Pays to wait sometimes...

There is this Disney Mickey lamp post I've wanted forever to go with all my Disney Christmas Stuff. Well for the last couple of years I've been eyeing it. Normally these sell for 279.99...But I've also checked online from time to time and JCP had them marked down to 139.99. I almost bought it but then decided against it...still kinda thought it was a bit much, and I am soooo glad I did. A few days after Christmas I went grocery shopping and decided for kicks I'd check JCP at the mall. They had them there and marked down to 69.99!!!!!!!!! I didn't think twice nor blink before I was slidding my debit card...*L* Can't wait to set it up next year!!
Here's a pic.

That is cute! You are like me, I always wait it out for something I want to go on sale. Sometimes it takes months though but worth it.

No..I am thinking indoors. For the original price of this thing it's not strong enough to uphold the winds around this area. Plus our forever changing weather would more than likely do damage to (ie: -25 degrees etc would possible crack the head on it) I can't even use my inflatables around here. My blowmolds do pretty well thou.

Wish I had seen this before heading into town today! We could have looked for one in the local JC Penny's.
