If you follow me on Facebook, you've seen some of the amazing steals and deals that I've come across lately. I blame Andrea, from Oak Ridge Revival, for rekindling my obsession with the amazing Bargains and Buyouts outlet. (Remember the great console table I bought?) I went to both of their locations (visiting one location more than once) over the course of three days. And, after hearing that they're getting NINE truckloads in over the next several days, I'm planning on going back.
I've taken you on tours of a lot of the different outlets around here, and this is one that definitely lives up to its name. Allow me to illustrate.
This lovely lady caught my eye during my first Bargains and Buyouts visit on Friday. I'm a sucker for anything tufted, and I loved the size and style of this ottoman. Not to mention the price - $99. Seriously, people. $99. But, I didn't buy it
However, I went back on Monday, and there she was. Waiting for me. Calling my name. When I asked the manager, "Is that your best price?" and he told me, "I could do $85," I knew she would be mine. Andrea told me that she has been able to negotiate the prices down during her visits, and I heard one of the employees say as much too. So, not only do they have great deals, there is still room for movement on price! Does it get any better?
I put this piece in my basement, replacing the red ottoman that was there.
It's started showing some wear (thanks to my daughter using it as a "nail spa table"), and one of the legs mysteriously started falling off. Sounds like the work of my other kids, "Not Me" and "I Don't Know".
The new ottoman fits in beautifully.
I'm going to have to do a follow-up post to recap more of the deals I discovered. But I think I'm going to wait until my next visit (after the NINE truckloads roll in)...
