How to Shop Part One

I don't know how to do much, but I do know how to shop for home stuffs.  It's truly a vital life skill.

I look for different pieces different places.  (Oddly enough I learned this way of thinking through pharmacy school. Thanks, Samford, for teaching me how to categorize things and learn how to find stuff... er, I mean, information.)

I'll tell you where I shop for/have found certain items.


Yard Sales & Craigslist:

Lamps



Rugs (see above)
Wood furniture (used & fully upholstered gives me the heeby jeebies)






Ironstone



Mirrors


Antique Shops: (Similar to yard sales. Use your imagination!)

Wall decor (especially pieces that weren't intended to be art)



Ironstone




Furniture (watch the prices, though!)




Books




Amber bottles & old apothecary items



Unusual centerpiece items 



Home Goods/ TJ Maxx/ Marshalls:

Dishes





Upholstered furniture (they mostly carry occasional chairs & small pieces)
Table linens



Shower curtains



Side tables
Towels




Bathroom items (soap dispensers, baskets, etc.)



Wreaths
Rugs
Pillows





Bedding



Obviously, I find a lot of my pieces at these stores.

World Market:

Wall decor



Side chairs



Rugs
Kitchen items (some of their items make me want to cook. Weird.)

I hope the list helps you narrow down how/where to shop.
Happy Wednesday!
