Visiting Bargain World near Sand Lake Road in Orlando Florida USA

Filed Under (Florida, Orlando, Shopping, Travelling, USA, World Souvenirs) by Janet on 10-02-2009


I’m now travelling in the I-Ride Trolley on my way back to International Drive from my Shopping at the Orlando Premium Outlets – looking at views of serene & charming rivers & trees :

About 45 mins later, I’m back at the main stretch of International Drive where there’re many Tourits Shops & Attractions such as the following Upside-Down WonderWorks - created to look like a Building uprooted by a Tornado & Planted upside down – an Amusement Science Centre for the Mind, featuring over 100 Interactive Exhibits for visitors of all ages :

I’ve now just got off the I-Ride Trolley at Red Line North Bound Stop 18 cos I wana check out the Shops across the road as I’ve noticed them this morning when I was riding the Trolley to Orlando Premium Outlets………..

As you know, I love Palm Trees & here’s a pic of the extremely tall slim types at International Drive :

I’m now approaching a small Supermarket to see what might be in there – upon which I spend some time browsing through its Tourist Souvenirs & T-shirts :

Shortly afterwards, I leave the Supermarket to walk towards Quality Inn International (located at Trolley Stop 15) - passing by the I-Ride TrolleyRed Line South Bound - Stop 17 – the time now is around 5 pm & as usual, it’s very quiet except for some passing-by vehicles, & there aren’t many people around as I’ve observed in my last 2 days of Shopping Spree here in Orlando :

Below pic shows Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Museum hidden behind charming Floridian Palm Trees across the road :

I’m now walking past Jamaican Court at International Drive where there’re several Hotels & Resorts :

Interestingly, here’re some very cool Traffic Lights Instructions which are specifically detailed & helpful to foreigners like myself which can come pretty handy for us when crossing roads :

Heheh, I’ve now arrived at the real fun Shopping area which I’ve long noticed since Dear & I approached Quality Inn International from the Aiprort on our very first night here in Orlando Florida USA :

Hey I notice there’re several Restaurants with interesting Sports names such as Best of British Soccer World Sports Bar & Grill which I saw earlier located beside the Supermarket, & here again the following TGI Friday’s Front Row Sports Grill Restaurant - the locals here must be loving Sports really much :

Notice the BasketBall & Football placed at both sides of the Restaurant’s Rooftop – really cute ha!?! :

Haha Haha Im really excited as I walk quickly towards my 2nd “Shopping Spree” of today – as supposedly so I thought…………..

Bargain World at International Drive in Orlando Florida USA

YES Yes of course I’m talking about BARGAIN WORLD - located by the side of Sand Lake Road across the World’s Largest Mcdonald’s & Quality Inn International - & probably the biggest one here among several others that I’ve seen along International Drive :Bargain World at International Drive in Orlando Florida USA

And I go like “Whoa WHOA!!” as I enter Bargain World - feeling astonished that this place’s really huge & it’s 2-storey too – & wishing Dear’s here with me right now!!

I immediately go ‘crazy‘ for a while feeling how lucky I am to be standing inside here right now as I start browsing through Souvenir Magnets, T-shirts, Disney Toys, Shoes & many many others – all at pretty reasonable prices - at sales of up to 75% off for some :

This place has pretty cool decorations – just look at the below Road Signboard with Streets & Tourist Attractions names that can actually be found here in Orlando Florida USA :

And here’s another really enticing Golden Alligator right in the middle of Bargain World :

As I finish walking through the massive 2-storey Store – I realise there’s nothing much that I wana buy from here cos the items are mostly China made, some with pretty bad qualities - & many I’d already seen in other Souvenir Shops in my last 2 days of Shopping Sprees at International Drive :

However girls being girls – & a Shopaholic like ME – I can’t help but ”MUST” buy some things so I foot my bill for them…………. & that’s when I come across this following ”MISSING Girl Information” tagged on the Donation Box at the Cashier Counter :

Missing Girl Information inside Bargain World at International Drive in Orlando Florida USA

It’s very sad that there’ve been so many Missing Children cases here in America – I remember I used to frequently watch the local TV news of Kidnapped & Missing Children (abducted daily) while I was travelling here in the States with my family back in 1992…………

Highlights of the MISSING Girl – if any of you happen to see her, please contact 1-888-CHILDWATCH immediately – in the meantime, lets all pray that she’s in safe hands :

My Boxes of Florida’s Finest Coconut Patties  – YES COCONUT indeed!! I’m delighted to see there’re tropical fruits here like Coconuts which are hot favourites of Asian people :

There’re actually more flavours than just the Original & Key Lime ones that I just bought which Bargain World has got left :

Individually packed Square pieces of Florida’s Finest Original Flavoured Coconut Patties which are dipped in Chocolates – very fresh & really tasty :

Below are Individually packed Square pieces of Florida’s Finest Key Lime Flavoured Coconut Patties – according to an Indian American employee (but I think he’s more like one of the Bosses here) inside Bargain World - Key Lime comes from Key West which is a most beautiful Paradise Island where he’s visited on a Cruise!!

And he so proudly tells me about his very expensive yet very worthy “Key West Cruise“, while introducing me to the Key Lime Flavoured Coconut Patties which he says are really fantastic :

Haha the Indian Americans here are really friendly who like chatting with me just like earlier when I was looking at Souvenir Magnets, an older Indian employee starts telling me that he’s from Bangladesh & that he came here & got his Green Card with the help of his sister-in-law………..

I tell him that he’s really very fortunate to be staying here cos it’s such a beautiful place – & he totally agrees saying he likes it here alot cos his kids get to go to school free & etc, making me feel really happy for him!!

Well, here’re my Boxes of Florida Salt Taffy for my neighbours back home in Singapore :

WOW these Florida Salt Water Taffy are even more colorful than the ones I bought yesterday from Gift Outlet at International Drive - & they’re so yummy yummy I’m sure my neighbour kids will enjoy them lots :

I’ve so much fun shopping inside Bargain World & by the time I step out of the place the sky is dark – & though I was told (by Mom & Godmom, & Dear of course who’s very protective of me!!) not to be out alone too late here in Orlando, I don feel the least afraid at all now, though as usual there aren’t many people around everywhere I’ve been in my past 2 days!!

Bargain World at International Drive in Orlando Florida USA

No problem at all even when the sky’s already dark now cos so far I feel that Orlando is really safe – or at least I’ve always been around Tourist places so there’s really nothing to fear so long as I’m careful!!

And I’m not about to rush back to my Hotel now that it’s dark but to continue shopping next-door heheh……………now let’s watch my following Slideshow, as well as its attached Song Video which is really interesting & fun :

    Hello there, I discovered your web site via Google at the same time as looking for a related matter, your web site came up, it looks great. I have bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.

    of course like your web-site but you need to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very troublesome to inform the reality however I will certainly come again again.

    submit used to be great. I do not know who you are but definitely you’re going to a well-known blogger in case you are not already.
    Cheers!
