NoOoooOooOoooOo! Why must all good things come to an end so quickly?
The Foundry, my most favored online purveyor of dirt-cheap MCM knock offs, is no more. It's been gobbled up by Hayneedle.com. They said over and over again that everything would be just the same and, like every other time that a business promises that there won't be any changes, there's been some major freakin' adjustments... for the worse. Yes, those words almost invariably mean that things are about to get either more expensive or more complicated. In this case, both transpired.
Hayneedle.com is a mess and their prices often go far north of retail. Bullet planters for $196? No, thanks. I can get them from the manufacturer, Hip Haven, for $150.
Ugh. This online shopper is not impressed.
Luckily, I got all of my bullet planter needs covered by the Foundry before things went down.
All of these bullet planters (plus one more not pictured) were brought to my doorstep for $90 TOTAL. Suck it, Hayneedle! I got some other great deals that I'll share with you later as well.
So, readers, what are your sources for the occasional guilty knock off purchase? Have any good ones that you'd like to share?
