Now, I'm still going to be doing my "housing item" of the day thread despite these links (because it's fun and cool, yo), but I think you all really need to keep an eye on these two threads (note you will have to log into Wizard101 Central to view these):
Free Furniture Items: Items you can just snag from around the world.
Boss Drop Furniture Items: Items you get from farming bosses.
Those are going to help you when housing goes live for sure . . . because I know you all want 20 unicorn statues out front of your houses like I do.
