Outnet Birthday BUST!

April 16, 2010

The title of this post says it all. I was all pumped for the Outnet’s birthday celebration today — they were offering hundreds of pieces marked down, some from several thousand dollars to just $1. One of the catches — no one knew when the sale started so all were unprepared.

This, my friends, is an illustration of the parable of the early bird catches the worm — the sale started at 6:45 this morning. By the time I logged on at 7:25am, everything was unsurprisingly sold out. This party ended before it even started and I’m sure there will be much grumbling, and maybe even some outrage, making the rounds today.

I feel like I got invited to a fabulous soiree, showed up 2 minutes late, wasn’t allowed to get in, but was forced to sit and watch everyone who did have a great time. Way to go, Outnet, not sure if I’m going to be RSVPing for next year’s party anytime soon…

Anyway, let’s end this on an upbeat note, shall we? By of course, indulging ourselves in some fantasy, specifically in which we could have purchased any one of these lovely pieces in our size, for $1.
