Welcome to the second installment of Tuesday Show and Tell! This week, I have a small assortment of goodies, but it’s definitely a case of quality over quantity. These items came from two different church tag sales. Let’s get started!
I always check out the garden and basket tables at tag sales for cool planters like this. I love the rustic, natural bark. I’d use this for a houseplant or as a container for a floral arrangement. It was 5o cents.
This lovely birdbath planter is vintage Lefton china from Japan. It’s hand painted and numbered underneath. I have a thing for birds, and was drawn to this immediately. I paid a dollar. And yes, that is dirt inside that I failed to clean before I took the photo. Otherwise it’s in excellent condition.
I am in love with these goblets! My mom taught me years ago to seek out heavy glass drinking glasses. She once scored a large clear set like these at an estate sale. I was so excited to find these in blue! I only wish there were more than four in the set. They may make an appearance in next week’s Thanksgiving tablescape! I paid just three dollars for the set.
This is a ginormous roll of double faced red satin ribbon. I don’t know exactly how much, but I’d guess at least 30 yards. It’s gorgeous and a steal at $3 for the entire roll! Just in time for Christmas.
I found this vintage tree stand under a table. It weighs a ton. I couldn’t believe I was only charged a dollar for it! These sell for about $25 on eBay. I think it has a kind of Art Deco style to it. And again, you’re looking at dirt and cobwebs!
Finally, the cat’s meow…a vintage chandelier! I spotted this in a box under a table. It doesn’t have crystals like many that are similar to this, but I love it just the same. It’s large and has 10 lights. I dragged it up to the check out table and asked for a price. Five dollars. WHAT!!!!!! I put on my best poker face and handed over the cash before she changed her mind. Once I made it to my car, I did the happy dance 🙂
I dream of one day having a chandelier in every room of my house (bathrooms included). This find just got me a little closer to that goal.
Thanks for stopping by! I’ll be sharing one of my favorite door decor projects tomorrow by a talented blogger from the Deck the Home Blog Hop.
See you then!
