Flash Sale Friday!

Flash Sale Friday
So don’t tell Mike (or my boss) but every Friday morning I come in to work with a Starbucks and browse the day’s flash sales while I wake up and get going for the day. It occurred to me this morning that I should share my favorite finds with y’all! And with that thought, Flash Sale Friday was born (cue the confetti!)

Keep in mind that flash sales only last a couple of days, and the good stuff sells out fast. So, if you see something you like, be sure to click on over and get it while you can.

This week’s sales are extra exciting because it’s Labor Day weekend (WOO!).  And, here are my favorite flash sales for today:

{FLASH SALE} Skyline Furniture Event: Joss & Main

They’ve got some super stylish beds, sofas and chairs at really great prices. In particular, I’m in love with the Hannah Upholstered bed in black.

Favorite Five: Fabulous Light Fixtures For Less

Fab-Five--Light-Fixtures-for-less

One of the easiest, quickest ways to make a dramatic change in your new home is to install new light fixtures.  You’d seriously be surprised at how immediately the entire feel of the room can change!

Nearly every room in my house has an old, generic ceiling fan… even the kitchen and dining room!  The lights that are not ceiling fans are super old and ugly–including the exterior lights–so all of them will be replaced at some point.

Since we’ll need to buy so many, I’ve been searching high and low for some really good deals.  Light fixtures are one of those things that are higher priced than they probably should be, and I happen to also be drawn to things that are enormously out of my budget! It never fails–I’ll finally find exactly what I have envisioned and it’ll be $2,600 instead of $250.  Grrrr.

So, I’ve already been doing all of this leg work, and it just wouldn’t be right if I didn’t share my findings!  Here are my Favorite Five places to find fabulous light fixtures at discounted prices:

1. Overstock.com

It might sound like an obvious one, but time after time I’ve had such good luck on Overstock! It’s really hit or miss, but if you’re patient and willing to look through the hundred of items, you’re likely to find your little gem at a ridiculous price.

2. Eurostylelighting.com

This is a new one I found! I’ve been on a mission to find some super cool mid-mod fixtures for both the dining and living rooms, and the selection on this site was unbeatable.  Mind you, they do definitely have some pricier items, Buuuut… I kept surfing the site and ended up getting our exterior fixtures at a lower price than  I had been seeing elsewhere.

3. Jossandmain.com

Have I mentioned yet how much I love Joss & Main? It’s similar to One King’s Lane, but I find the items to be priced better–OKL tends to be a little bit higher end. Plus, I think that the daily shops are a bit more repetitive than on Joss & Main.  When they have their lighting shops, you can find fixtures for half-off!

4. Amazon.com 

Okay, so another no-brainer, but if you haven’t checked it out already, do it!  As always, Amazon is so great at doing a lot of the leg work for you, and pulling in great priced items from around the net.  I ended up finding the perfect light here for my living room, at 60% off retail!

5.  Dotandbo.com

I love everything about this website, and the lighting is no exception! They have such cool mid-century-modern pieces, and at reasonable prices.  If you’re looking for a statement piece, this is where to get it.
