Okay fellow decor loving bees:
Just wondering what some of your favorite stores are & for what items.
Crate and Barrel. It’s too expensive for most every day things, but for decor & misc. items, it’s wonderful. Vases, Candlesticks, kitchen utensils… love!
Target. It’s my fall back for everything. Do I need a bathing suit, a bag of m&ms for a party or a toaster? It’s super for every day items & occasionally they will surprise you with affordable furniture. We get a lot of linens here. Got an awesome shower curtain for 30 dollars, all our towels & some window treatments.
TJMaxx/ Marshalls (Home Goods Stores). I love these places too. I’ll hit here before Target most times. I love this place for small furniture, glassware, kitchen items, lamps & gifts! We’ve gotten nice bedding here & cheap lingere even 🙂
JCPenney. Window treatments. Great costs, simple designs, easy to work with.
Bed Bath & Beyond. Everything else! Got our dishes & servingware here. Great for seasonal furniture or needs & amazing for random kitchen needs.
What are your favorite stores? And what do you buy there?

You know Jennifer, we have one about 25 minutes away, and I never think to go there for home decor, but everytime I do happen to go thru there, I see that they have wonderful deals.. perhaps I should pay closer attention…

Target and Ikea are great for inexpensive basics and furniture.. That’s usually my first stop when I’m redecorating.
Anthropologie, Z Gallerie, and Pottery Barn are totally swoon-worthy for decor pieces. They’re a bit pricier but sometimes it’s worth it.
Restoration Hardware is my pie-in-the-sky home decor place. Way too pricey for everyday use, but if I got rich the first thing I would do is go there and say “Decorate my house please!”

25 miles seems far for just a trip to Kohl’s! 🙂 So, whenever you’re in the area it’s worth checking out. They also always have great sales.
Ya know where else has some really cool, unique home accents- Urban Outfitter. And again, always a sale.

You hit all the good ones. I also love CB2, the less expensive sister store to Crate and Barrel.

MARSHALLS!!!! I just bought some amazing decorative dishes to display in a china hutch, a whole set for only $50! Great for flower pots too!!
Flea markets / Auctions!!! The options are endless with this one… especially at auctions you can find really neat antiques for suuuper cheap!
Craigslist is GREAT for furniture… we got our sofa’s on there for $400 and they retail for $1600!!!!!
and of course…. my FMIL’s attic! You’d be surprised what awesome little knick knacks some people will have, especially people who don’t throw anything away!
