Great Finds at Pier 1

Last night, as I was driving home with my new pair of nighttime driving glasses (I am getting old and blind, apparently), I took a spur-of-the-moment detour into Pier 1 before stopping at Publix. I am SUCH a Pier 1 addict, and I saw a bunch of things I wanted to share with you in case you haven't gone deal-shopping there recently. They have some amazing finds, especially if you are willing to look.

Note: These are all camera phone shots. I was in the moment and didn't have a real camera with me, sorry :)

First up, their stemware. This display is usually right up front with a variety of styles. My favorite, though, are these, mostly because holy cow, they are only $2.50 a piece. Compared to the lightweight kind that I have from IKEA, these sturdier, more masculine glasses are much more durable. Confession: I have totally gifted these to men who needed wine glasses for when people (ok, me) came over that wanted to drink wine :P

Can you believe these mini ramekins are only $1/each? Adorable. Perfect for mini creme brulee.

So cute - these nested ceramic measuring cups reminded me of a post I saw on one of my fav blogs, Marriage Confessions. These ones were on sale for $11.95.

The red sale tags at Pier 1 right now are insane. They are everywhere! Check out these cute Flour containers for $5.98. They also have Sugar and Cookie ones.

Note to self: Don't attempt to find good tablecloths and placemats anywhere else again. This section is HUGE and oh so affordable to supply the next dinner party you want to throw.

And then this one is just random. At the back of Pier 1, they have a great assortment of (affordable) creative art. This reminded me of my green bedroom theme, so it caught my eye. Very cool and only $50.

Do you shop at Pier 1? What bargains have you found there that you loved?

Try going to the Pier 1 outlet store on Jimmy Carter. Even better deals than the regular store!

Also, if you're on their mailing list, you'll get coupons to add to the discounts!
