Pillow Power, Day 3

Back down to where B lives today.  Discount stores- great places to find pretty pillows. 
Here's my short list, feel free to add to it.
TJ Maxx
Wal Mart
Big Lots
I've purchased lovely pillows from every one of these stores.  
Found these Waverlys at Big Lots.  
$10 each

$8 each

My favorite spots to find pillows on the cheap are TJ Maxx and Ross.  Never ever pay a big price for solid color pillows.  Just keep looking until you find the right color.  I've never paid more than $8 for a solid. Like these salmon pillows I bought last Spring to lighten up the red sofa.
Solid pillows $4 each
Another tip- You can find the most delightful pillows unexpectedly.  If you love it, grab it.  Eventually, you'll figure out where to put it.  I don't always set out to find a specific style or color.  It's surprising how things can come together without a plan.  The above inspiration was the fabric on this pillow from Ross.  Didn't know where I was going put it, just knew I loved it.

This little bench is by our back door. The down filled pillow from Marshalls makes a soft place to lean back while we pull our shoes off.
Target is another fav.  Their pillows range from $20-50.  Still a little on the high end so I usually wait for sales.  I eyed this cute pillow for months until it went 75% off.
Sometimes I do buy pillows at regular price because I like them so much.  You may remember past posts with these Target pillows.

Look at these discount store beauties below.  Perfect for spring.


Wal Mart

Wal Mart

Pottery Barn is not a discount store but I'd be amiss if I didn't include them when talking about pillows.  We all love PB.
Hoping to find a look alike for this one.  You just never know.  Someone may even donate this to Goodwill.  Before you laugh, let me tell you, I have found some great PB stuff at GW.

  Happy Pillow Hunting and...
more power to you if you can find a great bargain!

Oh, I DO love pillows...and lots of them! Let me know when you get tired of the pillow with the two birds! I have 2 red sofas and I've been looking for something for the center of each one! lol I love to 'look' at the Pottery barn catalog online...and ETSY! Etsy has some amazing nautical pillows I would love to have! I'm loving these posts! So many great ideas! ♥

You listed all my favorite places to shop! We also have Tuesday Morning. Do you have that chain of stores? It may be California only.

Andrea said...

I love adding throw pillows to change up the look of a room. I always have my pillow radar on for good finds!

Oh darlin, you are a girl after my own heart! Love all of those places and yes, we have Tuesday Morning in Alabama, Heather. I love black and white cups, plates, serving pieces and have an eclectic mix. Once, I tracked down some bowls visiting TJMaxx in 5 states over a week period. I fly for my work and I was able to cram them into a carry-on each time... glad they weren't teapots!

The red/yellow toile one is my FAVORITE!


Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

Gorgeous pillows! I do the same thing....wait....wait....wait til they go on sale! I don't like to pay much for pillows as my taste and colors change and if I have paid a fortune for a pillow? I would be stuck!

Great post!

I am a pillow junkie! My husband calls me the queen of pillows. I store them on my treadmill and go back and change them out. You gotta use that thing for something right???? You mentioned all the best stores, I have nothing to add!

Today when I was at Walmart...Thanks to you and all your pillow inspiration, I went straight to the pillow dept...I was surprized, they had a few things I may go back and get. TJ Maxx is one of my favorite place to get pillows too!

The toile is the best in MHO. I really like pink and yellow together.
