Another Beautiful Thrifty Find!

 
Every year after Christmas, usually on the 26th, I make my way over to the nearby Lamington General Store which is this wonderful old 1890's restored general store that is filled with the most beautiful things. They tupically have all their Christmas goodies on sale for anywhere from 30 to 50 percent! This year I fell completely in love with this Victorian globe and simply had to have it.
 
 
It was originally was priced at $35.99, but was 40% off so I ended up paying just a little over $23 with tax! I just love all the detail and the gorgeous patina.
 
 
Inside the globe there is a glass cylinder where you place your candle.


I was so thrilled with this globe and it's price that I just had to buy 2. (There were 3 total in the store so my sister Kim bought the last one!!!)
 
 
I have no particular place in mind of where to put them, but you can be sure that they will show up in at least one or two of my posts this year!!!
 
Hope you are enjoying a wonderful day!!!
