Having said that, there are lots of places where you can getjust the items you desire if you are willing to spend some time shopping.

Online Shopping

This can be a boon as well a bane. You’ll have to pour overvarious home decor websites and even general e-stores to compare prices,materials and craftsmanship or you might get lucky and like something in yourfirst surfing session itself. It may even be available right away and bewithin budget. In that case go for it. Be prepared to form yourown opinion of individual sites, given the dearth of proven lists of preferredplaces to shop unless you're targeting high-end items.

Export Surplus

Surplus stock is a great way to pick-up stuff atbargain prices. Some exporters’ associations publish their own directorieslisting rejected or surplus stocks. If export surplus is your way of saving money,remember that some items may be genuine surplus while othersmay be rejects with some inconspicuous flaws or manufacturing defects. Again, it is preferable to "look-touch-feel" the items youare interested in before actually handing over the cash.
