Goody Goody Home Goods

Yesterday, we shared that we are visiting family and friends in Minnesota.  Of course, we visit with people, but we also like to visit stores and restaurants we don’t have in Montana.  So, my sisters, the boys and I took a trip to Home Goods.  Fortunately, I won a $50 gift card from Thrifty Decor Chick last fall.

Upon entrance, we were greeted by a lovely and extensive array of lamps.

This wire lamp is essentially what I attempted to make for the boys’ room, but failed miserably.  Obviously, it can be done.

These cut out tree lamp is pretty, and it would be a perfect Halloween decoration.  Seriously though, there were so many pretty lamps.  Like this rain lamp:

And this floral cut out lamp, which I think would look great in a little girl’s bedroom.

A white faceted base with a poppy fuchsia shade is cute and playful.

Small, modern cube lamps with rectangular shades are a fun way to light up a room.  My sisters and I drooled over this forest green/natural linen combo.

I tried to convince myself to buy this small purple lamp for our main bathroom.  It was only twenty bucks, but we don’t need more clutter on our counters.

I drooled over this white ceramic lamp.  Sort of Jonathan Adler-esque, no?

A white horse head as book end?  Yes, please.  I don’t need it, but I tried to get my sister to buy it.  Sadly, he didn’t come home with us.

If we ever finish our patio, no, we haven’t even started on it, I would love to add a few colorful oil lamps for mood lighting.

Of course, candle lanterns would be cute, too.

 

A silver faux crocodile bath set would look posh in any bath.

The clearance section was fantastic, too.  I loved the large, bold pattern and colors of this painting.  It was roughly 3 feet by 4 feet for only 40 smackeroos.

Of course, no Home Goods trip is complete without pillow shopping.  Here’s a fun textured pillow.

These large peacock patterned floor pillows are fun and only $25.  I did convince my sister to get one.

And one of these large pillows.  I love the fun pattern.

 

The pattern on these pillows is so fun, right?

My sis and I had a small pillow fight over these two.  The black is raised velvet and the inserts are down, for only 20 each.  Now, I’m cheap when it comes to pillows, but I could splurge on something this pretty.

So, wanna know what I’m bringing back to Montana?  A few glass items, including this three-tiered stacking organizer.  I don’t know where it’ll end up, but I liked it too much to pass up.  It was 17 bucks, but I had a gift card sooooooo, it was free to me.

I also snagged a large glass cylinder vase for $12 which I think I’ll use in the laundry room.  In the clearance section, I found a brushed nickel adjustable height desk for 5 bucks.  The adjustable metal shade doesn’t stay on, but I’m hoping to inspect it further when we’re home to see if Ben or I can come up with a reasonable solution.

  1. Great shopping post! I wanted to go to Home Goods today but the nearest one is 45 minutes away. Not quite as far as it must be in Montana but too far for just a random trip. I’ll have to settle for TJ Maxx!

  2. Our new apartment is right around the corner from a HomeGoods so that’ll be trouble. Love the tiered stacking organizer. It would look super cute in the bathroom or kitchen.

    1. Hi Samantha,

      We go to the Roseville Home Goods. It’s in the Har Mar Mall next to Marshalls, so it’s a great place to do some discount shopping. 🙂

      Thanks!

  3. There is a home goods 2 minutes from my work (I live in MN!!) and i go there at least once a week over my lunch. It is so fun, but dangerous at the same time!! I love that first lamp… I might have to go today to see if it is at my HomeGoods 🙂

  4. Love that store!

    Looks like this wire lamp is interwoven instead of just wrapped. Maybe if you weave some of the layers in and out of the others it will stay a little better.
