Wottle Bottle

I think we all know that I LOVE Orla Kiely. I was checking out her site again this evening to come up with some birthday present suggestions for my friends and family. Apparently I'm a "hard person to shop for". Soooo, I'm drooling over some of her leather bags (holy, moly they are expensive!) and then I click over to the kitchen section. What do I find?

And it's only 8 pounds (UK dollars, not lbs.) I immediately add it to my cart and start checking out...but, then comes the shipping...
35 pounds!!!!!

What?? No way! There is NO WAY that it costs that much to send a lightweight plastic bottle from the UK to Georgia. Trust me, I know shipping rates. It's kind of what I do.

So, what did I do next?

What every good shopper/retail-aholic does. I "ebay-ed" it. Found "it" brand new for about $10. I'm a little curious to see if it's real...hoping it is, but won't be disappointed if it's not.

I'll let you know how my search for the Wottle Bottle comes out. Part of me wants it just because of the name. Wottle bottle. Hehe. :)

Have a lovely evening!

  1. I'm glad to know there are other crazy e-bayers out there. I do that with everything.

  2. 35 pounds?! No way! I can't wait to see your $10 Wottle Bottle!!

  3. My boyfriend ruined it by telling me that it was one of those harmful plastic water bottles...oh well. Maybe I'll just use it as a vase... :)
