Mike and I popped into a swish bedding store on the weekend in search of a sheet set to go with our amazing new crewel-work duvet cover. We found an expensive set of ivory sheets marked down 25 per cent but not even the discount made them affordable. This got me thinking about my discount standards and I came to the conclusion that generally speaking, I need to be saving at least 30 per cent off the suggested retail price before I’ll reach for my wallet. How about you? How big a price break do you require before your trigger finger gets itchy?
As for the new duvet set, Richard Cope the proprietor of Cose di Casa, gave me an extraordinarily good deal because he himself is in the process of moving and the more inventory he sells, the less he’ll have to haul around the corner to his new digs (more on that later). I also bought some fantastic Ikat linen panels that will likely become roman blinds in the new apartment. What do you think about the new bedspread? Too strong?
I note with some satisfaction that this is my 500th post on styleNorth. Holy smokes! I have to say I’m enjoying the less rigorous posting schedule and I’m thrilled that you keep coming back. Thanks for reading!
