Our New Go-To Store Is Just Like Target, But Cheaper

Hey, you, come here. Lean in close, because we’re about to share with you what is arguably the most delightful discovery that we’ve made all year — there exists a store just like Target, but cheaper. It lives right below the mythical realm of things like unicorns and Starbucks cups that magically refill themselves. Unlike those things that we only wish were real, though, this store is actually legit. It’s called Anko, and it’s obviously destined to become your new shopping obsession.

So, basically, Christmas just came early for you, friend. Sure, you may already have your holiday shopping list knocked out for 2019 (unless you’re like us, in which case, let the mad dash ensue). But this is the gift that keeps on giving, because it’s sure to save you some money in 2020. The budget-friendly prices — paired with its products’ Target-like appeal — may even inspire you to go ahead and knock out your holiday shopping for next year.

An Australian export, Anko’s flagship U.S. location is located in the Seattle-Lynwood area. But if you don’t reside in the Pacific Northwest, no worries. Not only does Anko have an online store, they also offer free shipping on orders over $25. To give you an idea of the kind of gems you can find, here are a few picks currently chilling in our shopping cart.

What kid wouldn’t love to cook up some faux-burgers and ‘dogs on this sweet grill? They’ll pretend to scarf down the wooden patties, but you’ll seriously eat up this killer price.

If you are thinking about getting a head start on next year’s holiday decorations, these 24-inch tall glittered trees would be great to place around the house. Bonus? They’re currently 40 percent off, so you can really stock up.

As you can see, it’s sort of like what you’d expect if Target and Ikea met, fell in love and made a baby. Then named that baby Anko. Oh, did we mention their products are designed in-house, made with sustainable materials and ethically sourced? Sign us all the way up.
