Oh, how I love a good deal for the home. Who doesn't? But when I find something under $5 -- and not even at a garage sale or thrift store -- that's something to share about.
Here are four fun finds all under $4.95.
Friends Always Bababushka Favor Box ($1) at Wanda & Krystyna
What a sweet little gift box for your BFFs. Perfectly sized for a muffin, cupcake, or any number of small gifts. Comes with doily for inside! Also, check out her cute customizable favor boxes for parties.
Lumi Candleholders ($2.95 - $4.95) at CB2
Love these minimalist handblown glass candleholders. Pretty on their own or in sets. Each holds a standard taper candle, sold separately.
Squat Pitcher (reg. $4.50; sale $3.50) at Crate & Barrel Outlet
-- Limited quantities available --
Squeal-worthy and plump little pitcher (2.75" H) is crafted of white porcelain. Just the thing for milk and cream, warm sauces and syrup, or a tiny bouquet at your desk. Dishwasher-, microwave- and oven-safe.
NEDDA Chair Pad ($3.96; set of 4) at IKEA
Chair pads are usually too fussy for me, but these modern-style pads protect your chairs without all the fuss. Machine washable, too.
What do you wish you could find for less than $5?
