Remember when were younger and your parents bought you presents for Christmas in June and hid them away until December 25 and one day when you opened the drawers in the spare bedroom looking for an umbrella and you accidentally discovered them?
There they would be, simply minding their own business tucked away in over-sized sacks.
And you would want more than anything to take a peek inside those bags.
Just a peek.
But you wanted to make the nice list, so you shut the drawer and walked away and tried to be good, but then you paused for a moment and turned around and opened the drawer one more time….
….and started practicing your surprised face for Christmas morning. 🙂
This post is kind of just like that.
It’s a sneak peek of Kirkland’s upcoming collections.
They invited me down to the corporate offices and we took a tour and I snapped a few pictures just for you.
I thought it would be fun to show you what’s heading into stores soon (like this wood storage container with rope handles and a tufted burlap top).
Before anyone else might have a chance to see it.
I wanted to bring you along on the tour with us and get the behind the scenes sneak peek so you would be totally in the know and when one of your friends shows you what she bought at Kirkland’s, you can be all like, “Umm….my friend KariAnne showed that to me months ago.”
Here are a few more of my favorites.
Like this mason jar soap.
Those labels? And wait until you smell them. The French Lavender soap smells exactly like summer.
There’s an entire line of new lighting that looks like it stepped out of the pages of an industrial warehouse.
There are lamps and chandeliers and wire shades.
And wait for it….wait for it….the bulbs come with it.
There are arrows.
There are galvanized metal signs.
And wooden boxes.
And dozens and dozens and dozens of new storage containers.
There are vintage wood signs.
And signs with quotes.
And signs that inspire you and make you laugh and clear an entire wall in your home to welcome them to your blank wall.
There are pumpkins.
And harvest signs.
And polka dot fall decor.
These are heading to a store near you next month.
And these pumpkins?
They are made of the most amazing material and the stems are metal and they are copper and gold and turquoise colored and make you want to skip over the entire month of August.
But here’s what I was the most excited about.
There are different chair styles and you can select your fabric and match it to your chair style and completely customize it to your decor.
Here’s a sneak peek of some of the fabrics they have available now.
And custom benches are available, too.
And one of the styles even has nail-head trim.
And they are so affordable. Some of the chair styles were only $79.99 and some were $99.99 (including the customized fabric).
Here’s to sneak peeks.
Here’s to mercury glass and turquoise pumpkins and reclaimed wood and carved pedestals and wooden signs and metal-numbered clocks and chairs you can make your own for $79.99.
You can find some of these online right now, but the rest will be coming to a store near you.
Just remember when you see them…..
….make sure you have your surprised face on. 🙂
