Amazon Home

what we shop for: home organization and decor. basics - like sheets, towels, rug pads, and pillow inserts are usually the best prices through Amazon.

tips: we always search through amazon if we've found an item elsewhere - either to save some money or time on shipping or to get a lower price in general.

World Market

what we shop for: some of the best on-trend lighting can be found here. Rugs are also fab.

tips: honestly, PBTeen and PB Kids have some great non-kid stuff. Especially lighting and window treatments. 

One Kings Lane
