I discovered Cambria Cove about 2 years ago and have been madly in love with the store ever since. They offer such unique and pretty items that fed my design crush on all things beautiful + functional. When attending Altitude Summit in 2010, I felt like I had won the lottery when each conference attendee went home with a (gorgeous) gift box from the company, filled with spectacular goodies AND a gift certificate towards the online boutique. I decided to treat myself to a new laptop case for my then-brand new MacBook Pro:
I loved it then, and I love it now. It’s a little piece of luxury that goes with me when I travel. Since then, I have been relishing the time I spend leafing through the Cambria Cove catalogues and daydreaming about purchasing the matching rolling tote. At almost $300, it was out of my budget…until yesterday!
Over the weekend, hubby and I went on a quick overnight jaunt to Washington, VA (more on that in another post) and we happened across an adorable stylish home accents store, where I saw – in living color – the Le Cadeaux outdoor dinner entertaining pieces that I had been coveting from the Cambria Cove catalog for weeks:
We bought them (lots of them). YAY. But when we got back home, I decided to venture to the Cambria Cove site to see how we fared with pricing for the items. I was shocked and saddened to see this message:
And then I was elated. Because…my rolling tote was on super sale! I copped it in the wee hours of the night last night and thank goodness I did, because they are sold out of them today! I got that bad boy for $86. A far cry from $300. Hooray for clearance sales.
But not a good look overall because my beloved Cambria Cove will be no longer. I’m going to have to find a replacement boutique for my design fix. Any suggestions?
