Fun finds: At the supercenter

Our family stopped by Meijer, our local supercenter, to do our weekly grocery shopping last weekend.  We had some non-grocery items on our list, like toothpaste and a light bulb.  Naturally I volunteered to pick those items up on the other side of the store because it gave me a chance to walk through the home areas of the store.  I glanced down the storage/organizer aisle on my way over to meet my guys in the grocery section and was caught off guard by the awesomeness before my eyes.

These remind me of vintage wire locker baskets I've seen on ebay, or vintage looking wire baskets and wall pockets I've seen from Ballard Designs and other retailers.  (I actually own the wall pockets from BD.)

In addition to the wire baskets, they had chalkboard crates, wooden crates, and metal tubs and cans.

I also stopped by the lamp aisle, not that I need any lamps, just to see if I could spot anything cute.  Lo and behold, this triple gourd lamp jumped out at me because it's not only chic, but on sale!  I grabbed the turquoise one, because I'm turquoise obsessed, and because surely I needed it since it was chic and on sale.    I'm sure it will be going back, because I already have four awesome lamps in my basement that I don't have a use for right now, but for some reason, I had to buy it that day. 

To those of you who don't live near a Meijer supercenter (which are only in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky), you're out of luck, because I haven't been able to find any of these online.  Bummer!

But ... I encourage you to check out your own local supercenters because you just might find something you don't expect!  If you've already found something great, let me know!



  1. Darn, now I need to move to Michigan or maybe Ohio! Those are cool finds.

  2. I had a wooden orange crate that I used from freshman year in college until about 6 years ago!! I may have to get one just for the memories.....although I am supposed to be in "purge" mode, not "accumulation" mode!


I hope you'll stop a second to let me know you were here and/or to share your thoughts!
