I did not hit the stores or malls yesterday. Instead I headed to the computer to see what I could “snag” on sale. I’m feeling pretty good about what I managed to get.
I’m sure you’ve seen the awesome wool tufted wreath that Anthropologie had and noticed it being copied a lot in blogland this year. I’d been keeping my eye on it.
I must admit I fell in love with it when I saw it on Maria’s Dreamy Whites blog with her grain sack ribbon. But it was quite pricey at $128. Well, of course it was sold out on-line by early yesterday morning so I called customer service and the nice rep gave me a couple phone numbers of stores that were still showing them in inventory. I called NY and Cincinnati and got the last one each of them had. So I ended up with two. Why? Because of the price. They were 1/2 price PLUS an additional 30% off. That’s right. I got them for $44.80 each and free shipping!
I also ordered more of the blown glass sheep ornament. I had picked up one at full price of $18 when I was in Atlanta last month and they were on sale too at half off plus 30%. Can’t beat that. This sheep is sooo charming and reminds me of Country French. Sorry but it’s sold out on-line as well.
From Pottery Barn I got the Eiffel Tower tree topper. I had seen it in person at the PB store and was waiting for it to go on sale. I already have a German glass glitter Eiffel topper that I used on my tree but I think this one will make a great themed centerpiece as it is a nice large size. It is still available HERE. I missed out on the wired burlap ribbon with red stipe and the candles that I wanted.
Did any of you see the barrel planter tree stand from Ballard Designs? I was lucky enough to get the white one. I noticed they are all sold out today.
And I LOVE these He Is Born booklets from Wisteria. I already had a couple sets that I put at each place setting for Christmas dinner, but at 75% off I couldn’t resist buying more. I’m going to use them as gift tags next year. They are regularly $19 for 4 but now are $4.75 for the set. You can still get them HERE.
Oh, and finally, remember the post I did about my toile pajamas? Well, Gump’s still has them HERE for 1/2 off and you can choose red or black. I may have to pick up another set for a gift. They are too cool.
What about you? What are you picking up on-sale for next year’s décor or gifts?
