Deal Of The Day!

Did you ever find something you were looking for and thought, “that’s a pretty good deal”, and then you find out it is an even better deal than what you thought you were getting?   It happens rare enough for me that I get excited when it does!  I went to the Ballard’s Outlet with my daughter and in the same place is Grandin Road and Front Gate.  We walked into Front Gate, thinking it was Ballard’s and right in front of us were stools.  Bar stools and counter stools.  I need counter stools.  I thought I needed three.  They had some beautiful styles, just like their catalog.


This is the style I got except this is the Antique Green, from their online catalog.  It is $299.00.  For one.

I found these two.  I didn’t put my reading glasses on, but it looked like the sticker said one was $99.00 and one was $109.00 {I don’t know what the difference was, they look like the same exact stools to me}.  I do know that these types of stools are very expensive.


There were only the two in this style and I really liked them over the same style in black.  I went and found an employee and they put “Sold” stickers on them for me so we could continue looking around {and I didn’t have to lay anyone out New York style for stealing my stools}.


Imagine my surprise when I’m watching the woman write down the prices on the slip at the register and she tells me this total.


Can you see that?  $105.00 for two stools that I have not seen for under $250.00 ~ a piece ~ anywhere!  I told my daughter that even when Target sells a pair of stools, it is at least $179.00 for the two and they are not as nice as these.  Heavy, upholstered, swivel, and the color goes with my other furniture in this area.  It worked out that two fit here nicely and maybe that counter will stop being a catch-all for our “stuff”.


$105.00!!! I am floored and can’t wait to brag on my great deal to the hubby when he gets home!

What a steal! And they are so pretty too! But stop giving us here New Yorkers a bad name. ;) I haven't had to "take anyone out" in a store in quite a while.

P.S. Cracking up over the thought of you having to "lay someone out New York Style". LOL!

Way to go Kathy! I would say that most definitely is the deal of the day!!! They are beautiful and look really nice at your counter.

Let me start by saying how jealous I am that you have a Ballard's outlet near you. This is definitely an awesome deal. I'm so excited for you. I love when that happens. You get up to the register and fall silent when you see what it actually rang up as. So cool. Looks awesome.

Deal of the day girlie!
Love them. I so wish they had an outlet nearby. Oh on second thought, I'd be broke so never mind.

Wow! Great deal! They are gorgeous!

CosmoGirl Carla said...

Oh yeah! I love when that happens. How hard was it to keep from jumping up and down all giddy-like in the store? LOL! They are beautiful stools. You scored big time on that one, Kathy.
