Thrifting at Big Lots



It's time for another "Blue" post for Blue Monday at Sally's blog "Smiling Sally"

I have seen these glasses at Big Lots since early summer. I liked the unusual color of blue and thought they would be a pretty addition to my glassware. They are designed by Jennifer Ferrell which, to be honest, meant absolutely nothing to me. The glasses were originally $12.00 each. And then at Big Lots pricing at half off. So, Big Lots wanted $6.00 per glass? That's insane! So, although I liked them, that was just a way to high price for one glass! So, throughout the summer I checked on them. they went 60% off the original price which was still over priced. Then they went 70% off, still too high at about $4.00 a glass. This is Big Lots people! We don't spend $4.00 on a glass! I don't care if it was some TV Designer, I'm still not impressed with that price!

So, finally I stopped in to check out their clearance on Halloween and Fall items and saw these 2 glasses left at $1.20 each (90% off). Since I rarely, and I mean RARELY pay over $1.00 for a glass, I still wasn't super thrilled but, I had been wanting these for months. So, I broke down and bought them.




Happy Blue Monday everyone!
