soapstone board [$10]

I literally love a good find. I thrive off of it. Specifically when the quality far surpasses the price.

My favorite not so secret store, where 9 times out of ten I can count on stylish, affordable home decor pieces – can you guess? Marshalls. Sure, sometimes it’s hit and miss, other times the shelves house cheesy decor, but with a little patience and some digging, look at what you can uncover.

On my most recent shopping trip, which was originally for a housewarming gift, I of course found an item I could not live without.

Meet my soapstone board.

Original price [$45]. I paid [$10]. Totally worth it.

  • meats and cheese platter
  • fruits and veggies board
  • sushi
  • chocolate
  • wine and bottle holder

Other than the obvious, it’s also versatile for a home decor piece. Use it as a tray to showcase your jewelry, display your favorite glassware, use it in a vignette grouped with other frames or art pieces.

Can you tell I absolutely love this soapstone board?

Best of all (besides the price) it’s such a pretty marbled gray with green crystal like accents. The perfect thing to hide my ugly laminate kitchen countertops.
