Well, I’m home. Since my return, I have vacuumed, mopped, swept up dog hair, and dusted. Apparently, my husband doesn’t think those things need to be done while I’m gone. The power is back on and so are my cleaning duties, I guess.
I had a great time visiting my mom. We shopped until we dropped yesterday. I would like to prepare you for what I am about to tell you. It is so amazing that it really deserves a post all to itself. I have been looking for a daybed to go in our downstairs guest bedroom (that isn’t done, mind you). I had narrowed it down to a beautiful one in Crate and Barrel for $650.00. You know…pocket change. My mom (who really doesn’t appreciate how lucky she is) lives a few minutes from a Pottery Barn outlet. Needless to say, I was filling up my cart, and I spotted this:
It is currently listed for $699.00. Uh, wha? The one in the outlet didn’t have the cushions, so they marked it down. and down. and down some more. It was ticketed for (drum rolls here) $77.00. Here’s the best part–I had a $50.00 gift card. For all who are mathematically challenged, that means I bought this sucker for $27.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It’s listed at almost $700.00, and I got it for $27.00!!!!!!!!!! Did you hear that, world?! When we loaded it into the car, my mom and I literally did a happy dance and high-fived in the parking lot. We. were. giddy.
As I said, this really deserves a post. I will come back later to show you all the other great finds from my no-power weekend. For now, please enjoy my savings splendor.
HOLY…..!!! That is a GREAT deal!! I love those! What a darling bed too!! What are you going to do for cushions?
You need no power weekends to shop with your mom more often I think!!!
Holy cow what an amazing deal! I’ll buy it from you for $27.01 :):):) Just kidding.
But seriously that is AWESOME!
And it is so Fabulous.

I am new to your blog, and am partially jealous and slightly drooling at the the thought of finding a $27.00 day bed…that’s my kind of shopping excursion!!
Holy. Crap. I kind of hate you right now. What a STEAL!! Good for you! :o) I’ve been to many Pottery Barn stores, but NEVER an outlet! What are you going to do with it? Ship it to me?
Susie Harris says
You lucky lucky girl!!! A store just opened not far from my house and I have yet to check it out. I might just rethink and see what they have. Im so happy for you I could give you a high five too. You go girl! Susie H~
I’m so jealous! Pottery Barn Outlet?! You got one heck of a deal! Can’t wait to see it when you have it all prettied up!!
OMG!!!!!! $27.00 I can hardly believe that!!!!! Why can’t I EVER find deals like that?? That is just fabulous and I am really jealous. Can’t wait to see all your other finds.
I am sooooo mad at myself for now buying one too! You made the deal of the century. I printed the picture of the catalog photo. How gorgeous… Now I am really mad at myself for not getting it. Larry just said to call and see if there is one more. got to go… dialing as I close this. You are a great shopper!!!

Don’t you just LOVE IT when deals come together?! My daddy used to say His children aren’t lucky, they’re blessed!! And I love blessings 🙂
That is the steal of a lifetime.
Everyone else has said it perfect!!! I am high fivin you too sister! That is amazing and gets me giddy for you. That has to be the coolest feeling……you paid less than the tax on the bed!! Amazing!
Oh my! That is the deal of the century! Nicely done!!!!
Hillcrest Acres says
What a lucky girl you are!!! Great find!!!
Okay, I can’t even begin to tell you how jealous I am.
A) that your Mom lives that close to the outlet
B) that you nabbed that sucker for $27.00
I have GOT to get back to that outlet soon….starting to go through withdrawals!!!
What a great deal. I am laughing cuz I know the feeling. Have you seen the Kia commercial where the lady screams to her husband, Start the car…start the car! I love that commercial. Can’t wait to see your daybed with the cushions!
OMG!!!! That is fabulous. I would have been doing a happy dance in the store for all the world to see. And I would totally be shouting from the car on my way home, “Hey you see this? I got it for $27!!!” Those things just never happen to me.
My Beautiful Mess..... says
WhoaJa…that ROCKS! Can’t wait to see what you do with it.
You’ve outdone me… and that is no small feat. Congrats on what is truly, truly the DEAL of the CENTURY.
