A Great Find at Ballard Design

This is the second time I am drafting this post, having deleted the first one.  I’ll tell you why at the end.

I was searching Ballard Design online for merchandise for a client and somehow {I don’t know} I wound up buying these Christmas stockings for myself.

One side says “Naughty” and the other side says “Nice”.  I bought two so I could show each side and put them on a second mantel we have in our little den.   They are 13 wide x 25 long; a nice decent size.

$4.99 a stocking.  Yup, $4.99 at Ballard Designs!  Regularly $12.00 each.  I would have liked the stand, too, but that is $49.99 and a bit much for me.

I deleted my original post on this because the day after I placed the order I got a voicemail message from Ballard saying that they were sorry but these stockings were sold out.  Two days later I get an email from Ballard saying they were shipped.  They came Wednesday.

Shocked that Ballard had anything that affordable! Very nice (or naughty depending on the mood you're in - lol!).

Lucky you! A classic example of the right hand not knowing what the left was doing! Either that or the stock boy made an error in his calculations!

Either way, these are so cute!!

Merry Christmas!

Omg! I have had that happen so many times! I hate it when manufacturers do that! But at least you have a great story to tell. Hahaha
