The Shopping God’s Were With Me!!!

I actually had another post scheduled to post for today. The post was titled, “I need HELP!”

My request for help was to help me find an object for my home. It is an object that many of you might question, but trust me on this, when you see where it is going you will understand why I wanted this little guy.

I was on the look for the last three days for one of these:

untitled (600x450)
untitled (283x425) 
ceramic (250x250)

After googling and investigating different leads I found out that they had these at Pier I about 6 months ago, but they were no longer listed on-line.

I figured if I were to find one it would be pure luck by going in and finding the last one on display at a Pier I.

Yesterday the shopping god's were with me!!!

 I was having a fun day with my friend and we, of course went into Pier I to check it out. At first there was no elephant to be found. I did a last little look  around the store and there he was!!!

We asked if they were having a sale soon because he was marked $99.00.
That was more than I wanted to pay, but was willing to pay that after my friend reminded me of how perfect it was and it was exactly what I wanted and had been looking for.

My wonderful friend told the clerk that they no longer had them on line. Sooooooo, the clerk did a price check and he was $39.99, “Sold!” Happy Dance ensues!!!

My friend said that the elephant seemed to make me so happy that she thought maybe she should get one just to have that happy feeling, even though she did not desire one at all. We laughed about that!!

I  am now the proud owner of  a wicker elephant table!!! Yay!! Don’t you just love when that happens.

Here he is………..

I think he needs a name don’t you?

Has something like this happened to you before? What was the item and was it a great deal?
