I waited and waited until the perfect counter stools popped up in the store. These stools I picked up are listed online for $220 CDN (plus shipping of course). Homesense price: $99. What a steal! I bought 2 for my breakfast counter and I just love them. Easy to clean too, because when you have 5 kids ,you never know what may happen. They also swivel, and have metal footrests which is quite nice. I also picked up a cotton table runner for the kitchen and a pair of lamps for the dining room. The lamps didn't look as good as thought on the server...so, going to return them.
