Karl Lohnes' Buying Guide : January & February
  • air conditioners (because it’s cold out. you don’t buy an umbrella when it’s pouring rain)
  • appliances (last year models and showroom models)
  • winter coats (buy in florida or arizona when you’re on vacation!)
  • furniture (cleaning out floor models for spring collections)
  • carpeting (wall to wall – most people don’t think of having it done in the winter but it’s less busy for the stores)
  • bedding (started years ago because of the “white sale”)
  • bath linens (same as above)
  • contracting services (there is less construction work going on, so a good time to call them for random tasks)


February
  • window treatments (most people think they need window coverings in the summer, but you actually need more cover in the winter when the trees are bare). 
  • jewelry (in conjunction with valentines day)
  • swimsuits & cruisewear (end of everyone going on vacation)
  • sports equipment (end of ski season coming)
  • cold weather clothing (as above)
