Woo Hoo! My Fabulous Outlet Mall Bargains!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Outlet Mall BargainsLately the pickings have been kind of slim at Goodwill so my friend Linda at Nina’s Nest and I have been hitting the outlet mall. I have to say that I have been amazed at the great bargains that we have found...including a whole lot of frenchiness! I’ve been saving them up to show you and I can’t wait for you to see them! 

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Potttery Barn Bargain 2 OK…let’s have dessert first and let me show you my best buy! Woo hoo! Can you believe your eyes? That’s $49 reduced to $9.97…from Pottery Barn! If my math is correct, that’s 80% off!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn BargainAnd here it is…this fabulous glass hurricane! It has one tiny chip in the rim which almost requires a magnifying glass to see.  Don’t you love it? The faux Granny Smith apples were also a Pottery Barn bargain at under $10 for 6 of them…and they are so realistic! I have already found several ways to use them. They will save me money in the long run because I usually decorate fresh Granny Smith apples…and then nobody eats them.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn Basket Here’s another bargain from Pottery Barn…this grapevine basket at half-price for $16! It now resides on my front porch…

Geraniums ...filled with these gorgeous geraniums!  I can’t wait for warm weather to get here so that I can add pots of them to my patio! 

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn Picnic Basket Gotta love this one…a wonderful picnic basket from Pottery Barn…originally $59…reduced to $21! I see summer picnics with my grandsons in my future!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn TrayThis great wicker tray came from Williams Sonoma…another fabulous bargain at…not the $79 regular price…but for only $23! That’s 70% off! Woo hoo! I love it!

Kitty Hmmm…it looks we got photo bombed by Miss Kitty…or her tail!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Williams Sonoma ConfitureAnd here’s my frenchy favorite…this bistro français jam pot from Williams Sonoma! It was only $13 and looks like it was made to go with my French canisters! In the background, you can see…

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Egg Holder …my French wire egg holder. It was my most expensive purchase but I fell in love immediately. I saw one in Monet’s kitchen in Giverny and have been wanting one ever since!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT French Farmhouse Style on a BudgetAnd even more frenchiness…these great rustic tea towels! They were also from Williams Sonoma at $8 each…waaay cheaper than the European versions! And if they look familiar, it’s because…

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT French Farmhouse Style on a Budget a …you saw them here…when I showed you how to get French farmhouse style on a budget! And that fabulous tray is also a Pottery Barn Outlet find!

page Can you believe all the wonderful frenchiness I have been able to find at such amazing prices? I will have to say that I have discovered that the common factor seems to be that most of them are no longer available in the store or online. But…hey…it’s OK if I am a little late to the party on buying them since I get to have them at such bargain prices! And you know how I love a good bargain!

  1. Very nice purchases at nice prices, Debbie!

  2. Wonderful Debbie!
    My favorite is that picnic has such a flair to it. And the blue and white jam pot,
    I can't ever get enough of blue and white.
    Your enthusiasm is contagious!

  3. Great finds, Debbie! I know what you mean about the pickins' being slim at Goodwill. Your WS and PB baskets are fabulous and I know you're loving the French wire egg holder.
    Loving your blue and white vignette on the coffee table.
    Now you have me wanting to go to the outlets...again. :)
    Hugs and have a great weekend,

  4. My heart skipped a beat when I slipped through the door of your blog this morning! Everything is positively lovely. The hurricane vase is so versatile and you can use it all year round and change out what is inside. The porch and picnic baskets are wonderfully rustic looking. The trays are fabulous and useful and the confiture is so pretty, too(not to mention the canisters you already had). It is so cute that your "petite chatte" got into one of the pictures! You might say she just "butted in!" Love this post. I thought I'd died and gone to France!!! Thanks for sharing your wonderful finds.

  5. Great finds! Score!


  6. Really love the wire egg holder, Debbie! Sometimes, outlet shopping CAN yield some good finds. :-)

  7. Yep, great deals from my favorite outlets. I have that same WS tray and it was even cheaper than that the day I got it a few months ago.

  8. Oh how fun, love the outlet malls. You found some super bargains. Hugs, marty

  9. Seriously....that little jam's the cat's meow. ;) I it! I am also a sucker for Pottery Barn. That outlet mall seems like a wonderful honey hole of a spot! :) k.

  10. Wonderful buys Debbie! That picnic basket is really French looking and very unique! Love the wire egg holder too! I need to check out the outlet mall! It's a bit of a drive but maybe worth it!

  11. So many great finds! Love all of them, especially the baskets. I wish our Pottery Barn and Williams Sonoma outlets were not 3 1/2 hours away! I think I had better plan a trip soon, though, and scoop up some fantastic bargains!! Thanks for sharing your shopping trip - I love to see what bargains other bloggers find!

  12. You got some fantastic deals and beautiful items I love them all but the baskets and the tray are my favs. I wish our outlets weren't so far away, I would go.


  13. WoW! You did great. Love it all. Sounds like a great shopping excursion.

  36. Debbie, I love every single thing! I miss all the outlets in and around Atlanta. There is not a single one near me now. Thanks for linking your beautiful new finds to the Open House party.

  37. You got all of these at an outlet mall? San Diego has some, but I never bothered to look around - but I guess that has changed.

  38. Hi Debbie! What fantastic finds! I was going to purchase the basket from Pottery Barn myself this year. Love your displays!
