Yard sale for new things. Looking for a new duvet, sheets, or even a new home office chair? While we shop for most things in Manhattan, we use Overstock.com regularly for pricey items that are not style sensitive.
For example with the cold weather coming, we just purchased a queen-sized
Eco-friendly 230-Thread Count Down Comforter for $50 that retails for $200. But what was the brand? They don't tell you. When the comforter arrived we found it was from Pacific Coast and was sold on their site for $180.... a great comforter and a great deal.
Overstock sells everything from event tickets to iPods, but for our purposes they sell cordless drills, vacuums, air purifiers, rugs, outdoor and indoor furniture, as well as showerheads and bedding. They sell the $45 Rainfall oversized shower head for $20.
This isn't all the most beautiful stuff, but if you are in the market for household items, we recommend taking a peek here first. MGR
