Everything shown in this post (except one item) are things I've been wanting but was waiting for to go on sale.
Taken from the site: "If your order is shipping within Canada and the total comes to $25.00 or more (after any coupons or discounts and before taxes), then simply select "Free Shipping" as your shipping method* when you're ready to checkout. It's that easy!
Parcels eligible for Free Shipping average a 3-9 day delivery."
This was the first time I've purchased from Chapter's online store. I always raid their online sale section but I never end up checking out. This time, however, there was one particular item I've been wanting for months that finally went on sale but was sold out in stores.
If I remember correctly, my package came within a week (my book came separately days after). Everything was packaged really well.
In the box was this glass jar I've been eyeing which finally went on sale for $7.50. I've always wanted a jar similar to the doctors office to hold cotton balls in but they were always so pricey. Yay for sales!
Another item I picked up was this zen tea cup. I randomly got it because I needed it to get my $25 free shipping haha, but I also did want a simple tea cup.
The next item was the main reason why I made the online order.
The Emma Bridgewater umbrella! You might have remembered me blogging about how I really wanted this months ago. And guess how much I got it for? $7.50. I'm so glad I waited! ^^
I was pleasantly surprised at how large it was for a fold-up umbrella. I love it!
The last item I got was George Orwell's 1984 book. I read this back in gr.11 and loved it so much. Ever since that time I wanted to own my own copy but never got around to getting it. But after seeing this cover, very simplistic, clean, yet able to capture the essence of the book, I figured it was the perfect time to get it.
