There is nothing quite like the rush of finding a great piece of decor at a great price. I love looking for deals on furniture and accessories, so much so that it’s actually one of my favorite parts of decorating. I enjoy the challenge. While it’s fun to splurge every now and then on something special, saving money on as much as possible lets me indulge in those splurges guilt-free. Besides, why spend lots of money where you don’t have to? Style doesn’t have to come at a high price tag.
One of the most popular questions I receive is, “Where do you shop for affordable home decor?” Over the years, I’ve formed a list of my favorite places. For starters, I have a lot of fun digging through the treasures at local thrift stores and garage sales that I can makeover into something new. Older craftsmanship is generally better than a lot of today’s, it has character, and you can put your own creative spin on it. You can also score some great deals on Craigslist and some really cool, handmade items on Etsy (which is included in the list).
