I Had To Do It

Let me preface this by saying I had no choice.  My hands were tied and I was manipulated into doing this.  This was not a frugal nor a thrifty purchase, but it had to be done.

Last night I bought this chair from Pier 1.  It is their Sigourney chair. 

Pier1Sigorney 

I fell in love with this chair when I first saw it.  It was $499.00.  It then went on clearance for $399.00 {yeah, I know; I don’t consider that clearance either}.  I was going to wait until the price came down a bit more and then go for it.

But ~ I got one of those Pier 1 sale emails Thursday.  I went into the Pier 1 website and, while there thought, “let me see if the price on that chair has come down any”.   I could not find the chair online.  I refreshed the screen and tried again.  No Sigourney chair was coming up!  It was gone!  Panic set in!

I stopped in at my closest Pier 1 late yesterday afternoon and can you believe it, “I just put our last one on hold for someone else a half hour ago”.  A half hour!  I missed it by a half hour!  No.  Not good.

Since we planned to go out to dinner near the next closest Pier 1, I called ahead to see if they still had one.  They did!  One left. On the floor.  Did I want to put it on “Hold”?  Yes!!!  Yes, put it on “Hold”!

While there is a part of me feeling a bit of self-loathing for caving and buying it at the “clearance” price, there was no waiting for it to come down any further in price.  I had to do it.  I love this chair!

I love this chair too. Actually my mom bought it also but don't worry she is an edgy cool mom that continually inspires me. Lucky you. I always love stuff more when I get a good deal on it.

I agree that you had no choice at all in this matter. We would have all been very disappointed in you if you hadn't gotten this most perfect chair for your room.
Now, get over that guilt and enjoy the gorgeous thing!

Infarrantly Creative said...

It really is gorgeous. And it looks perfect in that spot you chose. i agree with Liz...sometimes a girl has to do what a girl as to do. :-)

Miss Obara said...

Oh...good job! I'm getting better at not waiting for prices to go down on things I really like. Because when I do...someone else gets it ('cuz they don't care about the price, i guess). So, good job on following your gut and just getting it! (You'll save in other places) ;)

Lisa@Pickles and Cheese said...

Gorgeous! Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do!

Marla at Always Nesting said...

Could that chair be any more beautiful???? Think of all the money you will save by not going shopping. You'll be home, admiring your beautiful chair. Actually, you can probably consider it a great investment. :)

Creative Decor by Brooke said...

I don't blame you. Sometimes a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do and if that is buy the chair before someone else does. Well, just do it. And love it. Now you can admire it all you want. By the way, it looks great!

Good for you! When you love something and feel heartbroken when it's gone, you know you'll probably love it for a long time to come. It's a beautiful investment.
