Well, well, well. Mom and I had the most fabulous day yesterday at the preview of the Vietri Fall Warehouse Sale. From the amazing prices to the incredible selection of items to the endless commentary provided by my mother, the day was an enormous success. I scored major steals and bought wedding gifts, Christmas gifts, hostess gifts, and even a gift for myself. Shocked, I’m sure.
You know how on Christmas morning the parents are often times just as excited as the kids because they know the kids will get so excited once they open all of their gifts? That’s how I was. I couldn’t wait for my mom to see all of the fantastic things that Vietri had to offer at the Warehouse Sale. And you know how kids get super excited when they see all of their gifts on Christmas morning? That’s how my mom was.
“Oh my GOODNESS!” she exclaimed with delight as we walked into the first ginormous warehouse space. “There is so much stuff!”
“Just wait,” I replied. “There’s two other rooms just like this.”
And so it went — we skipped around the warehouse and grinned at the amazing pieces and shrieked every time we found something new and incredible.
A few times we got separated from each other, but I always found Mom because I’d hear a shrill “ANNA!” to which I responded, “MOM!” Any other time yelling at each other like this would mean we were mad at each other — probably because Mom told me to stop cussing on the blog again — but this time it meant GET YOUR BUTT OVER HERE NOW AND LOOK AT WHAT I HAVE!
It was so awesome and fun. I love my mom.
I’d eat biscotti out of one of these.
Love these turquoise pieces.
“Anna stop taking pictures of me.”
The view from my shopping cart.
I love these pieces as an extra set to enhance simple white bone china. I’m thinking Easter brunch, the leaf salad plates stacked on white dinner plates with the orange table napkins below… I die. Wilson stop rolling your eyes.
I bought the orange napkins above at the last sale and love them.
My favorite color. These are awesome garden pots to use indoors or outdoors. I’m not sure I could part with them to let them live outside though. I’d worry about them catching a cold in the winter. Or, heaven forbid, getting dirty.
More aqua. This is Vietri’s uber-popular Lastra collection, all majorly discounted and in a gorgeous light light aqua. Really beautiful, heavy pieces.
Iconic Vietri pieces. Mom asked five times, “OK Anna, are you sure I don’t need one of these plates? Like what about in the kitchen?” She already has five plates hanging on the kitchen walls.
More Lastra, white this time. “Mom, don’t I need this bowl for when I make soup?”
“Anna, you don’t know how to make soup.”
I was wearing white pants because it was Wilson’s birthday. Jk.
“Love that cake plate. Do I need one of those?”
She already has two cake stands.
Look at the little feet!
I loved this new part of the #warehousesale. They had great gifts organized by price, starting at Under $20. You know I love a good Under $x feature.
Mom: “Anna I think I need one of these plates.”
Another great part of the sale was the vast selection of Christmas pieces. Look at these cute Christmas sets!
“Anna seriously stop taking pictures of me.”
“You can’t post these pictures of me on the blog.”
Why yes, I do need Santa to hold my cocktail, thank you Vietri.
“Anna don’t get my face in the picture.”
SANTA! I KNOW HIM!
Seriously how cute is she?
The #warehousesale also included a ton of high quality furniture pieces. We got lotssss of good stuff from this side of the sale too.
I convinced Mom she had to buy this. Mom, how much did you want me to say it cost in front of Dad? Oh yea, it cost $25. Almost.
So this stool really was $25. We got two. It will be perfect to recover. Can you believe this thing was only $25??
See her face? Kid on Christmas morning, right?
I thought these were such interesting lamps. If my apartment were 20 times larger and had a black and white theme, I would have taken them home with me.
All in all, it was an amazing day. Mom and I loved spending time with each other and making tons of great purchases for our friends, family, and selves… Hehe.
