I {Heart} TJ Maxx!

There’s not a HomeGoods within 100 miles around here {boo!}, but I occasionally check out my local TJ Maxx for home decor inspiration. Most of the time I look and very rarely buy. I also love their clothes, but at this very pregnant point in my life, trying on clothes isn’t my favorite thing to do.

Yesterday, I saw SO many amazing home decor items {for great prices} that I just had to show you what I saw…and what came home with me. 🙂

 Gorgeous Pillows | Fabulous Rattan-Wrapped Carafe | Lovely Lamps

Striped Director’s Chair |  Cork Board | Wood Bookend | Chevron Footstools

This beaded cake stand came home with me for 12.99. I’m always on the lookout for items for events like baby showers, receptions and more.

I also snagged this lovely white distressed lantern on clearance for 10.00.  It is missing it’s handle, but I’m going to use twine to create a new one. For now, the lantern works perfectly as a vase for the lovely hydrangeas blooming in my yard. 🙂

Do you like to shop at TJ Maxx? Do you have a HomeGoods near you?

    1. You might be able to find one. I had my eye on it for a long time and then was thrilled when I found it on clearance!

  1. I love TJ Maxx!! We don’t have a Homegoods nearby. I have that ampersan and want one of those puffs, but have resisted.

    1. I came…this……. close to buying that ampersand! I might have to back and get it. 🙂

  2. I’m obsessed with HomeGoods! I have two within 30 minutes of my house, one about five minutes from work…and they’re building one about five minutes from my house. Not good for my bank account! Great finds! I LoVe the wood bookend 🙂 Thanks for sharing, I love your blog btw 🙂

    1. Oh wow, Alisa! I’m not sure I could handle that many so close to my house! 🙂 Thanks for your sweet comment!

  3. I’ve never even heard of HomeGoods, so I’m guessing there isn’t one close to me in northern Maine. And the nearest TJMaxx is in central Maine, 220 miles away. Hmph.

    Good thing we have Marden’s in town, which is a surplus/warehouse store that occasionally has awesome finds!

    1. Jenna, I’m totally jealous that you live in Maine. I’ve always wanted to come to visit Maine in the Fall. I know it’s so beautiful there. 🙂

  4. You found some great stuff! We have a TJMaxx right down the street and I am always finding great things in there!!! AND I’m so happy, they are building a Home Goods right next door! I’m in trouble lol!! I love that chevron foot stool, I am going to have to go to mine and see if I can find one! And their lamps are the bomb! I’m always finding some great lamp in there I don’t need! HAHA 😀

  5. We don’t have a Home Goods…have a TJ Maxx “in the city” (I live in a suburb) which I’ve always considered as just “OK”. But, your post reminded me I have picked up a goodie or two on occasion. Been cooped up most of the last 3 weeks being sick, but planning a trip “to the city” today. I may just have to stop by TJ Maxx!

    1. Aww, I hope you’re feeling better, Lisa. Maybe TJ Maxx will have some new things when you go!

  6. A little bird told me that Home Goods is coming to Madison!! I was so excited. I love Home Goods and only get to visit one when we go to Savannah Ga to visit family there!

    1. Are you serious??? Oh my! I think I might have just squealed a little bit! 🙂 Keep me posted!!

  7. I adore TJ Maxx! I’ve picked up a lot of great things for my house from there over the years. And I’m so excited that HomeGoods will be opening a store on my birthday (June 24) near my house. I even wrote a post last week about how thrilled I am!

    By the way, I absolutely love how you used the lantern as a vase for your hydrangeas. It’s gorgeous!

  8. What great finds, Myra!! I love TJ Maxx…LOVE IT!! I get anything from home stuff to shoes to clothes there. I love how it is always changing and they are always getting new things.

    1. Aww, Tara. We don’t have Marshall’s either. 🙁 Whenever we go through larger cities, I try to stop at HomeGoods to get my fix. LOL!

  9. I LOVE HomeGoods! They are an awesome store to browse home decor items. There is one in Virginia Beach, probably about 15 or so miles away from my house. I can’t go there too often or else I’d be broke & have a very unhappy husband! LOL. I like your find though, very cute as a vase!!

  10. I was in TJMaxx this week. 3 stores near me! I bought a lot, but most is going back. I’ve learned the hard way, that if you want something from there, BUY IT, or it might be gone when you go back. You can return it within 30 days if you change your mind.

  11. Yes….I am so lucky to have a HomeGoods store near me!! My husband doesn’t feel lucky—-but I have found incredible items & deals there! My foyer/hall table was a HomeGoods find. I bought it and then realized it wouldn’t fit in my car!!! *Oops* I had to call the hubby at work and have him rescue my purchase!!
    We also have TJMaxx, Ross and Marshall’s….so I’m always checking them out for little (or big) deals~~now making sure that I have the proper vehicle for my purchase!! 🙂

  12. I loooove TJMaxx and Home Goods! I have always found the funnest stuff there! (my husband always tells me funnest isn’t a word, but I still use it) I think they always have such great seasonal items too. Love what you came home with!

  13. We have two HomeGoods and several TJ Maxx in this area but can’t find two great lampshades for my two brass lamps that I just sprayed white. Love the shade in your TJ Maxx picture but they always come with a lamp attached. Any suggestions of where to get some patterned lampshades?

  14. Our nearest TJ Maxx is TWO hours away. We were there last week, it is a special treat to get to go in and look for me. I love the clearance isle. I picked up to West Elm knock off boxes for 20.00-for both!

    I have that white cake stand pictured above too! Love it.

  15. I just stumbled across your blog, and I’m following you via my WordPress reader now. I JUST looked online to see if we had a Homegoods store anywhere nearby and no luck. But we do have two TJ Maxx stores, and I love your finds! I’m motivated to go check them out now. Love your blog welcome statement- “a matter of the heart”. Beautiful!
