I think I have probably spoken about this before, but there is always a great delight in coming across store and vendors that you have dismissed for any variety of reasons, and then rediscover them as if they were new. Well That is the case with Pier 1. They are usually off my radar, for any number of reasons, but this season, they have come up with some really cool outdoor pieces. The french wire table and chairs are great, and at a less than $200 are a bargain (compare similar at Anthropologie for almost $900!).
The colorful garden stools are great too, I like how cheery they look, and the pagoda umbrella is a not to be missed item.
LOL don't get me started on the no Internet sales ability, but at these prices I want to go to the store and see what else is there.
