Elizabeth Jenkins for including me in your latest story on Glo MSN about "Shopping Secrets from Design Pros". In my quote I mentioned a lamp that I purchased from Big lots that I used to decorate the Good Shepherd Charity Project. I had it painted blue and it totally reminded me of one of Jonathan Alder's early style of lamps.
You can view it here.
Anyway in my original quote I said that my sister and I used to say that if we bought something from Pic 'N Save (the original name for Big Lots), we would call it Kip and Eva's - which was Pic 'N Save backwards. Just to keep it on down low... we didn't want to give away our secrets! So EVEN though Big Lots is Big Lots and Stol's Gib just really doesn't sound that cool, we still call it Kip and Eva's!
Anyway was hoping they would add my funny story to the quote but now I guess I get to tell me version of it!
Do you have a funny name for a store like Targe' for Target or Needless Markups for Nieman Marcus?
Would love to hear your own story!
