As you know from previous posts, Mr. Bluebird and I went to Branson, Missouri for a Spring getaway. While there, we enjoyed a day of antiquing.
I didn't come home with much, but I DID come home with the determination to find some of the things I liked in Branson at a cheaper price!
This green hurricane lamp won my heart, but the price was a deal breaker.
Same thing with these old bowls. Pricey, pricey and pricey!
What's a girl to do?
Well, we got home from vacation on a Sunday, but I still had Monday off....so, I headed out Monday morning to my favorite local antique mall.
I was on the hunt for a hurricane lamp and for $12.00, this one came home with me.
Loving it in my spring vignette. The color just makes my heart beat a little faster!
I also found an old green bowl for $22.00 - far less than the $50 plus bowls I saw on vacation. For now, it has a prideful place in my China cabinet. (Let's also take a momentary pause and admire my super cute cow cutting board........the little metal numbers are vintage livestock tags I found at a flea market last summer.)
I also brought home this amazing crated water bottle for $40! A total steal.
Although I was hoping to come home with "vacation" finds from Missouri, I am pretty delighted with my "closer to home" finds.
Have you found any "near by" treasures lately?
Thanks for stopping by,
