DownEast Launches Home Products Online and a Giveaway!

Spring decorations arrived at DownEast Home stores not too long ago and I have already found a few pieces that I love. I went shopping in anticipation of this giveaway and came home with a national brand Easter egg wreath and matching topiary for under $30. I am heading back this week for a couple of other decorations that I regretted not getting when I was there. They had cute bunnies that would look perfect on my fireplace and I loved some of their floral stems and vases. I hope none of you beat me to them!


By now, most of you know that I love shopping at DownEast, and who wouldn't love getting brand name products way below national prices? However, until recently, DownEast Home products were only available to those of us in the Utah-Idaho area. Notice, I said "until recently"? That's right, now everyone can enjoy select accessories from DownEast Home, online!

I really like these boxwood balls and these black wire bowls. I just need to figure out how to incorporate them into my home.



To celebrate the launch of the DownEast Home products online, DownEast is offering one reader a $25 gift card. This gift card can be used in store or online. DownEast has been sending out a number of discount codes through email lately, so it might be a good idea to sign up if you haven't already. Winner or not, you'll still want to know about their sales.

Here's how you can win a $25 DownEast gift card:
