As far as we're concerned, there aren't many things that delight us more than scoring a cool find at a price tag you can afford. Even if you do have the money, that gratifying feeling of getting a good deal on something you love never fails to satisfy. So we went on a treasure hunt for some beautiful bargains all under $30, and our virtual carts are overflowing with stylish pieces. Scroll down to see our picks.
"When I saw the price tag on this beautiful and luxe marble and copper cutting board, my jaw dropped. It’s a no-brainer."
"This modernist dome-shaped pendant is on sale at an unbelievable price. It’s totally versatile and has just the right amount of edge."
"I love this colorful and graphic vase. What a cute housewarming gift for the modern design lovers you know… or for yourself!"
"I love the smell of incense burning, but sometimes the smoke can be a little intoxicating in our small apartment. This one will have the same sensory impact without the fumes, and it looks super pretty too."
"Moving from the humid, tropical climate of Australia to the dry desert air of California definitely impacted my skin. I love this stylish little humidifier that quenches my skin and looks cool on my office desk too."
"Copper coasters for $6, I mean I'm not sure I need any other reason to love these. Cheap, chic, and cheerful."
"OK is one of my favorite shops in L.A. I'm a sucker for anything black-on-black, including time."
"If I'm being practical, I should be buying a gold shelf to hang in the tiny entryway of my new studio apartment. Space is very limited, but having somewhere to prop my keys and mail is essential, no matter how small the apartment is."
"The more whimsical side of me thinks I should spend the $30 on a metallic pineapple tumbler instead. Having a couple of super stylish tumblers at my place would finally give me the push I need to give mixology a try. Plus, I would ultimately be saving on cocktails, right?"
"Also (and I'm definitely breaking the $30 rule at this point, if we're adding everything up), I really can't pass up candle holders that are $1.99 each. That's about as much as ordering extra guac. And they're so cute!"
"My style is monochrome and minimal, but I love to add metallic accents for a luxe touch. I’d use this gorgeous pebble dish as a catchall for my jewellery."
"This cheeky pint-sized cocktail kit offers a little bit of first-class luxury when you’re stuck in economy! The retro tin comes with a tiny flask of craft tonic syrup, a bar spoon and linen coaster; so chic! I’ve had my eye on this as a gift, but I might just treat myself."
"Kitchen sheers are one of the culinary tools I can’t live without. I love this one that comes with a magnetic case because I don’t have to dig through a drawer to find the scissors. I simply grab them from the fridge and use to snip herbs, open cheese packages, or cut bacon right into the sauté pan."
"When you can't afford to buy a neon sign, this is the next best thing."
"To be honest, I say some pretty awful things when I'm hungry, so this stationery would be the perfect way to apologize."
