I was picking up some groceries at Meijer (grocery chain here in northern IL) the other
day and walked past their home goods section. Bright yellow markdown tags
and orange clearance tags caught my eye, so I decided to see what they had.
Who knew they had all kinds of cute stuff, such as these chalkboard label canisters
with pretty aqua tops?
I'm totally crushing on these owl bookends, but holding out. Maybe if they mark
them down a little more?
I've seen similar vases on the Anthropology web site - for a lot more money.
Pretty yellow pitcher and bowl.
Great assortment of cool clocks.
Owls, pigs, and birds!
Even demijohn bottles.
And then there's this mirror. I've had my eye on this mirror for over a year. The colors
are perfect for my living room and I could picture it on my fireplace wall. But the
$110 price tag always kept me from buying it. Now it's marked down to $70. Still
too much money for my budget. Wheeelll...the other day I was at a friend's house
and I was telling her about this mirror. She said she had a 15% off coupon (through
a Meijer credit card - which I don't have), plus she gets a 10% discount through her
daughter who works at Meijer. She asked me if I wanted her to pick up this mirror for
me, using the discounts...hello! So now the mirror is sitting at her house and I have
to go pick it up tonight.
I'm just hoping that the mirror is the right size. It might actually be too small.
Time shall tell!
