Who says fun, French style has to be expensive? Certainly not the case here!
Okay, so I'm sure a lot of you have heard of The Christmas Tree Shoppes. If not, let me tell you - just think Marshalls, Ross, or TJ Max on steroids. Not kidding!! I have heard of this place mentioned many times on lots of blogs. Problem is, we didn't have one in our area - that is until now. We just got one and the big grand opening was the other day. I stopped in yesterday to see what the fuss was all about.
Well, it was amazing. I found soooo many things that I would have loved to take home with me. Right in the door, I found a big wall fountain. For the amazing price of $14.99 - yes -can you believe it?
Then as I wandered around, I came across these fabulous dishes. The salad plates and bowls were .69 cents! And these aren't flimsy dishes. These are heavy, thick china dishes. The dinner plates were a little more - $1.00 - but hey, I was able to buy service for 10 for about $23.00 plus tax. That's cheaper than the $60-$80 price tag I've seen on a boxed set of service for 4. Anyway, we were in the market for new dishes and this was a great bargain so I went for it. And...see the amazing flatware in the photo? The ones with the handles that look like mother of pearl. .99 cents at Target - not kidding.
Anyway, I thought I'd share a bargain alert in case anyone is looking for some cute French dishes! And maybe a patio fountain? Very peaceful sound while relaxing on the patio!
Enjoy your day.
