Raleigh finally has a Garden Ridge (now if we can just get a Hobby Lobby)! Woo hoo.
I’ve heard such mixed reviews of Garden Ridge. So this weekend I went to check it out for myself. I went with low expectations, but was pleasantly surprised at what I found.
The one here in Raleigh was an old Target store, so it’s HUGE. Seriously big. It’s certainly not high quality (especially the furniture) but I don’t think you walk in and expect high quality. But I think it’s great for other reasons. It’s now the only place I’ll go for Holiday decor, books, pillows, outdoor stuff, and picture frames.
Here are some of my fun finds…
This rug was $99 for an 8×10! I kind of love it. They have hundreds of rugs. But I’d say 99% are seriously ugly!
Man do they ever have some pillows. Aisle after aisle of pillows. I absolutely adore the 2 large ikat pillows above. They were $20 each, and I think I may have to go back to get them for the master bedroom. The small pillow at the bottom was $12.99 and was an outdoor cushion. Love the fabric and colours.
Found these fridge organization containers (of course after I just bought mine). They were a bit pricey ($12-$20) but I love that they are low and clear. They also had loads of cheap stem ware. I don’t know about you, but I can’t tell the difference between a $1 wine glass and a $30 wine glass.
And I think this may be the best source for inexpensive kids books ever. I picked up a bunch for birthday presents, each for $1.99. Great to pick up for stocking stuffers, prizes for good behaviour, gifts, donations.
Now for the 99% of the store that was not so cute…
