Finding awesome pillows at a great price... like these black and white beauties my mom brought home.
You know what's not cool about HomeGoods? Finding these...
Pillows in the Magnolia Gootar fabric. This is the fabric I stalked for months, paid a pretty penny for, and just sent to the workroom for unique, one-of-a-kind, custom pillows.
Oh, the shock and horror I experienced when I saw these pillows on the HG shelf for a fraction of what I paid! Guess my pillows are no longer custom or unique :(
Here is the ottoman I had just gotten reupholstered in the same fabric.
Still waiting for my "custom" pillow :)
Well, I snatched up the only pair of Magnolia Gootar pillows at my local HG store. (Hope they don't get any more in.) What can I say? They were a bargain. And I think they'll look nice on my future wingback dining chairs.
The insanity continued when my mom and I were perusing the clearance shelves. My mother spotted a bowl exactly like the one on her kitchen table.
The problem: My mom bought her bowl in Turkey for over $100...
And, there it was on the HomeGoods clearance shelf for $29.99.
So, before you pick up any pottery on your next trip to Italy or Spain, you might want to check out your local HomeGoods first.
I found this little Italian dish for a steal :)
(The opinions expressed in this post are my own. HomeGoods did not pay me. But, I wish they had.)
