I ran into....

I love a good sale.
a) because I'm an American
b) the Big E can't hold me down!
c) Designers can get the lovely 'to the trade' items but they rarely (if ever) go on sale.
d) I love to brag about the deals and steals I find... mainly so I can share them with everyone else!

Z Gallerie "Circa Pillows". White circles embroidered on linen... pretty good for only $40!

Pbteen chairs

Ooh La La Armchairs from PB Teen.... so cute! And on sale for only $199?? Click here for more info.

Then I went cruising around anthropologie....

Lathe turned lamp anthro 70
Originally $150, now only $69.99! Great deal.
Laveau floor lamp anthro $199
Originally $500 (What!?) Marked down to $199! (Holla!)

*Here is where Hoyt would begin his "Sale" argument: 
(We will use this floor lamp as our example)

"Just because something is on sale or 60% off doesn't mean you have to buy it. It is still money out of your wallet! (nest egg)" -Hoyt

 (he does have a point.)

And for my rebuttal:
"But if you are 'in the market' for a floor lamp you have found a steal! For the following reasons (I count on my fingers during this part for effect):
1. The lamp is better quality! 
2. Therefore it was made better and will last longer (throw out your third finger on that last part)
4. It is much more unique than a $200 Restoration Hardware floor lamp. (no offense RH)
5. Meaning it will bring a punch of style to the living room and all we did was buy a little lamp!?
<Hoyt has most likely left the room by this point>
6. And lastly!! (yelling to make sure he hears this one) You know how important I think lighting is!"
... He knows I'm right. :)

(Feel free to use my bulletpoints in any future argument)

Moving right along...
Tauboret table anthro 199
Originally this glass-topped steel table was $700! (Reeediculous) Currently it is for sale for $199!  
(A steel steal!)... Mom, I'm turning into you.

West elm stool

West Elm pierced drum table... you could put it by your sofa, use it as a bedside table, prop your feet up on it, put it under a console table and bring it out for extra seating, or just look at it because it's pretty and reminds you of summer.

On sale for $159.

Pottery Barn has these extremely, super-duper, unbelievably soft throws that used to be $150 each and have finally been marked down to $49. AND, they are faux! 
Faux fur throw pottery barn 49

(For all of you who have ever been to my home and snuggled up on the couch to watch a movie- it's that blanket! (Cream color. Love it.)

Speaking of cream...
Pottery barn lumbar pillow

That sure is a sweet little cream pillow for only.... $19

Pottery barn journal
This monthly journal box is so darn cute- it makes me want to color-code everything in my closet and design an entire office based on this organized, colorful box. The only reason I haven't splurged on it is because (unfortunately) I never journal. It used be $100 and is marked down to $49. If you journal, please get this. And then tell me all about it! 
I know I'm all over the place with this sale post. But I hope at least one of you found a steal!

Last But Least $

Zgallerie flower tea light 10

I thought these flower tea lights from Z Gallerie were pretty, cool and 'pretty cool'... And for $9.99 each! A row of them would look nice on a long table. And they would also make a great gift! 
(My birthday is not until June so you still have time.. :)
