If you remember our Luxe Loves post from a few months ago, you’ll recall we promised to honor our more practical nature and cover great, thrillingly inexpensive finds along the way, too. We’ve discovered lots of well-priced items that are giving us a retail therapy rush, and the easy-on-the-wallet part is an extra bonus as we move into a season where we typically spend more money.
We spotted these red wool plaid blankets at OMG. Doesn’t everyone need one of these? Just $35.
King-Sized Cotton Sheets
We all know that TJ Maxx is stop number one for bargain hunting for sheets, but trying to find king-sized, all-cotton, white sheets seems impossible there. A stop by Tuesday Morning in Green Hills (in a basement that feels completely like a stereotypical, dingy basement) proved fruitful. Check out both of these sheet sets:
Antique Side Table
Have you been to the bargain bin at Bradford’s? Really incredible deals. Check out this antique side table, circa 1880 France, for only $310.
Trader Joe’s has amazing deals on their full-priced items. Their English Toffee, at just $2.99, is hard to pass up.
Did you see our post on 5 Happy Hours a couple months ago? What stuck out to us more than anything else was the half-price sushi. Indulge the sushi craving at Virago on Monday evenings for half off. At Zumi , enjoy a free happy hour roll with purchase of a specialty roll from 3-6 p.m. M-F.
