. But getting these mostly nicely designed party supplies is a great way to build a collection without spending a lot of money, as these are some of the cheapest Sonic goods ever made.
Cone hats:
Who decided that everyone should put paper cones on their head at a party? What does this do? Why is it so similar to a 'dunce cap'? Yes, there's another round of Sonic themed paper hats on the post, but I've always found these curious & odd.
Favorite thing: Confetti. So fun!
Obviously...the party supplies ate up all the time available for this update.
So there will need to be a 2nd one for this week to clear out the mail. A lot more things than this came in and they've all got to go on. Also the mystery of the dissappearing thong has not been solved, so it'll simply return to bootlegs.
