First off I need to start by saying that there are no product affiliate links on this article. I have links to the two teapots, but if you go visit one or the other, I do not make any money. I wrote this because I could not believe the bargain I found.
I asked my daughter what she wanted for her birthday and she said she wanted a cast iron teapot. She sent me a suggestion for what she wanted. It was a purple pot, but she said if possible, she wanted blue or teal, not purple. I nearly lost it when I saw the price tag of $149.99. I am positive that this teapot is of the highest quality and will last a lifetime, but wow.
Here is a link to the teapot she wanted.
I did not post a photo of the pot because I did not buy it.
I was out shopping one day and scooted into World Market to look at their wall art. I walked past a display of teapots. They had a cast iron teapot for $12.49 and it was teal, not purple. I snapped it up and took it to the register and it rang up $10.99. I leaned forward and told the cashier that the sign said $12.49 and it was already a bargain at that price. She said, "Oh, they are extra off today only".
I could not believe the bargain. They have a lot of other teapots. She loves her teapot and when I confessed that I did not spend $149 on it, she was perfectly ok with it. She said it was very pretty and she loves it.
