Savings

There is a store that carries some of the prettiest Ikat I have seen. However…and yes However. I am on the look out to save a few ends, and help yall save to. So I went looking online to see what I could find. What you see below is an example.

Now to be honest. I think they are the SAME pillow. These are the two I purchased from an Ebay seller. I will be the quality judge once they arrive. But based on what I have read on both sites, the items are the same material. 50% silk and 50% cotton.

Look at what they have to offer!

Have you ever purchased any pillows from either store?

Tam - I really have to say thanks for this post. You and your mad eBay skills are nothing to be messed with! I love this seller's offerrings and I have been looking for affordable pillow cover options forEVER. This is a done deal. And the reasonable shipping? Icing on the cake.
And then finding out said cake is fat/calorie free!

Also - doesn't it make you a little annoyed that these "online stores" have such a hefty markup?

oops - forgot to mention, the Ikat pillow I sewed for my living room cost me only $3.00...shopping for low priced fabric is also an option

Wow - they are identical!! Thank you so much for this resource. I am going to order a pair right away.

Sara @ Russet Street Reno said...

Wow, they do have a lot of pretty ones! Too bad the seller is really far away, I don't know if I can wait 10-15 days to get my goods!

That is a great find! and yes they do have great decorative pillows, but I'm a kinda right now kinda person for stuff like that and don't want to wait for them to be shipped.

What a good find. I love those.

You are always finding the greatest things. These pillows are great. I need to change out the ones on my couch and in my bedroom, these would be fun. You'll have to let us know how the quality is when they come.

Dang you hit the jackpot on this one! I love a ton of their pillow sets. And talk about affordable. I haven't tried either sellers/stores, but as cheap as the ebay set is it wouldn't be a killer on the wallet if the pillows weren't up to par.

nerdgirlms said...

Thanks for the info!

I read your site almost daily. Not sure I've ever commented. Anyhow, just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your spot. You've got a great sense of style!

Tamstyles said...

I see yall have reservation about the waiting..I am that way to, but I can wait for a deal...The online store would take maybe 5-7 days I am sure...and the other company shipped them to me the next day so should not take long...And i cant sew for anything in the world Mrs. Chic....this is my only option.

It pays to look around...you did the right thing in looking on Ebay. Heck, I didn't even think about looking there for Ikats. Thank you for opening my eyes...your choices are super.

Jen of Made By Girl said...

Ok, i just ordered 2...woo hoo!

Monica said...

I just ordered two sets as well. Thanks so much for posting this!

Misty said...

Is it just me??? I cannot find an ebay name or link to buy these pillows???

Brooke said...

i am going for the bargins as usual!
