On Sale Now: Wrapables, Crate & Barrel, YLighting
The Wrapables apron sale couldn't have come at a better time. Farmers' markets are overflowing with hearty, delicious fall vegetables, and I can't keep myself out of the kitchen.
I have a few aprons to choose from: one--a mustard yellow number with crimson poppies--that my grandmother sewed for me a few years back when I visited her in the Ukraine, and another, a quick, mediocre find at the 99 cent store. (Truth be told: I haven't used grandma's apron yet and the dollar one gets pulled out to serve as a dishtowel once in a while.) I'm not really an apron gal, but I wouldn't mind unleashing my inner Stepford wife and donning the sexy Jesse Steele Cream and Black Damask apron, which totally looks like a stylish dress in the front, thanks to the modern pattern. The cotton apron is marked down to $25.99 from $32.95, and comes in a red-and-white pattern as well as a pink-and-black pattern.
(Pssst, I also really like the $11.99 Retro Kitchen Mitts and Tea Towel set in "Cactus", but I'm loyal to my current mitts and will just wait 'till they wear out.)
If your loveseat or sofa is lookin' shabby, now would be the time to head to Crate & Barrel. The contemporary furniture retailer is offering a 25 percent discount on custom upholstery and a 15 percent discount on stock upholstery until Oct. 12. My favorites are the mod Tate Bed in Camden, a Stock color, and the Steele Chair, which I'd love in the lively Paprika.
YLighting announced a huge clearance on overstock lighting products last Friday, which lasts 'till...well, all the products are sold out! You can save up to 80 percent on designer brands such as Artemide, Vibia, Foscarini and more. For a long time, I've had a soft spot for the Lumiere Table Lamp from eclectic Italian lighting company, Foscarini. And now, it's discounted from $422 down to $379.80. Since most of the featured items are priced above $50, customers will score free shipping. There is a major caveat, however: since this is a closeout special, items are non-returnable.
