"My Retail Crush"

Do you recall your first crush?  Remember how you'd go out of your way to run into that special person.  You got all flushed with fever when they were around.  Well, I so have a crush on .... 



I can literally spend hours walking around that store.  I love the fact that there is so much under one roof.  From kitchen gadgets and wall art, to lamps and outdoor furniture, there's so much to see.  As I mentioned in my second FAB 5 post, it's my favorite place to get great toss pillows.  The selection is unparalleled.  It's enough to make even my head spin, and that's no easy feat.  Look at some of the cute options I saw on my most recent visit....






For those of you who haven't shopped for throw pillows in a while, they are not cheap.  It's ridiculous if you ask me.  The thought of paying $300 for a pillow really baffles me....


Kim Seybert- Graciousstyle.com $300.00

.... and quite frankly while this Etsy option is signifantly less at $49.00 I still think the price is a little crazy. 


Etsy- Cody and Cooper Designs

That's one of the reasons why the $9.99 options at Garden Ridge are so appealing.  Not to mention they were so darn cute.  The day I visited, the redlines were and EXTRA 50% off!  I got several, including large Euros, for $5.00!

And don't get me started on the outdoor cushions....

These are current $35.00 Crate and Barrel outdoor toss pillows.

Cute, but I can certainly think of better ways to spend $35.00.  Like maybe for 3 (not 1) of the Garden Ridge options.









 At a 1/3 of the price, the choice is a no brainer.  And the selection is so much fresher than the options at your typical home improvement store.

Zzzzzz.... See what I mean?

There was also a great selection of swings and gliders.  Resonably priced from $69.99 to around $150, less than the ones I featured on The Outdoor Room post.






They seemed to be well stocked with Spring just around the corner and they even came in red.  Love it!

Keep in mind that this is just a small sampling of what Garden Ridge has to offer.  There is so much more that I could've shown, but this is a blog not a book.  : )

And so, my love affair with Garden Ridge continues....
