mackenzie-childs, simon pearce, mariposa, michael aram DEALS...oh my!!!

so excited, as promised i would share my loot from saturday.  if you follow me on twitter, you may remember my tweet about a store closing SALE? well, i purposely didn't share the name of the store until i stopped there first, lol!

why and what did i buy?

let me show you...first off, i bought this adorable hanover bowl  [retails for $62.00].
super excited about this simon pearce purchase! doesn't it look great next to my simon pearce vase.
my family vacations every summer in stowe, vermont and often makes trips over to quechee, vermont to the simon pearce hand-blown glass factory and lunch at the simon pearce restaurant. check out the view from the restaurant below....TRULY AMAZING!

i also bought this adorable 4" mackenzie-childs pop ridge flower pot [retails for $60.00].

additionally, i bought 2 of these michael aram heart votives [retails for $39.00/each]. notice my waterford egg basket in the background...too cute! looks great with the easter eggs i bought a crate & barrel about 10 years ago!
now i really want the matching michael aram heart frame! doesn't it look cute a lit up!
finally, i bought this mariposa bumblebee wine set [retails for $52.00]

so what is the store and what kind of deal did you get?

everything was 60% off! yup, you read that right! i bought everything above for ONLY $100.00!!! okay $110.63 with tax, lol!  the store is called crosell & co. and it's located in wicker park [chicago].
crosell & co. has another location over on michigan avenue that is still open, which is why i was surprised those items didn't get moved? oh well, their loss is my gain....RIGHT! ha! ha!

finally, i received the nambe "cascade" 5x7 frame i ordered from rue la la
whew, is it possible to celebrate christmas in april?!!?! i sure think so!  ha! ha! ha!
