You could furnish an entire dorm room at Sohome, an unhip, cavernous, street-level Soho loft stacked with sheets, towels, rugs, lamps, mini trash cans, tacky wall hangings, and even flip flops for the walk to the shower down the hall. And judging by its proximity to NYU, many people probably have. This poor man’s Bed Bath & Beyond, in business for nearly 18 years, will close its doors for good in December 2007, another victim of sky-high New York City rents. What this means for shoppers is liquidation sales, and there are plenty of deals to take advantage of here, most notably in high-thread-count and Egyptian cotton sheets. Sure, many of them are sateen in varying shades of peach and sage, but basic whites and cottons are far more plentiful than at bargain stores like Century 21. There are big-ticket items for sale, too, including beds, chairs, floor lamps and rugs, all with significantly marked-down prices. If you can overlook the rotating shelf display in the window and some of the tacky items inside, you’ll walk out with a pile of home basics for a steal.
