Leave it to furniture store Simple Things to concoct a rather perfect flash sale. Every Friday morning via email, the west Fort Worth store offers an item for sale. The furnishings vary and, of course, fit the eclectic aesthetic for which the store is known. Previous sales have featured a formal upholstered swivel chair, a metal French baker's table and a cowhide slipper chair. But the best part? The items are up to 90 percent off! So that cowhide chair was $2,190 and a lucky buyer got it for $250. Want to land the coveted merchandise? Simply sign up on the store's blog, and once you get that weekly email, contact the store immediately.
