AliExpress is not just cheap random items with no particular purpose, with some research you can find quality items that would cost 2x or more in your local stores. Light fixtures, wall stickers, rugs, wall clocks – you name it.
Most of these things are already made in China, so why pay more to the middlemen?
Here are some of the unique home decor items from AliExpress.
Animal print rug (imitation)
6 print options
Price: $10.29 – 12.74
A polyester imitation with an anti-slip bottom lining. The size of the rug is approx. 120 x 75 cm (~43.3 x 29.5 in.).
Decorative creative wall “trophies”
Original wooden wall “trophies”. Some assembly required.
5 color options
It's a cool concept and the price is right. I'm just not sure why there are 5 different color options since they are not visible, but anyway…
Not automatic, requires no batteries to run. Before you use it, you need to dispense the paste to the device for it to be distributed. Some people in comments have reported that the plastic is thin, which is expected for the price. Comes with the toothbrush holder.
3D-imitation cold acrylic light
Many different designs
(skip to 1:56 for the review)
The lights are acrylic: they are always cold, and you can't burn yourself on them. The “bulbs” are easily interchangeable.
There are a ton of different designs: here is a store that sells just 3D lamps.
