The kitchen is the heart of a home, the room where family members share gossip and laughs, and teenagers prepare for dates by practice-kissing frozen poultry. Spruce up your home’s heart with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of gifts, domestic accessories, and more at Everything but the Kitchen Sink in Hockessin.
Recently selected as upstate Delaware’s place for Best Home Accessories by Delaware Today magazine, Everything but the Kitchen Sink kits out kitchens, living rooms, and caves with more than 80,000 essential items. Two floors and 15,000 square feet contain enough china, cutlery, and culinary gadgets to feed a massive herd of gourmet-hungry guinea pigs. Impress friends with a pair of Reed & Barton Weston candlesticks ($95/pair), or keep beverages at a ferociously cool temperature with the 8-inch alligator ice scoop from Arthur Court ($25). Fill kitchens with cookware by brands such as Cuisinart, Le Creuset, and Emile Henry or cutlery such as the Kyocera 3-inch paring knife ($25). Le Jacquard table linens seduce diners, and the OXO can opener ($16.50) simultaneously unlocks tuna cans and the hearts of persnickety felines.
Everything but the Kitchen Sink proffers a plethora of trappings for the bed, bath, and garden, as well as gifts, stationery, and items for children. Violate glove-slap duel etiquette in a classy way by sending invitations exclusively on Cranes ribbon-frame note cards ($15), and delight the senses of that special mailman by lathering yourself up with Crabtree Summer Hill scented soap ($7.50).
