This was the case with these lovely pillows.
I was thrilled to discover that My Sister's Attic is just a dangerous stones throw from my office. It takes two minutes to get there ladies...D-A-N-G-E-R to my wallet! I promised that I wouldn't go crazy in this store even though I had a very generous birthday check from my in-laws that I wanted to spend. I walked in to this amazing space with every nook and cranny just stuffed with gorgeous items. This is a decorator's nirvana, let me tell you.
So while I am perusing the store I spy these lovelies lounging on a couch. I act disinterested in case they are fabulously out of my price range. Then I spot the red slash and mark down pricing. Still I had to be sure that these were THE pillows I had been coveting for so long.
Oh...Yessssss... *sigh*, these.are.those.pillows. Original price $83.00 smackaroo's, but MSA price $29.99 each and then 30% mark down price $20.99 each. Oh the joy! Still I had to make sure that I really wanted them. So I walked around a little more. (FYI...I highly recommend that you do not do this, but if you are one of the two people shopping in the store...it's probably ok.)
Walking around browsing at the gorgeous purple leather chairs, teak side tables, armoires, bedding and dishes, I noticed some other mark down pillows. I headed over and spied these lovlies sitting on an overstuffed chenille chair.
Wait...is it? Why, Yes it is! The coordinating pillows to the lovely set I was just salivating over. Could they possibly be marked down as well. You know they were! PB original price $63.00 each, MSA price $24.99, 30% off mark down pricing $17.49. GASP! I grabbed these and rushed over to the other larger set still waiting for me on black leather sofa. I heard the angels sing as we headed to register.
I paid $80.00 for over $300.00 of Pottery Barn pillows. Wool Jacquard made in India with Velvet backs.
These are scrumptious, divine and now reside on my leather couch. Along with the velvet PB pillow found at thrift store for $3.00 over a year ago.
I believe this is the start of a beautiful relationship. We should be very happy together.
