Sorority Symbols...I see them everywhere!

I was at HomeGoods/TJ Maxx this afternoon and saw a plethora of items with kites, anchors, pandas, arrows, sailboats, penguins, turtles, giraffes, etc. These were not in the children's section! Anyone else seeing things like this? I'm not sure if I'm hyper-aware because it's rec writing season or if there really are more symbolic/mascot type items available.

I saw little squirrel shaped lip glosses by the checkout at Joann's today. My mind immediately screamed "alpha gam!"

I seem to personally be on an anchor kick. My mom and dad gave me an Alex and Ani bracelet with an anchor. My daughter gave me flip flops with anchors, and I picked up a tote bag with an anchor. All in a span of a few weeks. I guess I'm celebrating my inner DG (although I'm ASA all the way).

Me too! The other day someone on FB re-posted some scammy “Win a Free Carnival Cruise” thing, which supposedly included a cruise, t-shirts, and a gift bag. The photo was of a bunch of paper gift bags lined up on a table with cut-out anchors ribbon-tied to the handles. My first thought was “I think that photo’s probably stolen from some Delta Gamma (or AST, even) Bid Day Pinterest page.”

Di - it's a great time to be finding anchors (for DG and AST). Lots of summer sales.

Kites? really? will go check this week!

Y'all need to let me know if you stumble across anything compass-y. I'm not about the penguin life.

Jackpot! One of the necklaces even comes with a pearl and a gem, with a sapphire option. Perfection. Gratzi!
