Checking out the Serena & Lily friends and family sale



Everything on this home design site is 20% off until 11:59 p.m. tomorrow, so hop to it. I think these baskets are nice and graphic and very sturdy-looking.

An alpaca throw that could bring some much-needed excitement to my sofa situation.


I always just serve cheese on a regular old plate when I have company, but one of these cheese stones would be so much more elegant.

A lovely embroidered duvet cover.

I don’t know why this wicker tray appeals; I think I want to be the type of person who entertains more, and owning items like trays would maybe facilitate that.

Likewise: candlesticks.

I’m in the market for a couple of table lamps, and this one is so cool and beachy-looking.

4 Thoughts on Checking out the Serena & Lily friends and family sale

    A PSA for GOACAs living just east of the San Francisco Bay: Berkeley is home to the only Serena and Lily outlet. There’s furniture, bedding, rugs, home accessories etc. at significantly reduced prices.

    Cheese is cheese. Save your money to spend … on cheese.

    Whereas, trays are wonderful, but with handles. I like the throw and baskets too.

    There is nothing better than being invited to the home of a good friend. Just get takeout!

      As a GOACA from Wisconsin, cheese is god. I always have a delicious cheese sweating under a glass dome always on my counter, a cheese dealer, and a love of all cheese that is stinky, sweaty and runny. I wouldn’t buy those cheese plates either but that’s because I’d rather spend on actual cheese. 😉

      And I agree – there is nothing better than sharing food, drink, conversation with friends…

        See now, I had no idea I was supposed to do that with cheese! Maybe the special plate makes more sense then. I guess one could also use a cake stand though. Now I’m hungry.

        I admit the stones are beautiful. I’d probably just hang them up and gaze at them. Got no storage anyway.
