Get the Big O for Less

No, not that big O! I’m talking about the Riedel “O” series wine tumblers.

Riedel Set of 8

Not only are they pretty to look at and pleasant to hold, these wine tumblers are made of non-leaded crystal, so they’re safe to use anytime. They’re even dishwasher safe, so long as you use the top rack for them. Handsome, comfortable, and practical…yeah, that’s what I call superfantastic.

Of course it doesn’t hurt that they’re on sale at Cooking.com
. A six-piece set usually sells for $118.00, which isn’t at all bad for good crystal. Right now, though, through December 31, you can get them as an eight-piece set for just $69.95! That means you save nearly fifty bucks and get two extra glasses.

Drink up and enjoy!

Fly To the ‘Fly for Fifteen Per Cent Savings!

One day only! Everything at Bluefly is 15% off their already slashed prices!

Take a look at this deal:

Portolano black leather double buckle gloves These gorgeous double-buckled leather gloves by Portolano are lined in knitted Merino wool. Both buckles are adjustable for a nearly custom fit. What’s more, the look is stylish in the extreme now, but won’t look silly in a few months or a year. You’ll be able to wear them for years to come.

The original price was $165.00, which is not at all a bad deal for such a perfect investment. Still, Bluefly has been selling them for $99.00, which is much better. But just for today, you can get them for just $84.15! That’s nearly half off the original price!

Not in need of gloves? Not to worry! Everything else is on sale, too. You’ll find gorgeous goodies by Marc by Marc Jacobs, Furla, Tory Burch, Kenneth Jay Lane, and dozens of other top designers.

But hurry! Tomorrow the sale goes away.

Top-Notch on Top

I’ve long been a strong believer in hats. I think they add a touch of class and glamour to nearly any outfit. Of course, there are hats, and there are hats. In that second category, I have found this lucious example:

Helen Kaminsky Aldo Hat Classic shape, great color (also available in black), made of velour fur with felt fur feather detail, and made by Helen Kaminsky who really knows her stuff when it comes to hats. This one has it all.

In the normal course of events, one could expect to plunk down $240.00 on this hat. Luckily, events are not normal around here. They are superfantastic. That means I can direct you to Bloomingdales where you can purchase this classic hat that will last you for years for a mere $168.00.

And while you’re there, check out the other sales they have going. Now through November 16, they’re taking an extra 30% – 50% off selected sale merchandise. You definitely don’t want to miss the deals!

As Visions of How to Spend the Other $500.00 Dance Through Your Head

We can all use some new bedding now and again. Most of us can use a high-quality duvet. I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t want to slip into a high-thread-count bed and snuggle up. Well, now is your chance to do just that, even if you’ve taken a small hit in the recent economic crises.

This duvet seticon comes complete with two matching shams, all in 800 TC 100% Egyptian cotton. Choose from six attractive and versatile solid colors. I like the blue (shown), but you may prefer sage green, chocolate brown, crisp white, elegant ivory or classic taupe.

Oh, and that five hundred dollars I mentioned in the title? Well, you’ll actually save a little more than that if you order the set from SmartBargains today. See, the original price was $620.00, but it’s available now for the pittance of just $89.99 in your choice of Full/Queen or King size!

800 TC machine washable 100% Egyptian cotton duvet and matching pillow shams for less than a hundred dollars? And it’s not for a doll? How can you afford not to take advantage of this deal?

Oh, and while you’re there, check out their anniversary sale on jewelry and watches. Selected styles have been marked down an extra 20 to 40%!

I would probably get this gorgeous topaz and chalcedony chokericon for myself ($138.98, retail price $350.00, regular Smart Bargains price $179.99) and then find a really great watch for Mr. Twistie.

Le Creuset? Le Great Deal!

Regular readers of this space are well aware of my long-standing love of Le Creuset cookware. It’s versatile, hard wearing, and gorgeous to boot. What’s not to love?

Okay, I’m not in love with the price tag. I don’t begrudge it, you understand, because it’s worth every single penny. What I don’t love about that price tag is how it’s all too often well out of my budget range when I need new cookware.

And that’s why I’m excited about the Le Creuset deals going on right now at Sur la Table.

Le Creuset Soup Pots, Red and Blue This handsome and practical enameled cast iron soup pot, for instance, is a $150.00 value. Well, it’s on sale now for just $99.00! $51.00 off a pot that’s going to last you the rest of your life even if you make soup every single night is a great deal in and of itself, but there’s more for the savvy shopper right now.

If you spend $250.00 on selected Le Creuset items at Sur la Table, you’ll also get a red qt. enameled steel stockpot (retail value, $70.00) absolutely free!

If you love to cook, or you love someone who loves to cook, then you owe it to yourself to check out this incredible deal! And don’t forget, top-notch cookware makes a superfantastic gift to any enthusiastic cook on your holiday list.

Hats Off To YOOX!

YOOX.COM is having a huge clearance sale. That means spectacular bargains on designer clothes, jewelry, handbags, and accessories for the whole family! And what does Twistie covet out of all the deals on hand? Well, there are a lot of things I wouldn’t say no to, but I have a particular fetish for this fabulous
polka dotted hat
icon by Miu Miu.

Made of a sturdy cotton/linen blend with leather band and fully lined, this is a hat sure to brighten any cloudy day.

Oh, and did I mention how amazing the price is? YOOX usually sells it for $168.00, which is already a great discount. But with the huge clearance sale, it’s been marked down to just $59.00! That’s right: $59.00.

Twistie says: go check out the deals. They are many and superfantastic!

They’re Grrrreat!

One of the hot trends in fashion right now is animal prints. Frankly, I tend to avoid them. I don’t want animal spots or stripes all over my body. On the other hand, in a subtle piece of jewelry I can find the same patterns and colors nearly irresistible.

For instance, I find myself strongly drawn to this set of five banglesicon by RJ Graziano. Three are gold tone with a stamped pattern on them, while the other two are enameled in tiger stripes. Bold enough to get noticed, but subtle enough not to shout, these bangles will look great with nearly any outfit. And if you prefer to wear white rather than orange, they also come in zebra stripes.

Originally priced at $85.00, SmartBargains has been carrying the set for just $39.99. Right now, though, they’re having a huge clearance sale. That means these bracelets have been reduced to a mere $29.97!

And that’s just one of the great deals available. Be sure to hurry over to Smart Bargains for the best deals on the hottest items. Choose from clothes, jewelry, bed and bath items, furniture, and more. You won’t be sorry you shopped!

The Daily Grind, Only Better

If you love coffee, then you know one of the most important keys to a good cup of java is freshly ground beans. Nothing else gives quite the same aroma or flavor. I learned this at my mother’s knee many years before I learned to lean on the hallowed bean each and every morning.

As a child I would stare, wide-eyed, as she started her industrial strength coffee grinder in order to get one precious cup of life-giving caffeine. One large, precious cup.

And so it was that I found this KitchenAid Pro Line coffee grinder at Cooking.com and was overcome with a sense of rightness and nostalgia:

KitchenAid 7-oz. Pro Line Burr Coffee Grinder, Nickel Pearl Oh, it’s not the same, of course. Instead of one setting to grind your beans, this one has fifteen settings so that you can find the precise one that pleases both your taste buds and your chosen coffee making process. Whether you’re looking for espresso fine or French press coarse, you can adjust the setting to fit your needs. And since it runs at an enegry-thrifty 450 RPMs, there’s minimal heating of the beans as they grind, and less noise than most professional grade grinders.

Best of all, it’s on a heck of a sale right now. The suggested retail price on this baby is $299.99. Cooking.com usually carries it for $199.99, which is a fabulous deal. Right now, though, during their pre-holiday sale, you can get this incredible coffee grinder for a mere $169.99! That’s $130.00 off the retail price!

If you’re a serious coffee drinker, you cannot afford to pass up this deal. And if someone on your Christmas list (or with an upcoming birthday) loves coffee, now would be a great time to get them the perfect gift.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to find some space on my counter for a new grinder.

Smock It To Me!

I’m a complete sucker for old world details on modern pieces. Add a touch of lace or a bit of embroidery to a really sleek outfit and I’ll follow you anywhere.

That’s why I got so excited when I saw this fabulous suede jacket with smocked detailing at Monterey Bay Clothing Company.

Monterey Bay Smocked Suede Jacket The smocking adds a touch of femininity and grace to a simple, yet well-cut jacket. Wearing this, you’ll feel every inch a woman…but one who can take on the world and make it cry uncle. Oh yes, and it comes in petite as well as regular sizes, which is always nice.

Best of all, it’s a terrific deal. Originally priced at $149.99, the price has been slashed to just $27.00!

This is a deal not to be missed, my friends.

Arise, go forth, and shop!

What’s cooking? A Heck of a Bargain!

Every now and again, cooking.com has a deal that’s way too good to pass up. Okay, they have them a lot, but every now and again, there’s one that’s better than most. Well, I found one of those deals today.

Cuisinart 12-qt. MultiClad Stockpot with Cover
Witness the Cuisinart 12-qt. MultiClad Stockpot with Cover. It’s the perfect thing to make stocks and soups in all winter long for many years to come. Made of sturdy stainless steel, it looks as good as it cooks, too.

If you bought this just anywhere, you could expect to pay $220.00. Cooking.com, though, has it for just $129.95. Great deal? You bet it is! But it gets even better.

Now through September 15, if you spend $100.00 or more on Cuisinart open stock cookware, you’ll get a rebate form you can turn in for a bonus saucier pan! Better yet, spend $200.00 or more and get both the saucier pan and a tea kettle free!

Best of all (and something to really appreciate if you’re buying a 9lb item like this stockpot), if you use the code C98859 at checkout, you’ll get free shipping as well.

So, to sum up: a family-sized stockpot to last for years at nearly $100.00 off the regular price, a free saucier pan (and a kettle if you add another $70.00 0r more of Cuisinart open stock cookware to your order), plus free shipping.

How do you beat a deal like that? You don’t. You take advantage of it!
