Carolina Pottery is a ginormous store with everything from accent furniture to faux flowers to glassware. As you'll see from some of my pictures the stores are very bare-bones and warehouse-ish. Everything they sell isn't amazing, but I found some great deals with a lot of style among the 6,500 square feet of items.
Lets start with one of my favorite finds. This trunk comes in a bunch of different sizes and would be great as a side table or coffee table. They range from $40-$100 and look very similar to the Mayfair Steamer line at Restoration Hardware which ranges from $800-$2,500.
This little cloche is $7 and it came home with me. It doesn't have the wooden pedestal like the Restoration Hardware cloche, but I found one at a thrift store for $2. So, for $9 I was able to recreate a $69 accessory from Restoration Hardware.
I am a sucker for paned mirrors. This one is amazing, but it's still a little too expensive for me at $199.
This glass canister also came home with me. It was $7. The canister from Pottery Barn that's the same size is $34. Sorry for the horrible picture. I snapped it in my bathroom real quick because I forgot to take a picture in store.
That's it for the Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn knock-offs. Here are some other great items I saw.
gilded faux bamboo side tables $60-$75
glass lamp $49
more trunks $40-$100
wooden sunburst mirror $35
(not sure if I love this or hate it) mirror & glass side table $100
These metal sphere thingies look like something Restoration Hardware would sell $10-$20.
Are there other chains like Carolina Pottery in other parts of the country? I'd love to hear about them, so feel free to fill me in!
