Look for Less: Crystal Table Lamp

February 21, 2011

Apparently I picked the perfect weekend to close on a house and shop – the President’s Day sales were off the hook! Almost as good as Black Friday… almost…

It’s a little overwhelming since we have NOTHING, but starting from scratch has it’s benefits: 

  1.  lots and lots of shopping
  2. it gives me an excuse to spend a stupid amount of money in 2 days (even though, I had a slight panic attack when my card didn’t work one time – it was probably tired, too!) and,
  3.  it’ll let me flex my decorating muscles –  they’ve been in hibernation for the past oh …. year…

Well, on to my fab find! We purchased all of the big furniture items on Friday, so on Sunday I started to focus on the details. The nitty-gritty, if you will.

For our bedroom, I saw this Crystal Ball Table Lamp and I thought, “Classy, different, and the ManFriend should like it (too bad if he doesn’t – justtt kiddinnn’).”

Unfortunately, I can’t justify spending $270 for one lamp since, you know, we need that money for a bed. No big deal.

But I did find this one online, not bad at $80…

But, and this is a large but, I wanted to see if I could save even more. And, I did. What of it. :)

I bought this same exact lamp for $40 and the same exact lamp shade for $15 at Tarjay (that’s Target, in case you haven’t heard this term of endearment from other fashionistas).

$55 each – that’s a savings of over $200! Glorious!

Unfortunately, Tarjay is being a little sneaky and not selling the product online – or at least that I can tell. So, you’re just going to have to take my word for it, ya hear?

They do have this one – but for some reason they have it at $70 with a darker shade. Madness, I say!

Bonus: ManFriend digs the lamps. I win!
