It's a good list, right? I've been good, and since I'm my own Santa, I figured I'd spoil myself a little. However, when I started shopping for pieces online, I was scratching my head wondering what the hell happened.
You see, a short 4-years ago, I ordered the three piece Happiness Pot set from Wisteria for a client:
The set of three was just $239, plus tax and shipping. I get that it was 4-years ago, and prices rise, but the same set of jars is a whopping $469 plus tax and shipping today! What made the price double? You can buy the jars individually, as well. Months after I ordered the set of 3 for one client, I ordered two of the tall jars for another client. They were a reasonable $99/each. The very same jar is now a headscratching $249. They used to sell the set of three for less than that!
So I started looking for another source, when I came across the very same pots from a major online retailer for SUBSTANTIALLY less money.
A $90 difference in price? For the SAME jar? And these aren't special prices from Frontgate, this is their everyday price! In fact, you can get the jar for cheaper than $159 right now, because they're offering 25% off the entire site! What gives?
If you're lucky enough to be able to shop wholesale for yourself with designer discounts, you could score the jar from Legend of Asia. But with the Frontgate promotion, it's even less - $119.25, and shipping is more reasonable!
With the Frontgate promotion, you're saving more than $25 on the wholesale price! Frontgate has some interesting pieces in their blue and white collection, too. Including this vase:
Love this, and just $159! A lot of these patterns are pretty recognizable, and if you have a collection like I do, finding new pieces with different patterns isn't always easy! However, I did find some really pretty and very interesting pieces on Amazon, which are larger, more unique, and cheaper than the Wisteria options, too!
I love this one with the unique leaf pattern at the bottom of the jar! 19" tall and just $199!
Look at how cool this one is! With foo dogs painted on it ,and a beautiful wood stand! 19" tall on this one, too and a SUPER reasonable $169!
I think that a pair of these would be great to fill in a collection of smaller scenic oriental jars. They're a STEAL too! Just $46.78 each, and nearly 19" tall!
So there are a few options for you, if you're looking for blue and white Chinese jars that won't break the bank! I've already ordered a couple for myself! Don't pay more when you don't have to!
