Phrugal Philomena: Spring Outdoor Spectacular!

Gentle Readers, are we very much mistaken or has Spring finally arrived? Some of us will step out in our Easter bonnets with all the frills upon it this very Sunday. We here at the Philomena Herald are on the hunt, but not for eggs– instead, as promised, the second part of our Happy Housewarming segment is all about delightful deals and beauteous bargains for decorating outside your home, found in all the catalogs (the Marketplace). Before we hop hop hop in, allow us to reiterate the guidelines:

  • All items are under L$100 at time of posting (do remember that vendors may change their prices at any time).
  • If an item is No Copy, it shall not go in our basket!
  • Items should fit within the aesthetic of our community (1910-1919 small town America).
  • As always, let the Buyer Beware. We at the Herald have not tested these items, we merely share the links to them.

Now then, we have a LOT to cover this issue, so let us delay no longer!
