What differentiates Home Goods from the other bath and linens stores is their unique one-of-a-kind products. Although there will always be a great selection of towels, beddings, and pillows, you never know what will turn up in the way of pots, pans, small appliances and gift items. There's always an excellent assortment of holiday-themed decorations and dinnerware for just about every season and holiday--dinner sets featuring pumkins, platters with stars-and-stripes for the 4th of July, etc. You'll also find basic utensils, such as cutlery, graters, mixing spoons, and potholder/kitchen towel sets there everyday. But look for the specials. Some months, there will be a new shipment of teakettles. One month, there were even small, traditional cast-iron Japanese tea sets! There are new arrivals of accent-piece furnishings, such as shelving units, accent chairs and ottomans, but if you see something you like, buy it now, because there's no guarantee you'll see it there again. One month, there were 6' stuffed "giraffes" made from multicolored leather. Another time, there was a suit of armor, perfect for a Tudor country-house foyer. And if you need a hostess gift, there's always a delicious array of gourmet teas, coffee, cocoa, chocolates and tins of candy, plus beautiful china tea-cups, which you could assemble into a hostess-basket, adding one of the tea towels and small baskets which are usually available in the store. This is always an exciting shopping experience, like an exotic bazaar brought to suburbia.
