Pennies on the Dollar

Living in San Diego affords residents with many shopping options.  I’m a world-class cheap skate and hate wasting time, so I have figured out how to be pretty successful shopper without ever having to go to the mall.

We all know that mother knows best and of course that rings true again.  We just moved into a new house a few months ago and we still working on decorating with window coverings, lamps and miscellaneous odds and ends.  Mom is in town this week and she has taken it upon herself to dress our windows. 

Cindy Crawford's line on sale at JC Penny's.

I am happy to let her take the reigns because I don’t even know where to begin when it comes to window coverings.  Her first destination: JC Penny

She’s been there three times in the past five days.  I went with her yesterday and I realize that the woman is on to something.  The housewares section in Penny’s is extensive and very high quality.  What’s more, every thing is marked down significantly … well, to ‘pennies’ on the dollar (had to go there). 

Don’t get me wrong, you’re not going to get dollar store prices, but they have very good sales – buy one, get one for $1, etc. – on many of their good-quality home wares.  Beautiful lamps, drapes, furniture, art, etc. 

If you are on the market for housewares, JC Penny’s may not be front-of-mind for you (as it wasn’t for me).  But I’m here to tell you that it is not a place to overlook.
