Default Bedspread

Hello, again, guys. I was wondering if you guys knew anything about the bedspreads Drew's offering to freshmen through a catalog-like brochure they sent in the mail. Do you guys know if its really necessary to purchase anything from that? Thanks!

no i don't think it is really necessary to buy it from them. the bed sheet you can basically buy it from any store such as target, kmart, or walmart. It right the bed perfectly.

It really depends on what you want. I didnt have time to go look for a bedspread since i was away so it was easier to order it and have it sent to my home. My roomate last year bought her pwn bedspread. One thing is that the pillows they send arent so great so you may need to get others!

I personally wasn't thrilled with the stuff I ordered from them. The towels were pretty thing and the comforter started pilling (the fabric started getting those fuzz balls on it.) I bought another one to replace it. The only thing the twin XL size affects is the sheet size for the bed, and those you can get at Target, Pottery Barn Teen, Lands End, etc... try googling twin xl sheets. Hope I could help =]

The stuff I got from them wasn't very good for the price. Go to target and buy twin Xl stuff or the such and you'll be better off. I also know some people who bought twin sizes and thier stuff fits on their beds too. So chances are you'll be ok. If your really worried buy a size up.

Yeah, Drew's stuff is not very good. Just go to Bed, Bath and Beyond or even Target for twin xl sheets and bedspreads. They usually have good deals for college students, especially toward the end of summer.

yes, usually starting end of June, July and definetely august there will be getting ready for college/school sections in Wal-mart, Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, Linen's and things, even K-mart selling the things you would need/like for your dorm room. so they will have clearly labeled sheets that are the twin xl. the reason you need these is because the beds in the dorms are extra long (hence the xl) and fitting twin sheets on those beds is a stretch. hope it helps.
