It's Back!!

Yes, Ballard Designs has brought back the Atoll Mirror.


Many thanks to Lisa Barnes, Vice President of Customer Care, for all her help and quick replies to my e-mails. She said they were having trouble with shipping, but hoped to have the mirror back in circulation by November. Then yesterday two of my readers contacted me to say it is already back online with an August 15 ship date. Yeah!! Thank you Ballard Designs! And thank you to of of you who called and e-mailed!!! Ballard's listened to you!


I also want to thank my observant readers Gindy and Margaret. Without them I would have been hanging out waiting for November. Of course, my plan was to have my family buy it for my Christmas present, so now I have to cough up the dough myself. Hey, it's worth it. Don't you think? Are you going to order one?

  11. Love!! Although I do wish it was $199 and not $299. For some reason that seems so much more palatable!

  12. Wow- I am impressed!!! I tried to order the Ballard Bendetta Dining Table in rubbed black yesterday but sadly it was unavailable in this finish... so I emailed customer service and they said they had no plans of making it available again... What is your secret? I really want this table! I think I'll order an Atoll while I'm waiting...

  16. I can't wait to order now for over my fireplace! I'd been searching Oly's website when I saw your post and knew this was a MUCH more palatable price than an Oly mirror... kudos to you and your persistence so that I can now have my mirror I want!!!!

  19. No Sissy..THANK YOU!!! The image of the Atoll mirror has been sitting in my style file for-ev-ER. Without your post & follow up with Ballard, I'd be out of luck. I usually wait it out until the price is right but not this time. Thanks for the motivation...:)

  20. So funny! I just blogged about this MIA mirror earlier this week. What a great surprise to find that it is back in circulation. Now I guess I have to bite the bullet and actually buy it....Thanks for the heads up!

  21. so excited for you! I'll still keep a look out at the outlet for you (that is where I got mine for a steal!) Maybe someone will return one with an itty-bitty scratch. (this is Julie Holloway--I need to learn how to post non-anonymously!)
