In the original Gilmore Girls series, there’s a hilariously chaotic episode titled “Scene in a Mall,” in which our favorite mother-daughter duo Lorelai and Rory ditch their busy schedules to go window shopping at the mall like Rosalind Russell and Ava Gardner (they’re both skint, okay?). They bump into a frazzled Emily, who buys everything, anything she sets her sights on at whim due to her frustration with Richard and his caterpillar mustache.
While the adorable essentials in this shopping guide would probably not be up to snuff for Emily Gilmore and her set of dinner-table glass apples, Lorelai would definitely approve of these finds.
Whether you’re in a quaint two-bedroom house in a small town or an apartment in the city, shop these Lorelai Gilmore-approved home essentials to liven up your space.
