Hello! Today there is something I would like to share. It is a shopping secret. For those of you who have an aversion to online shopping, you probably will not get as excited as me, but hear me out. I am an avid online shopper. I buy so many things online these days. Amazon prime is one of my best friends – best money I have ever spent! How cool to be able to have a random thought pop into my head “oh no! we are almost out of diapers!” and then a few clicks on my smart phone later and they arrive on my doorstep with free shipping. Besides all of the convenience factors for those working moms, busy folks and people who live in small towns with fewer stores, I just like the variety and great deals you can find. Who doesn’t like to know a good shopping secret here and there?
The sites I wanted to highlight are One Kings Lane and Joss & Main. These are sites I visit daily. I have bought rugs, mirrors, artwork, accessories, and have never had one single hiccup in customer service. How it works is you sign up (free) and receive daily emails about their sale events. These sale events are very random, but mostly home stuff. The catch is that the sale events only last about 72 hours and they sell out fast! You have to keep an eye on them and snag things with a quickness. Rugs are crazy cheap here! I mean, there are the occasional “sales” that seem like they are only for the rich and famous, but for the most part you can find some amazing deals. The best way to describe these sites is a TJ Maxx on steroids but you do not have to stand in line and they have way more stuff
Today, at One Kings Lane, I found these beauties. They are framed pieces of art made of ribbon and fabric scraps! I am so very excited. Hanging on a white wall, I think they will be perfect. The bold colors layered on the muslin colored background with the black frames is exactly what I am looking for as far as combining the oldness of the house with the newness I love.
Another thing I snagged was this little table set for Sullivan. He has a little table and chair set from Ikea that is adorable, but honestly has not held up. I only paid $19 for the set, so I got way more use out of it than I thought I would get. This will sit in a little nook space in the big family room and will be a place for him to color, eat, and act like a big boy at his fancy table!
Well there you go! I hope you will all find some great deals at these sites. There are wonderful gift items, random things like beach chairs, towels, glassware, and just some serious awesomeness
