I didn’t really need a mirror.
But, when I spotted a beaded silver beauty at Tuesday Morning, I knew it would be the perfect thing for my entry. That was until I saw the price. At $125 I just couldn’t bring myself to do it knowing I already had a mirror there that was just fine. So, I walked away from it.
Months went by. And every single time I stopped into Tuesday Morning (it’s right next to Trader Joe’s which is oh so wrong and yet oh so right) it was still there. And every single time I would peek at it to see if perhaps, just maybe, the price had been marked down.
It never was.
Finally, almost a year after I had first spotted it, I asked the saleslady when she thought it might go on sale. She scanned the price tag and informed me that it actually was on sale but only 30% off.
I hemmed and hawed and held it in my hands and envisioned it in the space and checked out how my hair was looking that day before putting it back on the shelf (behind a bunch of other mirrors of course).
Why, you ask?
Well, I still just couldn’t bring myself to buy yet another mirror knowing we have them all over the house AND a couple stashed away in the attic.
Fast forward a few weeks and there I was popping into Tuesday Morning once more, this time looking for a piece of furniture for a friend who is redecorating her home when…there it was!
The mirror was still there!!!
Once again, I marched it up to the counter and once again the price tag was scanned. Only THIS time, I was informed that the price had been marked down to…wait for it…$25!!! That’s right folks, from $125 to $25.
I’m pretty sure it’s officially my best deal ever and I deserve some kind of a “patience is a virtue” award.
I couldn’t wait to get it home and place the beaded beauty right in the entry where she belongs. I’m especially enjoying seeing how she looks against our new wall color! Remember how we said goodbye to the yellow?
Well this is your little sneak peek at the new color. I promise I’ll have the full reveal soon!
In the meantime, here are some more amazingly thrifty finds and ideas from my friends on the Thrifty Style Team.
