We’ve rounded up 5 spots in Charlottesville for January home goods shopping. It’s National Organization Month and you + your home deserve this glow-up inspiration!

Adding an assortment of candles to any nook offers a warm and inviting feeling for a living room or office.

For those of us who anxiously await the chime of new year bells to roll around in order to make some headway in the home organization department, we’re with you.

Given that January happens to be National Organization Month, what better reason is there to get in to a loved – albeit neglected – room and give it a little attention? The concept of the White Sale (while some may be unfamiliar) marks a fabulous time to head to some local home goods stores and snag new (and on-sale) linens, sheets, and home decor items to give your bathroom, bedroom, or living room a gentle & reasonably priced Glow-Up.

We’ve included five stores to check out in Charlottesville that offer beautifully curated items for the bed and bath. Who knows if home goods shopping is on your radar while visiting town, but we’re about to set you straight and point you in the right direction.

Sure, Cville has your World Markets and Home Goods, but what’s better than ducking into a local favorite guided by yours truly? Your next treasure awaits: take home something unique and special that will remind you of Charlottesville and give your home the credit it deserves to create a warm, inviting space for you, your family, and friends this winter.

Before we dig in, we would be remiss if we didn’t highlight the amazing work of popular local food & lifestyle blogger, Kath Younger of Kath Eats Real Food. Not only does she share amazing tips on her blog, but she’s got great advice to offer. Kath says, “When embarking on a big (or small) home organization project, just remember to take it one step at a time. Change can be exciting, and when executed the right way, can mean endless hours of enjoyment in any room. Give in to the glow-up and get ready to transform your spaces in a way that allows both form and function to coexist beautifully.”

Take a look at how she organizes her spaces and get inspired!
