The Deal: Sweet Smiling Home warehouse sale
Saturday features 70% discounts

February 12, 2010 |  6:01 am

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.
