Today at lunch Mr. Housewife said he wanted to go to a store he had seen called Home Goods, the twinadoes were at kid party so I figured now’s the perfect time. I had seen commercials for the store, but didn’t even know we had one near us.
When I first walked in I was in shock, the place was packed full of stuff, I mean PACKED. Christmas was everywhere, and I’m feeling all festive so I figured that was cool…
Did I mention how busy it was? Oh and they offer carts to stuff all the crap in as you go along. So you have a cram packed store full of people and stuff mixed with narrow aisles and oblivious people pushing their ginormous carts.
They did have a really nice selection of cake stands that caught my fancy, but I refrained considering I have about ten of these things at home. Also I should add that even though everything was completely chaotic they had specific departments for things like kitchenware, bedding, furniture, etc…
My other weakness…tiered trays, I love them, can’t get enough so when I saw a four foot silver tiered try I really had to fight bringing it home…. It’s hard to tell from this picture, but it was taller than my cart, however, the $249.99 price tag was more than I was willing to spend. Not all of the trays were this size, there were some really nice ones, some mirrored, some plain, you name it they had it.
They had a lot of bakeware at decent prices, but it’s stacked all wonky so you have to dig for stuff and check it all over for scratches.
What I did spy and had to have…….
Have you all ever been to a Home Goods? Was it a fun experience? Now I do have to say it’s probably not as busy during the week, so if I went back that’s when I would go. The amount of stuff they had was really overwhelming, but also enticing, kind of like a really cool garage sale. Incredibly happy I did not have the twinadoes with me, that would have made this little adventure very painful.
