Fortunoff’s Misfortune

May 12th, 2009 · 5 Comments · Food, Gifts/Products

Fortunoff is going out of business. Fortunoff is like Macy’s or if you live in the south imagine Dillard’s. Today, my friend Nicole and I decided to take advantage of their sales. I went in search of a new oscillating fan for the upstairs but I soon found myself is shopper’s hog heaven. Everything was 60% off the regular price.¬† I needed a new frame for my wedding portrait. I found a lovely Reed and Barton tarnish-proof silver plated frame that had originally been $95.00 and I got it for $38.00.


A friend of the family is getting married in June and I found a beautiful Waterford silver-plated frame that had originally been  $80.00 for $32.00.


My last find was a set of 100% cotton, 800 thread count sheets for my king sized bed for only $52.00. These sheets feel like cool butter against your skin. I don’t think I will want to leave my bed tomorrow.


I did learn a valuable lesson today about final sale/no returns. I somehow managed to pick up a queen set instead of a king set and I realized it only after leaving the store. Luckily the queen and king sets were the same price, so they allowed me to exchange because there was no need for a transaction. If the king sheets had been more expensive, I would have been out of luck with getting the right size. Always check the size of sheets, because people move things around and don’t always put things back in their right place.

    Good deals! While it’s sad to see stores go, it’s great for getting bargains.

    I’ve never heard as high as 800 thread count. I am so jealous. Now I am bugging my wife to look on ebay and such. If you ever hear of 800 thread count for 50 bucks again be rad and email me!!!

    Sounds like a marvelous trip. This is exactly why I have to stay out of Dillard’s… or build up my restraint. The no return thing gets me every time!
