It’s a universally acknowledged truth that the day after a major holiday is the best and thriftiest day to start shopping for said holiday. The downside? You have to wait for months before you can pull out your new pretties. The upside? You’ll save a bundle on them, so you won’t wince at memories of the bills when you see them again.
Saks Fifth Ave has some brilliant deals on goodies to deck next year’s hall. Ornaments by designers like Christopher Radko
, Kurt Adler Polonaise
, Michael Storrings for Landmark Creations
, and even Versace
are being blown out at prices that will allow you to play Santa for your nearest and dearest. Twistie’s pick? This:
This is the Sultana Egg ornament by Jay Strongwater. It’s made of mouthblown glass painted with brilliant metallic colors and studded with tiny jewels. Gorgeous. The regular price is $140.00, and I think it’s worth that. Still, I’d rather pay the sale price of just $56.00.
Of course Saks isn’t the only place offering ornaments for next year at great prices, and some nice ornaments aren’t made my famous designers.
These charming tree-shaped woven wire lights may not have a designer name to them, but they’ll still add to the festivity of your home next year. Each string has ten lights placed 10″ apart and is UL listed for safety.
As for the price, well, they started out at $29.95, but they can be yours from Wrapables.com for just $19.99.
And we all know that Christmas ornaments don’t need to be in the shapes of Christmas items. They can be shaped like famous buildings, flowers, and all sorts of things. How about one shaped like a beloved pet?
This little cutie is a Norwitch Terrier, but there are other breeds available from Joy to the World Collectibles at Nordstrom, including goodies for us cat lovers. Made of beautifully painted glass, you can feel good not just about the look, but also from the fact that Joy to the World donates 10% of their annual profits to the Morris Animal Foundation.
Besides, it’s on a great sale! Regularly priced at $38.00, it’s been marked down to a mere $24.90.
Whatever holiday you celebrate, I hope it has been a happy one this year, and that your savings were merry and bright.
