Most bathroom specialty stores will have a catalog for customers to look through, should they not find something on the showroom floor.
Another place that Emily could look for bathroom sinks is in a hardware store. Usually, one of the larger chain hardware stores will carry a large assortment of bathroom sinks.
Stores such as Home Depot and Lowe’s will carry many sinks. You can’t find bathroom sinks at smaller hardware stores, however, the assortment will not be as large.
