A Harvest for the Home

August 8, 2019

Several of the departments in our 36-room home are dedicated to making your home homey. Here are the highlights for Autumn 2019.

Gardens of Inspiration

Get your house and garden trick-or-treat ready with large wooden witches and stacked pumpkins, metal pumpkin harvest stakes, and of course, yoga cats!

Also select from flat metal “Welcome” signs featuring pictures of pets, etc.—many can fit on seasonal mesh wreaths. Speaking of wreaths, you’ll love our new autumn colors in deco mesh.


The Heart of the Home

After lending our store her expertise for 20 years, our head of Housewares, Nancy Jones, has begun a well-deserved retirement. Heidi Brothers, our talented head of Gourmet, steps in to lead Housewares and has hit the ground running. BIG thanks to both Nancy & Heidi!

Sterling Risers

Elevate your next buffet or table spread with Sterling Risers—adjustable stands with interchangeable legs and decorative toppers. New: Pumpkin and Holiday decorative toppers. Meet the founder, Kathy Albaugh, during her Pop-Up Shop in our Houswewares Dept. on Sept. 7, 2019.

Nora Fleming

Largest Collection in Chicagoland

Our comprehensive Nora Fleming collection includes all of the new serving pieces and minis for 2019: Soap & Lotion set (pictured), Melamine Guest Towel Holder, Melamine Chip & Dip, and tons of new minis, including the adorable owl pictured here as well as a penguin, Mason jar, red bow & collegiate helmets.

Swarovski Crystal Forest Boutique

Always sparkling with timeless crystal figurines and jewelry. The 2019 Christmas collection is here!

From Sept. 23-29, 2019, receive a Tarot Pocket Mirror with a $200 Swarovski jewelry purchase (while supplies last).

We Love a Theme in Our Linen Room

You can’t help but get “that autumn feeling” when you step inside our Linen Room. Find fall colors and symbols in pillows, placemats, table runners, and more. The Heritage Lace Halloween collection is back with beautiful lace ponchos, pillows, and table dressings.

Quilted placemats, runners, and throws by C&F are also in the seasonal spirit with cozy & classic new designs like you see pictured here.


Mini Makeovers

You don’t need to tear your home apart with a major renovation project to get a new look for autumn. Simply change out a tired light fixture or replace wall hangings with something more in season. Look for a changing collection of wall hangings, mirrors, chandeliers, and lamps throughout the store, all at great prices.

Little Traveler

How Did These Kid-Related Traditions Get Started?

As we perused our beautiful collection of giftware for little ones and parents-to-be in our Gift Galleries, we got to thinking...how did these traditions—like the tooth fairy and birthday candles—get started? We put our internet detectives on it....
