The Look For Less - Ceramic Garden Stools...


They're hot right now!

They're also incredibly expensive!

Pottery Barn has them scattered throughout the pages of their current catalog...

...and I love that they're used indoors and out as a versatile piece that can be placed anywhere you may need it.

How pretty is this?


But let's get back to the price...

Pottery Barn has them for $159.00

Ouch!

Yet, even that seems like pennies compared to these:


FineGardenProducts.com sells them for $328.00,

but, hang on, this is your lucky day...

they're on sale for $295.20!



Seriously?


That's considered a deal?



Wisteria.com is selling them for $129.00...

This color is perfect...


*sigh*

I don't know about you, but those price points are more than I can stomach!

And I won't even get into what the conversation would sound like if I brought one of those home to my husband!

So imagine my delight when I stumbled across this very affordable and attractive version at Costco this morning...

It looks exactly like the one from Wisteria.com!

Right?

The price:

$31.29!

Yes! You read that right!

$31.29

That's a savings of over $97.00!

So for any of you out there wishing you could get your hands on a Ceramic Garden Stool that has the Pottery Barn look without the Pottery Barn price tag, head to Costco!

At this price, I'm certain they'll be gone in the blink of an eye!

You've really found a bargain girl!
I don't think I need/want one of these, but what a deal! Love getting a look for less!

Hi there, I followed a link on another blog that was talking about the house numbers. I grew up in Tacoma!! How nice to meet someone that lives there now!

You found a great bargain! I've been wondering if a Costco membership was worth it as I have one close by. I'll have to go take a look!

Yup! Love these! Saw 'em at Marshall's and Ross for under $30. Gotta love that!

NO WAY!!! I'll be sending my poor mom to Costco today (since I don't have a Costco, can you believe that?..c'mon Oklahoma, get with the program)!

I've actually been looking for a garden stool to go next to a little chair I wrote about that I painted numbers on. Thanks so much for the tip!

HI there! I almost forget how I found your blog, but I have been following for a few weeks. THANK YOU for sharing this great deal. I have been looking for one of these and I am SO SO EXCITED to go to Costco tonight and pick one up. I hope they have then here in Northern CA! I saw one at TJMaxx last weel for $79.99 and I'm so happy I didn't give in and buy it!
Thanks again!
