I love Ace Hardware at Christmas time. Really, anytime of the year. They ALWAYS have cute house stuff and I prefer it WAY over Lowes or Home Depot... those places are so overwhelming... can I get a witness?
Yesterday was "Friends and Family Day" and if you have an Ace Card, you got 20% off of almost ANYTHING! I was thrilled, especially since I was not able to go to the open house last weekend. Plus, I had a $5 gift card from my Ace points and a $5 off $20 coupon! SCORE! I actually went to 2 stores and had a lot of trouble not blowing all my money there. They had the cutest stuff, my SIL got a really cute "Merry Christmas Yall" soap dispenser and a few other things. Here is what I got. (Sorry about the terrible pictures)
This is a plaque that I can hang or put in a plate stand. I just loved it!
And this was 25% off plus another 20% off. I have had my eye on him for a while now!
I also got ribbon for my tree!
It is a natural linen and I got 25 yards for like $10. Not too shabby. I cant wait to put all my Christmas stuff up. I am a little surprised at how many people have put there stuff out.... I am dying to... but I am holding out until Thanksgiving, poor thing, gets overlooked every year! HA
