I used to live in Boston, and worked near Faneuil Hall (yes, yes, I know, why did I move? sigh) and one of my favorite things to do at lunch was to wander over to Crate & Barrel in Quincy Market. It wasn’t so well known back then, but it was generally where you went to get household goods if you lived in the city and worried about paying your rent! I get very nostalgic when I think about the years I lived in Boston – when I miss my “youth”, that is what I miss – Boston in my twenties. I definitely want both of my children to experience living in a big city; there is nothing like it. Of course, it is never too late, one of the biggest trends in retirement these days is city living!
But back to Crate & Barrel who is having their Winter Clearance Sale right now. It’s a good one and worth checking out. Every year I try to find at least one ornament that I love so that I can open it when we put our Christmas tree up in what will probably seem like a few months. I love these Set of 3 Metallic Bell Ornaments and I especially love the price – $4.78!
Look at this adorable Tree Planter. I admit I have an obsession with trees and pine cones, but even if you didn’t, isn’t this really cute? Only $4.98!
There is much much more on the C&B site to consider. Have fun shopping bargain hunters!
