The Scratch & Dent (oops!) section is a virtual "discount" spot!  Items in this section are 100% safe, 100% usable and are still of the highest quality.  In the Scratch & Dent you find products marked at an acceptable, discounted price that reflects the flaw.  There isn't anything wrong with the item - maybe the label got scratched or applied slanted, candle wick might not be completely centered, bath fizzie may have a crack or the item/product may just be overstock - whatever the reason, this is a great opportunity to get high quality products at a very discounted price!
