Pottery Barn Look 4 Less

Saturday, February 26, 2011

I LOVE Pottery Barn. I don't love their prices. I do love when I can find a similar look for less. I've been wanting to buy a storage unit to house things like dvds, video games, toys, etc that looks great but is also functional. The Pottery Barn units are stylish but the price is out of my budget so I was excited to stumble on this great find today in my local Christmas Tree Shop. Don't let the name fool you...this is not your typical holiday market. The first time I walked in I was expecting to find, well, Christmas Trees (our store opened during the holiday season). I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was a whole lot more than that. It's more of a discounted housewares store. You can find everything in there...linens, wall decor, furniture, kitchen gadgets & dishes, tchotchkes, anything and everything for your home...and at great prices. The unit I bought caught my eye immediately b/c of it's uncanny Pottery Barn feel. The price shocked me even more (considering it's very sturdy and not rickety at all). Originally priced at $130 it was marked half off to $65. I'll take it! And to sweeten the deal we asked if they'd take $50 for it (never hurts to ask right?!). Manager replied "How about $51.98?"....ummm ok! (totally random number but we were thrilled!). To compare I pulled up a Pottery Barn bench unit with just 3 baskets that sells for $401. Larger units sell for much more! Check out the Christmas Tree Shop website to see if there is a location near you. And I have to add that the stuff in the store is so much cooler that what you see online.


  1. I think the manager should have said 51.92. That sounds so much cooler. hehe. Looks great!

  2. Thanks for sharing this! It looks awesome and I have really been wanting to do this for our tiny little entry way but the Pottery Barn ones were WAY WAY out of my budget! I hope I have a Christmas Tree Shop nearby!
