When Did Big Lots Become The Ish?!

That's what I want to know!?! I rarely ever went in Big Lots, maybe once a year if that. Last Thursday I decided to stop in on my way to the playground w/ my Jelly Bean. Boy oh boy, let me just say this.. we never made it to the playground. Here's why.

The holy grail of sinks is only $ 299!
It's sidekick for $249

The little tag-a-long is $229. You can't beat those prices with a switch, even if you had to pick it off the learning tree yourself.

I don't even care that they are sinks & that I rent and don't even need it! The only reason one didn't come home with me was b/c I left the truck in Memphis and only had my car I'm not a hoarder and I feel I need to establish this somehow. But man I could've taken my mirrored trays and covered those plumbing holes on top and used them as side tables that could sit in the garage w/ everything else I've bought. Wishful thinking.


I bought 8 of the frames above. 4 for me and 4 for my mama (the one who sent me to pick switches). At $7 ea. they were a hell of a deal. Pictures do no justice. They also come in black & dark wood. They will go in my bedroom. I'll show you an update of my room this week or next.


I also picked up 2 mirrored sconces for my mom. They were $10 ea. which to me is $5 to much. Just sayin...

Here is a better look at the ones I snatched up.



I love this $60 mirror. I thought the quality was well worth the $$. It would be perfect in a bathroom over the sink.


I rarely love prints. Though I have some in my home, I have yet to find ones that steal my heart. I do like this one though. It was about 3.5-4 feet tall. For $30 if I had the right room for it, in it would go.

I bought tons of other things. The Echo Pointe items they sell are FABULOUS, and 50% off right now! While blog surfing I saw that High Heeled Foot In The Door had a post today about her Big Lots finds. Funnyish. Big Lots, when did you get so grand?! I applaud you, hell I'm gonna give you the standing "O" for truly making my day. BRAVISSIMO!!

ok, we must be on a psychic wavelength or something, because i went to big lots yesterday, too!! in fact, when i first walked in, these kick-ass looking vases caught my eye and i veered off track to go examine them. i deemed them unworthy of their $6 price tag and went to go buy my paper towels and such, but man i was impressed, too. i'll definitely go back when i have time to check things out in better detail. (i didn't make it to the furniture and wow, can't believe some of their options!)

The mirror sconces are so cute. I've been (passively) looking for something like this! And the sinks are pretty fab, I really like #2. Can't wait for the room update =)

damn...dont make me go to big lots..i got bills...and lucky for me i didnt have to pick my own switches...my granny had those bad boys waiting on top of the fireplace as a reminder for me..but my husbands mom made them do that..she would even make them go get switches for the when she was about to whoop his siblings..and was told he would get it to if he brought in a little switch....to funny thinking back to those days...my daughter use to scream if she saw me going to the tree! LOL

I also saw those sinks at Big Lots this past weekend... I was amazed at the price and almost wished we had a bathroom to redo.. your idea of using them as side tables and just covering up the holes w/ trays is an amazing idea!

Redesign Diva said...

I love big lots! I have gotten some amazing finds there. The one close to my house had these adorable mirrored mini drawers. They were precious but something like $35 and so I passed them up.

Fran said...
