I'll be heading over to the Jersey side on Sunday for Home Goods' special India event. Only select stores are participating, so if you have a HG near you, check the site before hauling yourself over bright and early.
I'm on the prowl for some floor cushions (or are they floor pillows? not sure) and with zero access to my trusty sewing machine, I'm hoping shopping karma comes through for me.
I tend to be such a purist about shopping for world-inspired decor and prefer the authenticity of buying an item with a personal story. That being said, it's not like I'm stuffing a couch and side table into my luggage on any typical trip. So if you can't make it (or smuggle it through customs, in my case), then fake it! Home Goods, Z Gallerie and World Market are my favorite options for budget-friendly large pieces. I've never used Overstock and I'm definitely curious about quality/returns/customer service. So if anyone has suggestions, let me know!
In the meantime, have a lovely weekend and happy shopping!
