As soon as I walked into the outlet I saw five Delft tiles laying on one of the tables. If you have read my blog, even for two seconds, you know how much I love anything blue and white. I grabbed the tiles and started walking to the book section.
That's when I saw it! My heart
started racing. I knew I had to grab
it before anyone else did. What was
something like this doing in GW?
Were my eyes deceiving me?
I ran frantically to the other side of the warehouse, grabbed my treasure and headed immediately to the cashier. I was so afraid someone would tell me it wasn't for sale or that it was already spoken for. I laid the delft tiles on the scale and all five tiles cost a grand total of 90 cents. Then the cashier looked at my large treasure and said she didn't need to weigh it and ... how about $2.00?
I almost peed in my pants!!
So you want to see what I got for $2.90?
Yes, a gorgeous hand blown demijohn in perfect condition for $2.00!! Wahoo!
Hey, maybe I need to frequent the outlet more often.
A few days ago I showed you pictures of Antiquing On The Gulf Coast with all the glorious demijohns for sale. I have a very large one I bought years ago at Smith's Antiques before they became so expensive. I have also collected others at various places and I would have loved to take one of these home from this trip but not at $125 and up. Now I am so glad I didn't buy one.
Here is my new 29" bottle with a couple others from my collection.
Please don't hate me. I inherited the gene of finding great bargains from my dad. He was an antique dealer and as a child we always went to flea markets, estate sales and garage sales where dad would bring home all these fabulous treasures. Thanks Dad!
I will be showing
off my latest find at the following parties:
Thanks for visiting and I love to read your comments.
