Post Date: Jul 08, 2022

Better Home Goods, a full season vendor at the Shipshewana Flea Market, has all you need for your home textiles needs and so much more. Here are 5 easy tips for using their products in your home to keep it looking and feeling fresh and energized all year.

#1 Change Out Bedding with the Seasons

With deals like these, you can afford to use a sunflower theme in the summer and a country star look in the winter.

#2 Change Out Throw Pillows for an Easy & Inexpensive Makeover

One of the quickest and easiest ways to get a new look is to replace throw pillows. You can do this indoors on your sofa or chair, but don't forget that they can also be impactful on patio and lawn furniture as well.

# 3 Update Your Look with Rugs and Door Mats

Indoor and outdoor rugs are an amazing way to update the look of your home.

  • Place them on your:
    • Sunporch
    • Patio
    • Dining Room
    • Family Room
    • Bedroom
    • Playroom
    • Office

Door mats can also be added to your entry way.

*Helpful Tip - I place a door mat on the outside of my garage door and patio door, as well as, the inside to help trap extra dirt, gravel and sand that my family and fur babies carry in on their feet.

#4 Display or Throw a Knitted Throw or Sherpa Throw Over the Chair or Sofa

Throws add a pop of color and make any room feel really cozy on a cool summer night or even colder winter night. 

*Helpful Tip - I love to display my throws on a blanket ladder. (Check out our weekly antique auction where you'll find great ladders almost any time of  year.)

#5 Add Seasonal Scents with Warmers

Change out the smells with the season and use warmers to introduce that look in your home. Not only will they be visually pleasing, but will also use the scense of smell to stir up memories and a welcoming feel in your house.
