Sample Sale Scouting

In earlier posts I shared my love of online sample sale sites, and today I circled around several of my favorites and catalogued some mostly affordable and/or project-inspirational finds!

1. Uzbek River Rock Throw $50
2. Bryant Mirror $140
3. Arteriors Home Eastwood Log Table $274 (ok, I just added this as further justification for this project)
4. Preserved Beetle in Frame $104 
5. Pony Cube Ottoman $48 (at first glance I was amazed at how inexpensive this is, but then realized it's microfiber--which could be a bonus for some folks)
6. Durham Mirror $130

7. Dalmeny Side Board $1,999 (don't you think that adding a coat of metallic paint to a dresser could achieve something similar to this look and save some moolah?)

1. Woodcut Print Art $150
2. Violight Toothbrush Sanitizer $23 (I just don't know)

3. Deco Mirror $29
4. Overlapping Circles Mirror $29 (I was debating purchasing this for either side of my bed, but I think I'll need to go with something even larger)
5. Overlapping Circles Square Mirror $29
6. Gabeh Hand Knotted Rug $1,299
7. Fascination 3-Light Bath Bar $285 (I think it's a cool alternative to the typical bathroom vanity lighting)

1. Oushak Rug $1,800
2. Mamluk Rug $10,000
3. DVF dress $130 (how did that get on there?!)

4. Fortune Cookie Vase $29
5. Husk Vase $48 (a Jonathan Adler item that's almost a good a deal as this)
6. Judy Ross Swim Pillow $129
7. Dransfield and Ross Quartz Pillow $165

1. Map of Paris $225
2. Nambe Butterfly Salad Servers $60 (evidently they're handy for serving rocks)
3. Mirrored Trays $75
4. Round Wall Mirror $32 (Deco Mirror from One Kings Lane, we meet again--it's $29 at OKL, though--not counting shipping costs for either...)
5. Map of London $225

6. Colin 4-Drawer Console $899

Phew, how's that for a sample sale site tour?! Want to know how I knew it was time to stop browsing? It was when I came across the creepiest shoe of all time:

Prada $525 (can you believe it's currently 50% off?!)

Yeah, that's a sign. Have you done any online or window or catalog or in-person shopping recently?


  1. I definitely enjoyed this post until I got to the shoe!!

    1. Isn't that crazy with a capital C?! I should have dedicated a single post to it because it's that special.

  2. Update on the shoe--it's back up to $675 because it was a midday sale. sigh.
