While it was cold and rainy, its usually worth it in the end. We started at one of my favorite vendors who has the cutest painted wood pieces. There always so beautiful and well priced. This bookshelf was priced at $150, but the vendor quickly informed us that he could knock off $40.00. They even came in a variety of colors.
This similar option at Pier 1, which I own in light blue, retails for $229.95. Needless to say I did not pay that.
Brittany was totally in love with this piece.
And Bonnie put her haggling skills to test by getting these two driftwood pieces for $30.
In case you haven't noticed, driftwood has made a comeback. From tables at Crate and Barrel ....

to coat hangers on Etsy. The organic look it has is actually very versatile and can be used with lots of styles. Bonnie's is modern country. It seemed that the theme of the day for me was Coastal. I thought this lamp was really cool, but imagine it with a drum shade instead. I was afraid to ask "How much?" out of fear that it would be too cheap to pass up and I'd have to take it home.
I actually didn't take the picture of the lamp until I saw this piece for $5.00 and thought they'd be cute in a room with a coastal feel.
