Guess what I got ...
First I must explain that this never and I mean never happens to me. I'm always the one that just misses a great deal or hears about it the next day from a friend and it's too late! For that reason alone, I was jumping for joy ~ I was finally at the right place at the right time!
While running a few errands, I decided to pop into Talbots. I needed {wanted} something springy to wear while I pretend it's spring here in the still chilly northeast. While meandering around the store, I noticed they had items in the back of the store that resembled homeware (not sure that's a word) goods next to the shorts, and summer shirts ~ not the normal selection one would find at Talbots. The lovely Talbots lady explained that they were display items that may or may not have been used in the store and were selling them to make room ~ at ridiculous prices I might add!

What's a girl to do when faced with such an unexpected surprise? Load the back of your SUV and quickly drive home to admire your stolen {I mean sale} items!

My herb garden will look lovely dressed in black this year ~ just what I was looking at last week at the garden shop ~ three staggered sizes with cute finial tops.
I've always wanted a pair of "old" suitcases but could never purchase them from an antique shop due to my mold allergy.
The picture is hard to see and I don't care for the blond wood frame so I'll have to add a few personal touches before it makes its grand debut in our home.
My real thrill of a deal are the three self standing lattice panels ~ I'll share what I'm doing with them in just a few days.
Even Bozley admired my fabulous deals.
All these goodies for a mere $50.oo!
As if actually finding this amazing deal wasn't enough ~ I was able to use my Talbots card and get double points ~ that makes this a double score!
I was so excited about my goodies I completely forgot to look for clothing ~ guess I'll just have to go back : )

When stuff like that happens it makes me the happiest girl in the world. I feel your thrill girlfriend. I bet your heart was pitter-pattering as you tried to get it all out of the store!
You really scored!
I am now going to go ahead and offer my opinion. I would paint those lattice panels high gloss black with a fresh coat on the topiary frames too and use them together.
Have fun!!!

Rachel said...

Good Morning Jo!

Thank you so much for your comment!
I would love to "meet you" in real life ~ I believe we are close to one another. :) I could have met you for this wonderful Talbots shopping excursion! I wanted to say how sorry I am that I did not get to meet you on March 1. I could NOT believe the snow storm. We had so many who could not make it due to the weather. I know He has a plan though. I am trying to get the video posted today/tonight with my husbands' help. Praying that it will work!:)

Please let me know how you are doing, I would love to encourage you in any way.

Many Blessings to you!

Hi Jo :)

You DID score! Who would have thought of buying something besides clothes there? Great finds :)

The visual dept. at my previous retail job "cleaned house",so to speak, and was planning to sell all of their old stuff at a public sale. Management was privy to this information, so we all hauled %#@ to their stockroom to pillage and grab the good stuff before it was all gone. So I know how ecstatic you feel getting all these finds for a song! Congrats. Sue
