The Savvy Shopper

I knew that would get your attention! No one loves a sale better than me!
PALM PATIO & Outdoor Kitchens is clearing out all their patio furniture and accessories getting ready to move to their new location on Metro where they will specialize in custom outdoor kitchens and outdoor fireplaces. I went in to find a new umbrella for our patio table. Everything in the store is 50 to 75% off!! I didn't find what I had in mind but did find lots of bargains.
They had the cutest thatched umbrellas that made you feel like you were on one of the islands, one had built-in lights that you could control with a remote built in the pole and make them dance or hold them steady, really clever! It was on sale for $199. Or, a thatched without the lights at $149. You could dine alfresco, my favorite, as there were plenty of tables with four chairs priced from $499. Wicker, glass or a whole collection of Eucalyptus wood, table and four also $499. An assortment of bars with high stools, pub tables, chaises all in Eucalyptus and all on sale!
Bill Sandifer is the owner and was very helpful pointing out all the good buys. More bargains....a three loop towel holder for poolside, down to $15. Serving carts all 75% off at $199. Outdoor lamps, $60, and some with a larger table and built in magazine rack, $75. All kinds of clever wall art 75% off including weather proof pictures. Colorful place mats 50 to 75% off. A great gas fire pit that comes on with a flick of the finger for $399. A beautiful, beautiful gas fireplace for outdoors was $9,999. NOW $2500! Wish I would have seen that before we built our house! BIG savings!!
Silk trees 75% off, clock/thermometers and regular thermometers also 75% off. The thing that intrigued me most were the outdoor candles that won't blow out with the wind, a package of 3 only $3.25. He sells little metal stands that you can put them in. What a welcome way to start a party, line your sidewalk with them. Or as I do, put them all around the pool for an awesome effect. My bargain pick of the day was a fitted picnic basket that had been $50, for just $12.50!! Course I'm a pansy for picnics!!
When Bill moves he will have THE store you will want to visit if you are considering an outdoor kitchen or fireplace. We love ours!! He will custom fit a grill, fridge, wine cooler, sink, whatever you want, to fit your space, all in a design just for you. He has a nice display of granite to top it off. Oh Yes! He sells granite cleaner and granite sealer, at this sale it was 50 percent off, I bought some of that. A fireplace outdoors is a big investment but I can tell you first hand it is worth it! In the fall and winter months it is so cozy to have it on and all the sliders open. What's not to love!
The sale is going on now at Palm Patio and Outdoor Kitchens at 11850 S. Cleveland Av. (US41) Ft. Myers. Just before Haverty's. Bill's new store for outdoor kitchens will be at 3120 Metro Parkway in Ft. Myers. His phone number is 239-278-0050.
Take your pick-up truck and get on down there while the pickin's good!!
