- Some of Target’s items look like Pottery Barn, but I haven’t purchased it. A lot of their summer outdoor patio furniture and baby furniture look the same as Pottery Barn. PB sued Target over this in 2006.
- Sears also has another shop called The Great Indoors, but I haven’t bought anything there yet.
- Finally, World Market has furniture that is nice and not too expensive.

More Rustic than Pottery Barn
Six years ago, I bought furniture from Furniture.com and their delivery was fast. Friends bought furniture from Overstock.com (because of the $2.95 shipping) NYC people, be aware that Overstock’s delivery is only curbside delivery and they will not bring it into your house, even with a big tip.I used to shop at The Bombay Company, The Storehouse and Smith & Hawken for outdoor items, but all have gone out of business.I also find discount coupons or codes & free shipping codes for these stores at Retail Me Not.Shopping when items are on sale also helps!
