WOO HOO!! Great deals make me happy!


I've been inspired by so many of you that have hit GW lately with some pretty incredible deals.  So my intention was to hit GW this morning to see what delightful goodies I could walk out of there with.  But instead, I found some wonderful goodies elsewhere...  Gordman's!  It is one of my favorite stores.  My parents gave me a gift card for there for Christmas.  I wanted to go last week when their clearance was an additional 33% off but sadly I didn't make it.  Then I received an email stating that their clearance was an additional 50% off!!  Woo Hoo!  Delighting GREATLY in small pleasures!  =]  Thank you Lord!


That is only part of my purchases!  The two red candlesticks were on clearance for $5 each, so I paid $5 for both!  The Liberty, Freedom, Old Glory candle holder is going to look good in my living room when I re-do it with a primitive patriotic theme, especially since it only cost me $2!  The cute little Welcome Home sign was $2, but I paid $1 for it!  I love the small crock with the blue star hanging on it... $2!  I paid $1 for it!  I so snatched that up in a heartbeat!  The cream/red box with red stars will go in my craft room.  I like buying sturdy boxes like that to store my supplies in... regular $3, paid $1.50 for it.  The three bags of potpourri and naturals were on clearance for $3 each; I paid $1.50 for each bag.  You can never have enough naturals!  They go with anything, anytime, anywhere.  Love to decorate with them.  Oh, and the Noel plate was part of Christmas, which they have at 75% off right now.  It was only $1.75.  They had lots and lots of Christmas plates and a few bowls.  I picked up quite a few, but put them back because my clearance was a better deal.  Hopefully when I go back soon, they will have some left.

But my favorite purchase of all was these delightful, sturdy painted bowls!  They were on clearance for $7.00 so I paid $3.50 for each one!!!

They are 7" tall and 14.5" wide and they are heavy.  So they are pretty good size!  Giddiness abounds!!  =]  The manager was ringing me up.  As he was looking at each final price, he was saying "I love to see these clearance prices."  I said "Oh, if you only knew!!"  Haha!!  I was so excited.  DH wanted to see my purchases.  For some reason he wasn't as giddy as me.  His response was "Where are those going??"  My reply, "Who cares!!  They were only $3.50 for each one!"  I want to keep them together in a set.  I'm thinking about lining them along on my bench.  What do you think?  Display together?  Or separately?

Everything I bought was prim perfect!  I don't see anything I need to change.  Well, I will probably grunge up the frosted candleholders in the Liberty, Freedom, Old Glory candle holder.  It's a little too clean for me.

Feeling oh so fortunate, I headed to GW.  After being at Gordman's, I was let down.  There really weren't any good buys like the jackpot I already hit.  I did find a cross stitch book that had a quarter on it.  When I went to pay for it, she only charged me a dime.  Lol!  My BIG purchase.

Anyway... I'm so excited about my goodies!  Can you tell?!  I just wanted to share.  Now it's time to go play with everything.  =]

Thanks for tuning in.  Ya'll have a blessed weekend~

Hi Angie~
Yes, by all means feel free to copy the idea on the Old Rugged Cross framed print. I saw a few in the Shaker Workshops catalog and they were selling for about $25.00 but, true to my nature I thought "I can make that". And, so I did. :)
I'd like to use some other old hymns and make more. The frame cost me $2.99 at GW and the rest was just paper and ink that I had on hand. Quite a savings for sure!
If you make one, I hope you post a picture of it.
Hugs~ Birgit

I do have to say that Gordmans is my all time favorite place to shop...it's a good thing that it's not super close to my house cuz I'd be there everyday...lol! Not only do they have awesome & very well priced prims but they also sell my all time favorite Silver jeans for way cheaper than anywhere else! Gordmans ROCKS!!!
Girl you did hit the jackpot...I can just imagine the happiness you were feeling while the cashier was ringing up your goodies! Those bowls are awesome & for $3.50 each...wow!!! I like the idea of putting them on your bench together...can't wait to see where you put all of your goodies!
Hugs,
Pam
