Everything Must Go!

While out on yet another shopping trip this weekend, I discovered that our friendly neighborhood Pier 1 was going out of business. Sad as it is (where will all the children buy their papasans?), I jumped at the chance to do some bargain shopping... but Pier 1 let me down. I suppose they shouldn't be blamed - after all, everyone wants to do a little bargain shopping - but pickin's were slim. I had hoped to get a few things to stock my gift supply kiosk - what, you didn't know that I aspire to be the lady who keeps a supply of gifts on hand just in case one is ever needed? Please! Anyone who loves gift wrap as much as I do knows that you should always have a stock of candles, coffee mugs and wine on hand so you can give a gift at a moment's notice. But alas, those decorative items were the first to go. There were some crazy pillows, and a few janky candles, and not much else. I managed to find a couple things for my FMIL, and if she doesn't like 'em, no big deal, because they were CHEAP! I also found a charming little picture frame that matches the decor of my living room. Good times.

SALE! SALE! - B

yes, you should always keep wine on hand. As well as lots and lots of bourbon.

Are you saying I'm cheap??? You know I don't care. It's the thought, right. Besides, at our Christmas, it's the amount of gifts that counts. I thought maybe you bought the giant round chair. FMIL :P

I love a good sale, but I LOVE the chair in your pic of choice, even more.
I have yet to set foot in a Pier 1.
3 children kind of cramps the need for going in stores like that.

I love Pier 1. I agree with Peach about the children part though. As much as I love that store, I cannot go in there unless I'm childless, which doesn't happen often. I'm jealous that you got to go to a closeout sale there. Although, Peach, if it makes you feel any better about not having that awesome chair, you should know that with 3 small children, that chair is NOT fun. Seriously, it falls over.
