In fact, I think I could spend $2,000 pretty quickly. It's the one thing you never ponder when you buy a home: all the money you'll spend on stuff for your house.

The Times Union is reporting the new West Elm Store at Stuyvesant Plaza on Western Avenue in Albany will open October 5th, and they are celebrating the opening by giving away a $2,000 shopping spree! You can enter to win here. The deadline to sign up is October 1.

So what is West Elm all about? According to their website, West Elm sells everything from ',,,sofas and tables to bedding and vases...made with one goal in mind: to help our customers express their personal style at home and in the world.' The Times Union says they are operated by the same company that runs the Pottery Barn.
