Last week, Kayla stayed the entire week with me and we hit up several thrift stores in Rome, GA.. We ended up finding the most at the Re-store and at a little thrift store on Shorter Avenue.. Most of what I got was glass! Then, Saturday night my friends and I went to the monthly antique and collectibles auction here in Calhoun.. We had so much fun, as usual.. I just couldnt wait to show you my pretties!
When we were thrifting, I started to run into a lot of those cute little jars with the lids for really cheap.. I figured I could make them into small apothecary jars, so I got more glass candlesticks too as I found them. I paid from between 50 cents to $1.49 for each jar, but no more than that!
I had also been looking for a small decanter for mouthwash for my bathroom.. I found one of those cute glass salad dressing bottles for 50 cents and I think it works great.. Also a pretty little glass to go along with it for 35 cents..
At the auction on Saturday, I didn't buy a lot BUT what I bought was awesome! I only spent $62, including tax and fees, and I got a mini crystal chendelier for my bathroom, a picture/sconce, an open-back frame, and a set of coffee and end tables that need some TLC.
The chandelier is perfect for my bathroom. It is a small brass chandelier with crystals all over it. It's VERY heavy and has beautiful details. I ended up spending most of my money for it, at $40.
The coffee and end table set needed a lot of work BUT they had GREAT legs and I got the whole set for $10!
The frame is oval and a hideous color of green BUT it has GREAT details and is very heavy wood.. I got it for $3.
And last but not least, I got a really pretty picture of roses that has a sconce on it. The auctioneer went down to $1 and no one bid, so he asked if anyone wanted it for free!! Hello, me!!! I shot my number up fast. You cant beat free! I plan to change the gold to silver and put it in my bedroom since the other colors all match..I'd say it was a pretty good week!
