I was at TJ Maxx...it comes second to my beloved Home Goods, but it will do. I went for a mission to get bathroom rugs, and only rugs. I did not find any up to par, so Mae and I were on our merry way...And then I spotted THIS baby! $39.99
Almost, if not, IDENTICAL to the one I have been eyeing from Pottery Barn:
(compare to bottom left lantern)
In comparison, they have the same window panes, same lock, same metal detailing on the top, I mean I couldnt find a difference! Can you? Mine is the middle sized one, about 2 feet tall on the bottom left. I about fell on the floor! (Except I was holding Mae, so luckily, I did not).
Once I picked up the lantern I noticed a piece of wood laying inside of it.
I searched the lantern high and low and could not find where it could have come from at all! Window panes, Check. Inside, Check. Outside, Check. So, I figured if I couldn't tell, neither could anyone else and I would buy it! While I was at the counter, I got brave and asked the guy what the piece was from and he immediately said I don't know but here is 10% off, making it $36! SCORE!
So total, I got the lantern with tax and everything for 39.60! Ryan will be pumped! (or he might say, did we REALLY need that lantern?) Answer: YES
And here it is:
Deal vs. Steal!
*Disclaimer: Since I feel like I got a steal, If you want to give Pottery Barn some love, Here is the link here to buy the $139.99 one! I suggest go to TJ!
