99 Cents Only Stores

We like to play the "gun to head" game.

When we're walking down a street with an equally beauty-obsessed friend and we pass an awful bric-a-brac, filled-to-the- brim store window we'll ask, "gun to head what's the one thing in the window you'd take."

It's like finding the gem under all of the crizzap.

For this reason we love the 99 Cents Only stores. They sate us. Finding something that can pass, if you will, for the real thing is a thrill.

These are our favorite finds. In the summer, we put the brightest Gerber daisies we can find in the blue vase. There are two of The little colored glass votives. Outside, flickering around some pots… they are a delight.

The little Adler-esque piece was just found a few days ago while purchasing the other thing the 99 Cents Only stores do so well: Bulk candy!

This is not the typical disigner's haunt, but when you need a little pick-me-up, why not see if you can do it for under a buck?
