A Penny For Your Pot?


So, here it is...the first posting of Double Delight Designs. While I am chomping at the bit to get out my Fall decor...I am put off by the fact that it is still predicted to hit the 100's. So, I decided instead to post about my newest cheaply acquired item. I was at Home Depot the other day buying rose food and I came across this beauty of a pot. It had a small chip, as shown here, on the bottom and was discounted to $15 from $22.

Knowing that it would look great on my entry table, I took it up to the cashier and asked if it could be discounted any further due to the chip. She said, "Sure, how about a penny?" Needless to say, the beautiful brown pot has summoned in a little Fall...along with his friend Twiggy Pumpkin and has made my entry table warm and cozy. So, my question to you is do you ask for discounts? I once heard on an Oprah show that you should always ask, so I have put that to the test and have even been given discounts at discount stores!


Happy Fall everyone! Now go and get yourself a discount!

This is really fun that you have a blog. I have two and love it. It will be fun to follow you. My blog is begines.blogspot.com
I can't wait till the weather is colder, so I will feel like decorating for fall. It is probably more like fall here than Fresno!!
Take care and look forward to more posts:)

I can't believe that you got this gorgeous pot for a penny! Ask that cashier to come work at my HD will ya?

A penny??? Wow!


I need to start asking for discounts.


And I love the SLAH candlestick thingies. Now that Fall is here, I highly recommend filling them with candy corns.

The only problem with that is how often I have to refill mine. :-)
