Happy Little Impulse Buy!


After Alison of My Little Happy Place posted about Nate Berkus' HSN upholstered stool I impulsively decided I needed two. The price is only $119 but if you love it, you'd better hurry, as she mentioned today that it's almost sold out. Don't know where my 2 stools are going yet, but I'm happy with this impulse buy.

Have you made any impulse buys lately that you're happy about??

I'm feeling so poor right now so I've been trying to be good. It is hard, especially when you spend time reading blogs!!! Can't wait to see where you put them. Good score!!

Those stools will be so versatile. Nice purchase. I just bought a pale turquoise garden stool for our patio that has me freshening up the whole place.

Impulse buys have been some of my BEST buys, so I totally know where you're coming from with these new stools of yours.

Since you asked, my latest spur-of-the-moment splurge was a Craig's List corner cupboard for our dining room. It's solid wood (ugly color, tho) and the perfect size for the spot ... now to find the exact right color of smoky blue green to make it dazzle ... Olympic's Scarborough is the current front runner.

Have a great weekend!

I have it and I love it! I bought one for my vanity area. But it will eventually move to the living room so I should probably buy a second one.

I just checked and they are sold out! Let us know how you like them once they arrive. I have been looking for something to put at the end of my daughters bed and these look perfect.

They are great looking - I noticed them as well and they are so versatile - they could go anywhere!

Yes, my $ 79 Kirklands knot mirror last week. Those stools are chic and will definitely find a home in your house. Hey..some thing you just have to have...

it's very Hollywood glam & u got a pair! it will be fabulous!

alison@MyLittleHappyPlace said...

Thanks for the sweet mention, Michelle - those cool babies are now out-of-stock, and I never was able to get them ordered. I'll be ready to jump if/when they restock!

Please DO post yours, and do a little product review when you receive them.

P.S. - My security word is: bionate - ironic, huh? (Buy a Nate!)

Dumbwit Tellher said...

I'm envious; a stellar impulse buy and as of tonight sold out. These are classics. I've got one more in college, I don't get impulse buys much anymore, but I'm gearing up for the day!

your (envious) friend, Deb!!
