Stores in the Area

We've been really busy the last few weeks with projects at the house, so today I thought I'd just post something quick about where we've been shopping in the area!

We recently got our fireplace installed and started painting the kitchen cabinets. After this weekend I'll have some "in progress" pictures to share.

1) The paint store. We love the quality of Benjamin Moore paint and the people here are so so helpful-

2) Calico Corners- The best store for inspiration! We haven't gotten anything here yet, but their selection of furniture and fabrics have given us a lot of ideas.

They have hundreds of fabrics 30 to 60% below designer showroom prices every day. You can shop types of fabrics by prints, by patterns such as floral, geometric, plaid, toile, stripes or solids, etc.. The fabric is reasonable, but most everything else is over-priced.

3) Last but certainly not least.....Home Goods! The Home Goods in Westchester and also in Lemont are the two stores we frequent the most. We recently bought a couch here discounted from $1400 to $350. Now that's a deal.

Have a great weekend! Happy early Mother's Day Mom!


  1. Thanks Courtney! Love, mom

  2. I think Bryan and I may need to take a trip out to the suburbs to get to HomeGoods! Thanks for the tip Court!
