I also purchased lots of other items that will be for his Christmas stocking, so shh! dont' tell him. Blue and white striped leash ($2.48), matching collar ($1.83), both will be monogrammed in orange. I also got him a dark brown leather collar ($2.48) and several bags of fancy treasts between $1.50 and $3. There were tons of other goodies available along with some cute little clothes and picture frames. Visit the end cap of the pet aisle at your local Target.

Behold: Noritake China, Kendal pattern, circa 1969. Eight place settings, two vegetable bowls, large platter, salt and pepper shakers, butter dish, and creamer and sugar bowl. Total cost: Fifty Dollars. Yes, $50! This is in the neighborhood of a thouand dollars worth of china. And best of all is that it compliments our wedding china beautifully.
Now if I can only find the teapot for a reasonable price (rather than the $200 it is selling for).

The deals didn't stop there! I also picked up some fall themed cookie cutters (leaves, pumpkin, acorn), a pumpkin costume for Mack, a new leather collar and also a blue and white fabric collar with matching leash that I can monogram.
Total? Twenty bucks and some change.

I have several Luigi Bormioli pieces and they're all great. The glass is very thick and heavy and look so lovely and elegant on a table. Pieces I have include: 12 tall drinking glasses, pitcher, chip and dip serving set, cake stand, and pedastol trifle bowl. I heartily reccommend all of the pieces. If you're interested, most pieces can be found at Bed, Bath, and Beyond stores but dont' forget to look at your discount retailers such as TJ Maxx and Ross.

Send me your favorite items (whether you've bought them or not) and any extra information about them (how/where to purchase, percent of profits benefitting the cause, etc.). Even if you've just seen an item or have a link pass it on. By the end of the week we'll put together a little shopping guide.
My email address is to the right.

Visit your local Clinique counter and see if they promotion applies there as well, if not, then ask when they will have such a promotion, the sales ladys will usually tell you. Plus, in my experience with Clinique, if you're looking to try before you buy, they may have a couple things to pass along to you anyway, even if it's not an advertised promotion. For example, I always (always!) ask for a mini perfume when I purchase anything there. I tell them I'm a regular Clinique user and I like to the small sizes for my travel bag, purse, etc. and they most always find one for me. When I made my last purchase, the sweet counter girl gave me the display sample--hey, I'll take it!

In a desperate hunt for brown strappy sandals for last weekend's wedding I went to Payless. I didn't find what I needed, but I did find the cutest pair of loafers that I think I just have to have! They're dark chocolate brown suede loafers with a big sheer bow in chocolate brown with khaki polka dots. They're precious! Unfortunately I didn't find them online, but in true ironic fashion I did find a pair of shoes that would have been perfect for the wedding and were half of what I paid for the pair I found in My Town, but that's a different story.
Anyway--go to you local Payless, maybe you'll find the cute loafers I'm talking about. I want to wear them with a khaki skirt and light sweater, with jeans and a button-down, with walking shorts and a cardigan, and with khaki pants and a preppy wrap shirt.
Be sure to send pictures of your goodies if you go, or if you find any elsewhere.

Also, see the Currently Shopping For section to the right? I'm going to make that a community list too. So, if there is something you're currently looking for send it over. I'll post it with your name beside it and if other bargain hunters have a spotting or knowledge of said item--we can post it here.
Geesh Internet, I'm getting all sweaty over here thinking about all this bargain-shopping love!
