I don't know about you, but nothing (*almost nothing) gives me as much satisfaction as getting a good deal.

I've been looking at this sconce for the past year or so on Shades of Light. It was perfect for our main floor hallway. I pinned it.  I loved it. I lusted it. I needed it.

But, alas, it was $199.00. Way too much for my frugal Mormon heart to accept.

So I waited. And waited. And cheated on my sconce by looking at other sconces at places like the Home Depot and Lowes. Oh, for shame!

But, like a tragic love story or substance addition, I kept coming back to it.

And you know what? All the waiting and lusting paid off.  This past weekend Blake and I drove down to Richmond as a spur-of-the-moment adventure, and we happened upon the only Shades of Light decorating outlet in the country. And there, sitting quietly in the corner, was THE sconce. And the price? $24.00. You better believe I snapped it right up.

Victory is mine! And it is so sweet.


  1. Wow. This is me applauding you for your amazing deal finding. I always feel victorious when I get a good deal. And now, your sconce will hang on your wall like a trophy and you can relieve the thrill of victory every day. It looks great.

    1. Thanks, Julia! I always feel like I'm sticking it to Corporate America when I get a steal of a deal. I like the way you put "relive the thrill of victory every day." I surely will do that.

  2. Wow! That is a steal! Holy cow! I always love things so much more when I get good deals.
