First up are two things....One a lamp I found at the Alabaster thrift store. Even at the thrift store, I spent more than I wanted ($50) but I absolutely fell in love with this lamp. Actually, I didn't buy it when I first saw it. I went home and couldn't stop thinking about it. I went back. And I think because it the price tag in the thrift store it was still there. It's gorgeous.
Beside the lamp is a vintage treasure, also purchased in a thrift store. This one was $12.00. It is from South Carolina. A print representing the the basket weavers. There is a tag on the back of the store it was purchased in. I would love to find out more about it. All of the pieces of the dress and basket are hand cut. The colors are vibrant. It is dear.
Have you ever been to the Nations Longest Garage Sale? It literally runs in length from Kentucky to Gadsden, Alabama. It was there that I found this precious find. This ring, real gold. The setting is unique and detailed. I am not sure if the stone is real. Probably not, I am thinking it is costume. But have you priced vintage costume jewelry? Gasp!. This ring was $25.00 and had my name on it.
I purchased this cute monkey lamp at a sale. Again, more than I should have paid, perhaps, at a garage sale. But he is cute. He was $10.00. I have him listed on my Baby's Gone Shoppin' sale blog because I didn't have anywhere to put him. My SIL's mother is a decorator, she came in and plopped him there. And there he sits.
Read here about my boxes I found. Love these. I have a box fetish.
And of course my marble cheese serving piece from Lenox that I got for a steal at $2.98!
