Last summer as I perused the isles at T.J. Maxx, I noticed they had the best lanterns and for pretty reasonable prices too. The day I went I didn't end up purchasing any, but by the time I made it to the store again, the options were pretty slim. This year I was determined to get me a lantern - a BIG lantern. I stopped in at a T.J. Maxx / Home Goods store last week and was just browsing when I came across THE lantern.
I was a little leery about the price, but when I picked it up and saw the red sticker on the bottom, I was pleasantly surprised to see it was only $10.00 marked down from $29.99. Sweet. So I snatched it up. I assume it was on clearance since it was missing the glass on the sides - but that was fine with me because I was going to put it outside anyways. I can just see a soccer ball flying through the air and landing right on my pretty lantern shattering it to pieces. So no glass - even better.
I haven't decided what to put in it - a candle, a plant, decor, but for now I'm just happy to have a BIG lantern. That's my sweet deal for the week. What about you - any clearance goodness this week?
