The Deal: Sweet Smiling Home warehouse sale
Saturday features 70% discounts
I've wanted to check out the exotic housewares at Sweet Smiling Home ever since I visited the magical yard called Skyfarm and saw one of the store's Balinese Temple umbrellas (shown above with Skyfarm owner Ilse Ackerman).I finally have real impetus to make the trip to Sweet Smiling Home this Saturday. Leading up to a big warehouse move, it is offering huge discounts all day. (The new location will open sometime in March.) Everything in the store will be reduced by 70%, including furniture, curtains, lighting, pillows and other accessories. And the large Balinese Temple umbrellas like the one shown above? Normally priced at around $200, they cost only $70 on Saturday.
Sweet Smiling Home, 1317 Palmetto St., downtown Los Angeles; (213) 687-9630 or www.sweetsmilinghome.com. Sale is Saturday only, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.-- Lisa Boone
