Run, Don't Walk, To Your Nearest Dollar Tree!

Image Source
Lately, I've become a little obsessed with Pottery Barn and their Emma Collection dinnerware.  The beaded detail makes me really happy!  Sadly, their prices do not.  For a family of 4, the 20- piece set would have cost around $150, plus shipping.

So, imagine my surprise as I browsed around Dollar Tree and spotted these!  Woo to the Hoo!  I couldn't believe my eyes!  I shoved as much as I could into two hands and walked fast to the register.  I had to make a second trip to grab the mugs.  I planned to purchase 6 to complete the set, but the few that were left were chipped.  Hopefully, while I'm out and about this week I can find 4 more.  Unless of course, there are more Pottery Barn obsessed, Emma Dinnerware Collection lovin' folks, living in my area! 





So let's do the math, shall we?!  6 dinner plates, 6 soup bowls and let's assume I'll find 4 more mugs.  $18!  Pottery Barn- much, much more! : )

  7. Oh Brandi that was a score, I would love to buy some too. I'll have to sneak them in the house though. Every time I buy new stemware, plates or anything related to dining my family launches a huge protest. What do the know? just because we're running out of space...what? when did that ever stop anyone LOL. I'm going to read your guest post, cant wait to see your new kitchen.

  20. Yep, we have some still left (I work PT at the DT) they had them right in front but not for long they must have sold alot because what is left is back in the dish asile. I think they look like they came from Macy's or any high end store! Glad you are so happy with them!

  21. Your new white dinner ware is beautiful! We just got a Dollar Tree and I think I saw those in there. I was going to wait until IKEA came to town to purchase white dinner ware, now I'm not so sure!
    I love those!
    Hugs, Cindy

  37. I have seen the most amazing dishes at the dollar store too, but this takes the cake! They're gorgeous! I think this is the place to shop for young couples or singles just moving into their first place. It just goes to show you, you don't have to spend like a millionaire to live like one ;) Well spotted!
