Outlet Shopping


Yesterday, I went to Dawsonville to go outlet shopping. I hadn't been up there in a while, so I was amazed to see how much the outlet mall had grown, not to mention the surrounding area. Anyway, to my surprise, there was a Williams-Sonoma outlet. Now, I love Williams-Sonoma. Not a holiday goes by where I don't give a number of gifts from Williams-Sonoma. I really just love that store. One of my favorite gifts to give is a set of three melamnte mixing bowls. They come in a lot of different colors and are a ton of fun. However, I never bought any for myself. Well, there they were at the outlet, in red no less, a color I want to incorporate into my new kitchen. Oh, they were beautiful. And, while I think the regular price of $24 for the three bowls is reasonable, they were on sale for $9.99. Another thing I love from Williams Sonoma are their dishtowels. Now these I think of as a luxury item. But there they were for a bargain price, so I got another set. I also got a new set of measuring spoons, because many of mine were lost in the move. I can make chocolate chip cookies with just a 1/2 tsp, but it is easier with a full set.

I also got some new boots to wear with jeans this winter, some clothes for the kids, and shoes for the one kid who was with me. All in all, it was a good day. Now to go back when my husband can come with me. He needs some new clothes...

$10 for those bowls was a great deal! You should have stocked up for future gifts.

Well, aren't you the shrewd one! I LOVE my W-S measuring cups and spoons. Too heavy to bend or fly around in the dishwasher. Good job!

It always amazes me at what can get lost in a move.

LOVE the red bowls! I'll remind you when my birthday rolls around next year...

Oh WOW!! Those bowls are beautiful!! Who cares if they are functional or not...buy 'em for the beauty!
Being the hick that I am (and, a anti-social hick at that!), I have no idea W-S is...if it's a good brand, expensive brand...nothing. My mixing bowls go waaaaaaaaay back to 19 years ago..and all you could find were the 'functional' clear glass bowls. *yawn*. I really need to get new ones...but the d*mn things won't die! :oP
