Warehouse Wonders

Costco isn't all cheap hot dogs and bulk paper products. As the seasons change and the stock rotates, some surprising items work their way onto the shelves. That boat hanging from the ceiling? That surfboard on the racks across from the cheese? All of those are bargain buys from Costco, and you might see other unexpected items if you keep an eye out on your way to the dairy fridge or while browsing the website. Here are some of our more surprising finds, including a new set of PJs tailor-made for the most ardent warehouse warriors. (Not a Costco member? You can apply here.)
