This store is a 99 cent store in the truest sense. So many of the 99 cent stores around the city are 99 cents and more, heavy on the more. Everything here is 99 cents, or less. You can even buy by multiples.
There is no way I wouldn't love this place, but it became really obvious that this was going to be a special experience while we waited patiently for a parking space. You see this sign?
and this is how people were parked.
I love idiots.
So yeah, this store sells everything, from the hardware store, to your undergarment drawer. Frozen foods, and fresh bread, including kosher goods. They even had a section specializing in treats, toys and decoration for Purim baskets.
So to be completely serious for a few seconds, 99¢ The Limit is actually a really good store if you're broke like me and need to squirrel your money. I found foodstuffs, and all kinds of random things that I wanted to buy, but managed to control myself, and only walk away with some Herr's Ketchup flavored potato chips (I only ever find them in Long Island!) and a pop-tube of Pillsbury Flaky Golden Layers biscuits (another fave and supermarket rarity). Now, of course, I didn't take pictures of these items. As per the usual, I present to you the items that you should probably spend a little more money than a dollar on, the awesomely and oddly named, and the things I think are just plain jokes.
Spend More Money:
I needn't say more.
Wouldn't make a half bad Drag name, right?
You've seen it. Similar to the logo, in the trampstamp position. On Shayla, the lumpy girl with the acne scars in front of you on line at the water park.
Buy it. I'd like to see you try.
Sing it with me - Why you comin' home, 5 in the morn'...is something goin' on? Lemme smell

Samuel L. Jackson. Deep Blue Sea:
Coincidentally, I've had a cringe-worthy line off the soundtrack in my head, and have been saying it inappropriately for weeks now because it's that bad, and I just can't stop myself -
"my head is like a shark's fin!"

Kotex can't decide if they want to control your menses

Ok, so you can't exchange books.
But there was no sign saying you couldn't return or exchange underwear (which they had TONS of). Swear.
Holler. In hindsight, I should have bought these.
That cutie corn stick knows he just signed his death certificate.
Here's where shit gets real retarded.
You see that, right? It's a durm.
Happy Air Conditioner toy, for the kid who from the start seems to respond to the ads on daytime tv to get your degree in air conditioning repair without needing a G.E.D.
Play house come along game = greatness.
Mini The child likes the thing = great greatness
And I think to myself, what a vonderful world.
Notice - markers, not sand.
This was on the back of a toy cosmetic set. Infant.
Jokes. I told you.
