more spotting of the general sort at homegoods

i went searching for a white coverlet, and although i struck out with that, i did spot these great finds
homegoods
i swear, i'll never buy expensive lamps again. both of the top two, less than $40 each.
and they had these huge Moroccan style lanterns - see the red thom flicia style one? it was 3 feet tall!
gorgeous geode bookends - picture doesn't do it justice
and that industrial looking cabinet- $249
a pair of those silver task lamps - they were BIG! - for $30 each
and again, pictures aren't really selling it, but white and red faux croc trays were good looking and the leather trunks were cheesy at all, but actually rather genuine looking.

I just got two geode bookends there! I've been looking on ebay for years for an affordable set. The set at Homegoods - $26! LOVE that place.

So cute!! Try Belks for the coverlets. I was on the hunt for the exact same thing last week, and after striking out at all the usual suspects (Marshalls and TJ Maxx included), good ole Belks had tons and tons and tons of them on sale.

HG makes me want to pee my pants! I'm with you on the lamps - saw one of those white, porcelain parrot numbers like Horchow runs for $500 - $99 at HG - GET OUT!

I've also spied my Z Gallerie foo dogs there - for half what I paid.
Overall, that store is the shiznit.

Gah I am wickedly jealous. The nearest Home Goods is in Portland OR (I'm in Seattle). However, no sales tax in Oregon... maybe this is ok afterall?! Roadtrip!

On my list of places to go this weekend for sure.

I wish my Homegoods was as on trend as yours. Mine just has a bunch of Tuscan crap for the most part.

Jennifer said...

Homegoods is the bomb!

Paloma - don't you live in Houston? (love your blog too) If so, check out the Homegoods at Eldridge and Westheimer. It's worth the drive. I was there yesterday and would say I saw about 80% of what Jamie just posted pictures of. -Allie

I LOVE my gorgeous lamp from TJ's. Actually it's two lamps. Liked the base from one and the shade from another. Still: under $80!

Great finds, Jamie!

ms. less is always more said...

clearly Home Goods is what is missing in my life. I don't think we have one close.

ArchitectDesign™ said...

I'm always about the great finds at the discount stores! Why pay more (isn't that someone's logo?).

CCB said...

THAT'S IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i am going to homegoods tomorrow. i have been looking for some hollywood regency cutout lamps for a while now.

Beth said...

Yay for Homegoods! I was at TJ Maxx today and saw that silver lamp. Loved it! And I actually have 2 lamps very similar to the white ones that I got there a while back! Love your blog!

Emily said...

Sometimes you have to dig a bit, but it's well worth it. The lamp section never ceases to amaze me. Same with the bedding. And dishes...

Peacock Feathers said...

I'm so with you on HomeGoods! They have such chic, inexpensive pieces. I found a very Kelly Wearstler, 3 foot tall greyhound statue there for $30.

salley said...

is this from the brier creek store? i was in there sunday and didnt see half this stuff but then again i was cranky and too distracted by other patrons' general grossness.

Kara said...

Which Home Goods were you at? I live in Greensboro but those lamps might be worth the trip, were there 2 of the white?

Allison aka HaselBride said...

Love these lamps! I need to hit up my HomeGoods again this weekend to see if there is anything fabulous!

babagrlshell said...

I saw a white coverlet at target a couple weeks ago... it was a pretty good deal IMO.

Love the lamps!

I'm sure you took notes for all of us - how much were the Moroccan lanterns by chance?
