Small Town Vintage Shopping.... Fabulous Finds....

I spent the day working in Seguin Texas on Wednesday... and since I had 8 appointments scheduled, I knew I wouldn't have time to run by Glory B's Cottage in Geronimo for a little last minute shopping....and a visit with sweet Beverly...
 but on my way back from lunch, I drove past the Antique Mall in Seguin where the Curious Boys have a huge booth... so I thought... "why not stop... I've got 10-minutes to spare"... and I'm so glad I did... look at what I found!
Frames.. yes I love empty frames... and this pretty metal one was in a small booth that Beverly maintains in the Antique Mall...
and I had just the place to put it... in my guest room framing one of my sweet snow people...
and then there were these beauties... a set of 3 large Mercury Glass Candle Sticks with Hurricane glasses... all 3 in perfect condition...
so I played with candle sizes, and decided on the short fat ones... but I didn't have 3 of either color... so tomorrow, on my Friday before Christmas day off... I'll be candle shopping... for the short fat candles...
all 3 one color... red, or green, or maybe even white?

and the best part of all... the price $$$$$!
Candle Sticks with Hurricanes... $19.99 for the set!  Better than that... 20% off sale made them $16.00.... S-C-O-R-E!
and the pretty little metal frame... $4.50... which I thought was an amazing price for the pretty swirled frame painted chippy white...

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
down here in French Lique!

That good of a deal needs to be strapped to the hood of the car for the ride home! I'm voting white candles so you leave 'em out all year long.
Merry Christmas from the North Texas Pole to way down there in French Lique Texas!
XOXO

Your finds are wonderful. When I saw the price of the fabulous mercury glass candle sticks and the frames, my heart skipped a beat. Up here in New York, you might have gotten the white frame for what you paid for the whole lot. I'm definitely jealous.
