Bargain Shopper

Okay, not a bargain shopper but I did get a great deal today on stemware. When Bev and I were in Columbus I picked out some amazing Mikasa glasses. She said to wait until we got home because I could get them here for just as cheap. WRONG-or so I thought. Beth and I went to The Bay to price them. They were $29.99 in the US and $49.99 at The Bay. That is a big difference. I decided to go to the Mikasa store in Woodbridge today. SALE!!! Buy one box and get the second for half price. The price there was $39.99 a box with the second for $20. Who could pass up a deal like that?

I also picked up our counter stools when I was in Toronto. It's a good thing we are moving in at the end of the month. Beth's warehouse is getting quite full of house items.

I had better add some knitting content to this. I sat and knit yesterday afternoon waiting for the Nascar race to start. I accomplished about 2" on the Kimono Jacket (the Dawn Shawl is in the store).

When I went into the store this morning, there was a present on the fax machine for me. Berroco sent me an advanced copy of Kori so that I can start a store sample. You knit 60 squares that are sewn together. This will make a good project to take with me to Vegas. Easy to carry on the plane and I can just take a couple of balls.

People regularly comment while in the store that knitting needles aren't allowed on an airplane. I have always carried them with me. I don't usually knit on the plane but I have them just in case. If you go to the website for the Transportation Security Administration, they have a page devoted to knitting on the airplane. Click to read.

I'm off to have my nails done. I want to get home in time for Hell's Kitchen. I missed it last week and don't want to miss it again.

The glasses are very pretty. Can't wait to see the house when it's all outfitted.

I really like those glasses, I will be by for a glass of wine when you are all set up! haha.
I am a big fan of Gordon Ramsay's.

Great purchases. I am taping Hell's Kitchen as we speak. I think i have mentioned before, I have a HUGE crush on him.

I love those glasses ... it seems you and I have quite similar taste in stuff like that (I would have chosen stools like those as well) ... scary stuff!
