Shopping at H&M Home

We have an H&M store here at the Mall of America, along with every other store a shopper could possibly think of but I let my finger's do the walking online so I would be sure I could get what I wanted.  (Notice I did not say *needed*).  I don't shop often, so I didn't want to come up empty handed after a trip driving to the mall.

My friend Kelly at The Essence of Home turned me on to the fact that H&M Home had some cool looking stuff, for reasonable prices.  Seems every time I find something I like with lettering on it I turn away from the price.  These were reasonable, as in pretty cheap for items with graphics on them.   

And they were items with graphics on them that I actually liked.

I have not done any shopping other than thrift stores and garage sales for quite a long time.  Truth is I just don't need anything.  So this little shopping spree was a big deal for me.

But while I don't need, occasionally I still want.  And I gave in.

Kelly is now on Brawn's list of banned bloggers.

The railway hand towels, etc., landed in the boys bathroom.  No we don't have any sort of a rail road theme anywhere, I just liked the graphics.  Same with the pillow cases, which I'm not sure where I will put.  I got two.

These aqua towels could maybe-sort-of kind-a, be considered needed.  Daughter is redoing her bed and bath in aqua accents.  She loved these, so they are now hers.

While I really like how they look, the towels are not high quality by any stretch of the imagination, but they should look really nice in her bathroom when it's done and hold up decent.  It's not like a family of 8 is showering and drying off with them.

These dish cloths came in sets of two, and they were cheap,  $3.95 a set so I got two sets not really knowing what they would be like.

The graphics on these are awesome and they hold up very nicely.  I like how they look in the sink and I like how they wipe stuff up.  But they are a bit weird, they are like thin dehydrated sponges when they first arrive, stiff enough to put in a frame.  I wish they were larger, the size is a little awkward for wiping down the counters and wringing back out.

I did pick a few things I LOVE.......

This pillow cover is excellent.  So excellent I didn't know where to use it and when I went to fetch it, in search of finding it a home, I discovered it was gone from my chair.  Daughter seemed to think it looked awesome on her bed.  Not sure how anything could look awesome ON her bed, it is usually covered in clothes.

The Olive pillow came in two colors, white with dark graphics, which I loved, but opted to get this darker one.  Again, the price was right and these covers are nice, I will include the link, they are $5.95 {H&M pillow cover}.

But my favorite *want* was the tea towels.

These tea towels are fantastic.  Perfect for making stuff, covering a chair cushion, whatever.  They are generously sized, I have two of them waiting for some great idea to pop into my head.

There was a lot of stuff I wanted, but didn't need, and I didn't give in to it all.  They had some fabric bins with graphics, some bottles with the same graphics, a cute French looking apron, and a bunch of other stuff that you probably don't need either, but just might have the same case of *I wants* that plagued me.

Don't forget to enter the $250 gift card giveaway going on.  Who's gonna win?  Maybe you!

  1. OH.MY.GOSH!! I did not know there was an H&M home. I didn't even read all of your post and went to go look. Well, I ended up putting that sugar linen cover in my bag and well a few other things...like I "need" anything!!

  3. I never should have read this post, but I guess it's a good thing that I'm broke after buying textbooks for 3 college kids, or I'd be spending like crazy on those towels and pillowcases!

    By the way, I feel sick that I didn't realize you live by the Mall of America - I was there a little over 2 weeks ago. We took a quickie couple of day trip with our kids before they started college. I would have LOVED to have met you. Man...kicking myself.

  5. What a fun shopping spree. I now have a case of the 'I wants'.

  6. Very cool stuff! And I'll watch myself so as not to make the banned blogger list...

  7. I love it all... what is H&M never heard of it.

  8. I actually do love these--we have an H&M, but it doesn't have a home dept. I guess I need to go online!

  9. Oh, poor sis. I do love the covers.

  10. Well well well! I'm now on the banned blogger list eh? That's ok. I know I can be a bad influence on someone who hasn't been shopping in real stores in a while. Lol! My problem is I love home stuff and want to share the love. Looks like it worked. You drank the kool aid (as they say). I loved seeing what you bought! I bought those tea towels too. Aren't they great? Mine is in my kitchen. What color did you order in the "olive" pillow cover? I like it. I'm hoping they'll offer new things over the holidays. I'm not done with you yet!

  11. Yes, I keep up with Kelly and her finds. Seems like they have good prices. But, like you, I'm trying to budget cheap. I can see how those would be hard to turn down.

  14. Thanks for sharing the quality of the products, Bliss. I am a diehard online shopper and have been wanting to visit H&M since Kelly found her pillow covers. I love yours and those pillowcases! Yep, it's hard to know what a fabric will be like, that's why I read reviews if they have them.

    Now I have to go have a look at those pillow covers!

    XO,
    Jane

  15. Ok thanks for that... they are awesome and I'm headed to the website!....
    I hate it when someone finds things I can't live without!
    Haha

  16. Fun shopping stuff! I have never heard of H&M. We may very well have one in our mall, but I never go there. I'm paying them an online visit. Thanks for the heads up!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ooooooo! Never heard of H&M, but now I'm off to go look through their online store. I love every single thing you got! Technically, I don't "need" anything either, but the wanting... Yeah. That's something else entirely different. ;) Thanks for getting me in trouble with Scott. HA HA HA! ;)

  18. I didn't know H & M had a home line!!! You got some great deals and finds!! The pillow covers are my favorite too. I'll have to check them out on line and of course I'm going to win the giftcard!! :)

  19. I just the other day discovered that they have a home section now and it looks daaaangerous. Probably good there isn't one too close to me. Great picks!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wow - I love every single thing you got! It's probably good that we don't have an H&M Home Store nearby. The Husband would put YOU on my list of banned bloggers! What a bunch of great finds... I really love those tea towels!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I never new H&M had a home store either. We don't have any around here anyway. I may look on line to see what they have. I hope have a good luck!! Great items Bliss!!!

  22. Great buys, Bliss! Lots of fun stuff to "need"!

  23. love some really fun stuff...and great pricing for repurposing.

    ReplyDelete
  24. We have H & M stores everywhere here, but I had no idea they did 'Home' stuff - I'm going to check it out on my next day off (I've already checked on line and there's loads I'd like) - now you're the bad influence Bliss !

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow, those prices are fantastic! I was going to stitch up a few new pillows, but for that price it's cheaper to buy them. I'm pinning this to share with the offspring. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. OOOH that last one would look great as upholstery on a chair back ;) great finds. I will have to check it out.

    ReplyDelete
  27. If this is the closest I'll ever get to a day of shopping with you, Bliss, I'll say, please let's do it again. I would probably walk past half if not all of these fabulous finds, looking at something much less cool. If I had to pick, I'd say the tea towels are my fave, but quite honestly, I love them all. I best google the H&M store locator to see if there are any nearby. Thanks, Bliss

  28. WTH!!! You're not supposed to spread secrets like this around!!! I found them online awhile ago but have been HOPING to find an H&M withing driving distance that had a home dept.....ours doesn't. I am a NUT about graphics too and I want some of that stuff BADLY!!! You're lucky to have that! BTW....my husband's company did the signage for Mall of America....all those years ago.....

  29. I am in LOVE!! Too many fun things to choose from :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh man! I can see why you had the "wants" Bliss. All so cute. Those pillows are a steal and the tea towels are so cute!!! Great graphics and I know exactly what you mean. Whenever I see something like that it is always way out of my price range. Which hoovers around le cheap ;) Happy weekend!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love every single thing you bought. I must visit their website. Love the prices too.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh, my gravy! Thanks a lot, Bliss. I just spent over an hour on their site and my cart has about $300 worth of stuff in it. Now I'm gonna have to weed through to figure out what to buy and what to live without!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I went to H & M at Maplewood Mall and NO home stuff!! I was pretty disillusioned, but found some very cute and cheap shirts!!

  34. Man! I didn't see this post until this morning, when my horoscope told me to quit spending money I don't have....
    (I bookmarked the page to head there when my horoscope isn't looking.)
