Black Friday is less than two weeks away, but the most serious shoppers know that the deals have been going on all month. In fact, many of the early sales are just as good, if not better, than the “official” Black Friday ones. Such is the case at West Elm, which has been killing it lately with too-good-to-believe discounts on everything from furniture and rugs to bedding and decor. But now, thanks to a wise shopper we spotted on Instagram, we’ve discovered the best deal of them all: a 26-piece flatware set that’s on sale for $26.

What’s going on here? A West Elm deal that’s as good as one you’d find at the Dollar Store? What is real? We don’t know, but we’re not questioning it. The flatware set in question is the Essential Set, and includes 8 knives, 8 spoons, 8 forks, 1 serving spoon, and 1 serving fork. Each piece is made of stainless steel and has a slender design that feels more modern than your classic cutlery. It’s an unfussy, simple set that’s worth the investment even when not on sale. (And you can also purchase individual knife, spoon, and fork sets if you don’t want everything.)

Now let’s talk about how the price is possible. The 26-piece set typically goes for $98—a lot of money, but overall fine for a good quality set. Then, it went on sale, and kept going on sale, until it was down to $34.99 (64 percent off). That’s already a major bargain, but then West Elm dropped their Pre-Black Friday Sale, which, by the way, you need to check out if you haven’t already. In addition to the up to 40 percent off bedding, decor, rugs, and more, they’re also offering an extra 30 percent off clearance and free shipping with code SWEET.

With that extra 30 percent off, the price is knocked down to $24.49, then with tax the total cost is $26.66. It’s a holiday miracle, and we’re ready to believe again. The best part is that this is actually a flatware set you’ll use every day, unlike other “trendy” sets that you want to reserve for special occasions. It’s the kind of flatware that’s beautiful and well-made, but maybe not special enough to drop almost $100 on, especially considering the lower prices for everyday cutlery at other retailers. It is, however, absolutely worth jumping on now.
