Welcome to the daily series “In Search Of,” where we look high and low on Krrb for one-of-a-kind items that we must have now! Today, it’s all about “Gold” and we’ve got loads of it.

Just call us prospectors because we’re hunting for anything and everything gold-leafed, gold-dipped and gold-accented. Gold accents are so hot for fall 2013 and we can’t get enough of the Midas touch. Find a way to incorporate a little gold into your home to make it feel extra special.
