Welcome to my houseware shopper blog! I have decided to write about products that I find useful (and cute!) in the kitchen and my home. Not only ordinary tools, no! no! no!, but ones with pizzazz associated with them-cutting edge tools, at cutting edge discounts. (And did I mention cute!)

Why? Ever since I can remember, I have been fascinated with houseware products. When I was a little, my mom would take me to ‘
Lorey’ (department store size version of Williams& Sonoma) to shop. Lorey is one of the finest stores in Frankfurt, for luxurious houseware needs, including everything from dinnerware to kitchen tools.

Yes, you read right, Frankfurt, as in Frankfurt, Germany. The Mecca of all stainless steel products (WMF knives!!!). So walking from store to store, would be a never ending delight. As she would shop for our household needs, I would run around the store and stare at their beautiful tableware, kitchen products and start building a registry in my mind -one that I would likely not purchase until years later. But the excitement continued with every visit. To this day, there are many moments etched in my mind, moments surrounded by crystal glasses, beautiful cookware, and designer dinnerware.

It must definitely also be genetic, as I grew up in a family filled with wholesale houseware distributors. Once you have those connections-how can you ever shop retail again?

Fast forward to today-a L.A. based college graduate and e-commerce professional-I am now starting to bring an old flame back to the present. The time arrived for me to shop from my fantasy registry, for my own home. Thus, I started looking for products to my heart’s delight. But it all came to a screeching halt when my bank account gave me a reality check!

So this blog here, is dedicated to all you lovers of beautiful houseware products but shop on a budget. I will post new products regularly (either from my
site, or others) with great deals. And I hope you let me know when you find great deals too!If there is anything you have our eye on, let me know and I will put my deal talents to work. I look forward to hearing your thoughts about the products you use and deals you find.
