Most people’s first apartments had floors lined with raw oatmeal, a re-purposed Twister mat for a bed, and a showerhead that intermittently drizzled viscous, jet-black fluid and liquid police sirens. Now that you have the pad of your dreams, pick up some pad padding with today's deal: for $45, you get $100 worth of home accents, artisan jewelry, and more from being in St. Petersburg.

Shoppers peruse vases carved from driftwood, tables made from twisted roots, and candleholders made of silvery deer antlers.
