fine. a. lee.

holy crap. 
I have been waiting for this moment for almost a year. a whole year. shortly after I started The Bear Naked Truth, I mentioned that I was on the lookout for a look-a-like to the Samantha Bench from Pottery Barn.  

I even found a great option at Target, but they were sold out in the Espresso finish. I even asked for help from readers to find me a similar bench. this is how obsessed I've been with this bench.

luckily, my cute and thoughtful husband knows I've been WAITING for this bench to complete our entryway (which has a brand new stained door and tile entry, by the way... that post is coming soon), and he found this beaut on Amazon

according to Amazon, the product actually came from Target, and low and behold, there it is at Target, for the SAME marked down price as Amazon, which is weird to me, because I thought Amazon was supposed to be cheaper. guess not.

even better? Target is having a promotion where you get 10% off of your order if you spend $100 (expires 1/29/11) and another promotion of free shipping on orders over $50. 

so to sum things up, I got my dream bench for less than the cost of the original mark down. with the original price and cost of shipping and tax, I would have paid approximately $270 for it, and I got it for $160.27. 

Wednesday = WINSday.
