Last-Minute Dorm Essentials

Put off your back-to-college shopping? Or maybe you’re down to the final few items?


Either way, Dawley Farm Village has you covered.  


With one stop, you can knock your list out. Take a look at some of these fun finds.

I t doesn’t get any simpler than these comforter sets. They come in a bunch of colors and patterns, and each set includes the comforter, sham, flat sheet, fitted sheet and pillowcase for that classic dorm twin XL bed. Plus you get a storage tote and two towels! $69.99 at Kohl’s.  


What is college without a futon? This grey and white chevron sleeper sofa is practical and fun. It easily clicks into four positions from fully upright to flat and includes a firm foam mattress. $139.99 on sale at Target.

We don’t control your dorm food, but we can help improve the water. This Brita mini plus six- cup filtration pitcher (in seafoam green, let’s note) fits perfectly in your dorm or apartment fridge and removes a variety of hacontaminants. $15.99 on sale at Target.

Before you know it, it will be fall – and then winter – and you will want slippers. Famous Footwear has tons of options, but we liked the men’s Doug moccasin slipper ($44.99) and the women’s tatum slipper by Dr. Scholl’s ($29.00).

They’re colorful, they’re all sizes and you actually will use them. From cereal to ramen and chocolate chip cookie dough, it all goes in a bowl. $12.99 at Target.

Maybe it’s this one, or maybe it’s a different piece, but add a bit of inspiration to your dorm room. College can get tough, and you need some little reminders to keep you going! This wooden box art sign reminds us to enjoy the ride. $12.99 on sale at Kohl's.
