Friday (sort of) Finds (Mostly) Under Fifty: The Get Ready for Next Christmas Edition

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
icon, Kurt Adler Polonaise
icon, Michael Storrings for Landmark Creations
icon, and even Versace
icon are being blown out at prices that will allow you to play Santa for your nearest and dearest. Twistie’s pick? This:

Jay Strongwater Sultana Egg Ornament 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.

Vibrant Versace or Chocolate Consolation

You can put flowers in any vase. They’ll look great, and they’ll smell good. But why put your flowers in any old vase when you can put them in this:

Versace La Mer Vase This is the La Mer vase by Versace. It’s porcelain painted with a fun mix of classic aquatic images, such as coral branches and golden shells. It stands 7″ high to hold a wide variety of blooms, or to simply be superfantastic in its empty state.

If you want it as much as I do, you’ll be delighted to know it’s on sale at Saks Fifth Ave. Regularly priced at $268.00, it’s currently selling for just $201.00. You can even get free shipping with the code SAKSSHIP9.

Of course, if the year has been financially unfortunate for you, you still may not be able to afford the lovely Versace vase. In that case, may I offer up this second delightful deal from Saks?

Chocolate Shoe and Purse After all, what woman doesn’t feel better with a stylish set of matching shoes and purse? And what woman wouldn’t feel even better if they’re made of chocolate? At that point, even if you don’t care about matching shoes and purses, it still appeals.

Regularly priced at $52.00, they’ve been marked down to just $32.00 for the season.

Of course, there’s nothing to stop you getting both, if you like.

Grapes of Wrap

Is there a man in your life who loves grapes? Wine? Really great ties? Are you that man?

Either way, you should go to the Raffaello Network right now and take a look at this really great grape tie by Gianni Versace:

Versace Grape Tie Made of 100% top quality premium silk, it’s a classic midnight blue with bunches of violet grapes with emerald green leaves on it. From the boardroom to the dining room, it will look both dignified and easy going.

And for those concerned with such matters, it comes with an authenticity card with a high-security Versace hologram. Me? I prefer to concern myself not with its authenticity, but with it’s awesome. Still, it’s certainly better than accidentally supporting illegal knock-off vendors.

One thing I know we can all agree on is that Raffaello Network has it at a great price. Normally they carry this tie for $99.00, but right now it can be yours (or you guy’s) for a mere $69.00!

You certainly wouldn’t have to ply me with the fruit of the vine to get me to agree to that price.
