Outlet Finds in the Kitchen

7.25.2013

A few weeks ago my friend and fellow blogger, Shirley, was in town for a family function. I am so glad she has family not far from me so we can see each other from time to time. We met each other at the outlet mall to do some shopping and catching up.

We went shopping in the Williams Sonoma outlet and I saw this cute bowl with the number on it in all its French Country goodness. It was fifty percent off so it hopped in my cart.

Along with the bowl was this utensil holder so of course I had to get it, too.

But then before I was going to check out I spied the canister set. I thought how cute, but thought it would be too many matching things so on that trip I didn't buy them. After getting home and placing my bowl and utensil holder out I kept thinking about the canister set which was also fifty percent off and a really good price.

So of course I went back the next day before the sale was over and grabbed a set. (The words are not on the canisters just on the photos)


These also have the nice seal around the inside of the lid.

It was time to retire the glass jars. One lid had broke so I was down to two jars and one of those had a chipped lid.

I think besides the color of these the numbers also attracted me. What is the attraction with typography? I was noticing just how many items with typography I have just in the kitchen.

I'm using this little box to hold the coffee filters next to the coffee maker.

Of course I still am in love with my vintage blue enamel bread box. The bread really does stay fresh for a long time in it.

The other thing I bought at WS outlet was this huge crock of Herbs of Provence. I have seen so many recipes that call for this and never could find it in the grocery store so this huge thing came home with me and it was forty percent off. It will last forever. 

 There were a few other numbered pieces in this line, but that would have been to much.

So thanks for looking around the kitchen again and grab you some fresh tomatoes on your way out.
They're not very big and some are weird looking , but edible.

Have a fabulous day and remember tomorrow is another guest blogger's favorite room.

  3. Oh I would have snatched those up too. They would fit in my kitchen perfectly! Too bad I don't have a WS outlet nearby. :( I love your enamel bread box. Let me know if you ever decide to retire it. ;) And home grown tomatoes are THE BEST. I eat them like candy. To me, there's no other smell that says "summer" than a home grown tomato. Well, that and freshly mowed grass. Aaaahhh...summer! Have a great day Kim. I'm going to be spending some time this morning catching up on what you've been doing lately!

  6. Tomatoes here were late (rain), but have been yummy! I am having to limit myself LOL. I love the bread box and the marmalade jar. I have not used canisters in the kitchen since our early married years. We have a pantry that is in the kitchen so it's convenient and I keep those type items either there or in the fridge (flour) or freezer (coffee - cuz we don't drink it but I keep it on hand for guests).

  12. Great finds! I've been hunting around for some kitchen accessories, too. I love Emma Bridgewater, and your marmalade pot is super cute. This is the first year we didn't grow tomatoes. They did terribly last year so we will wait until we have a greenhouse to protect them from the wind here.

  27. Great finds, Kim. I think your kitchen is big enough that you don't have too worry too much about "matchy". Glad you could see your friend. xo Diana

  34. Ooh, Kim, I love all your finds, especially that big crock of Herbes de Provence, my favorite. I find it sometimes at Marshalls or TJMaxx, but never in a pretty crock like that. Which outlet mall did you go to? Did you know a new outlet mall just opened up in Woodstock- I'm heading over there today! Have a great weekend!

  35. I am so happy that you went back and got those canisters...yes, the initial feeling was "too matchy matchy"...but in this case, not so...they look amazing on the counter!...The PERFECT pieces!..

    ReplyDelete
  36. Great finds Kim and 50% off! They are perfect for your kitchen. Jealous of your tomatoes...even if you think they're not perfect. Mine are still in the green stage...and with all the rain we've had, I'm not holding my breath. I picked a tiny red tomato the other day, but it was half eaten by a squirrel. Doesn't look good for canning salsa this year.

  37. I love your finds. The canisters look perfect on your counter-top. So nice that you were able to get them all at such a great price.

  38. Thanx for sharing at THT Kim! I appreciate it!!

  39. I love them! Look just like real crocks {which I totally love and might have done a post on awhile back, haha}
    Can't wait to meet you at Haven!
