The Pottery Barn Friends and Family sale just started and you can take an additional 20% off the whole site–including sale finds!–with code FRIENDS at checkout. While there are some exclusions, I scoured ALL of their sites (baby, kids, teen, dorm and plain ol’ PB) to find the best deals for you. The linen cabinet from the girls’ bathroom above is from Pottery Barn. See their whole bathroom right here.

I got a question earlier in the week whether or not the sales I find will be better than Black Friday Sales. Many will because these are sales on top of sales and some are things they are clearancing out, so they may not even exist come November! Although, the mindset is definitely right–don’t wait until Black Friday, this is a once yearly sale and a lot of these would make great holiday gifts, too!

Click the arrows on either side of the pictures, to scroll through all the deals in each category. I put the price at checkout (using code FRIENDS) along with the original price, so you can see how much you’ll save.


DECOR (Including Mirrors, Frames, Signs, Plants and a really cute pair of slippers!)



TEXTILES (Including Rugs, Pillows, Bed Skirts And Window Treatments!)


While these are all the best discounts (seriously, some are a whopping 75% off!), keep in mind their regularly priced items are also 20% off, so if there’s something you’ve been eyeing (for me–it’s this farmhouse wood bench that’s now just $80!), now is the time to pounce! Don’t forget to use the code FRIENDS to get that 20% off! Shop the whole sale right here. 





What do you think?

  1. I have one panel of those pom pom drapes and have been wanting a second- so thanks for linking those! I wanted to say how sorry I am about Charly. My heart is with you. I and hope you are having a beautiful weekend.

    I LOVE PBkids tunics/cover ups for the littles–so I appreciate you posting this and reminding me of the sale! If you plan on hitting the pool next summer with Polly, these are AWESOME. And on sale x2.

    ps. I’m sorry about charly :(

    Chris and Julia,
    Quick question… I am struggling to find a good flood light for my inside recessed lighting. They are all either to yellow or to blue! I thought maybe since you had the perfect light bulb for lamps etc you might share what you use in your recessed lights. Thanks so much, Aimee Dotter
