Wednesday Steal: Bridal Buzz

With the Royal Wedding coming up everyone’s attention is on everything English.  My mother told me how my great grandmother each day served 4 o’clock tea.   Having been a school teacher on the prairie, it impressed me that she incorporated this tradition into what was an unconventional life.

This 5 piece Beehive Tea Set by Towle® from Mikasa carries on that tradition with a definite flare.  It’s style fits any decor and would definitely make a statement.  Nickel-plated and whimsical,  this is  an heirloom in the making, and edit is bargain priced at $49.95, mrsp. $255.00.   It– includes a honey pot with spoon–how cute is that!

A perfect gift for a springtime or summer wedding that will make any couple feel like royalty on that special day!  Free Shipping on purchases of $99 or more.

Wednesday Steal: Zip It Up!

Have you noticed the latest fad in fashion is the unhidden zipper?  Pre-hippie era, all the dresses either were fitted with a back zipper and/or buttons and the familiar question to your significant other was:  “Can you zip me up?”  Zippers were also on the side of skirts, front flap of pants, and even on some blouses.  However, zippers were all hidden, sh-h-h big secret!

More contemporary designs have seen zippers galore in handbags, shoes, and some jewelry.  Now they have come out of hiding and are reappearing and hotter than before.  You can find them on motorcycle jackets and sweaters, dresses and tops, out-in-the-open and part of the design.  Popular first with celebs, now we can all wear them!

Filler Up & Get Free Super Savings On Shipping!

The only thing that peeves us shopping online is paying shipping and handling–am I right?  Sometimes the shipping is more than the price of your purchase.  And how many times do you miss qualifying for free shipping by a buck or two, or even less?  Oh, so close, but no cigar!

Well, for one online giant, this problem has been solved or somewhat mitigated. A new search engine  Filler Item will tell you how much you are short for qualifying for super saving free shipping from Amazon.  Put the amount you need to spend to get to $25 in the box, and then check the boxes for the product category you’d be interested in.  It will search for items to reach the amount you need and list only those that will qualify for the super saver free shipping.

Rather than paying that hefty shipping fee that you can’t see or touch, find a little item with your change for a stocking stuffer for birthdays, special events, holidays–or add it to your package wrapping –the recipient will be totally stoked!  Don’t worry about remembering this tip, Markdown Mom has put it on her “SHOPPING” page, so you just have to click it when you make your purchase.
