Good Morning everyone
Please come out and play with us! Share pictures or just tell us about any great treasures you've found. Items may be old or new and we always love to hear prices.
Let's get this party started!
Between a trip to the little town south and estate sales in the city, I came home with "loot"
A small watercolor -- love the colors $7.50
A brass plant stand (painted black which I think is a much better look) with a marble top.
A magazine rack -- much needed -- $17
Cannele molds -- copper -- really pricey -- $20 up each -- found these three at TJ Maxx for $10 total!!! Would have liked to have found another one or two packages!!!!
If anyone goes to TJ Maxx and find these, buy them for me, I'll be happy to pay you for them and the postage it takes to get them to me!!!
I've wanted them "forever"!!! But they were too pricey. Now I can make the special little cakes but alas, only 3 at a time!
A Portugese copper pan -- tin lined.
$5 at Goodwill
A silver plated centerpiece - $20
I can see it on the dining room table filled with flowers for a dinner party or a ladies luncheon.
Love this little ice bucket! So "Downton Abbey"! Complete with tongs -- would be a great wine cooler for a small half bottle of white wine as well!
It was pricier -- $25
But worth it, I think!
Wow Martha, you really did get a haul. All of your items are so unique I can't decide what I like best. Really, really great pieces.
Have you asked TJMaxx to call their other stores to see if they have them?
WOW, you scored Linderhof. Love all your finds, good job. I need to get shopping, lol
Martha, your magazine rack is wonderful. You may already know the history of the "Canterbury" as we call them in England. They were originally used to hold sheet music. I don't know the age of yours but the antique versions fetch a good sum of money.
I swear, Linderhof, you find the best things EVER!!! I love each and every one of your finds.
My find this weekend was Pottery Barn Carson plates. They were available during the holidays for $10.25 per plate. I convinced myself that I absolutely did not need any more plaid plates even though I loved the soft coloring on these. Even today, the plates are selling for $6.25 each online at PB and for much more on eBay. I happened to be in PB to return an item that I received damaged and noticed that the store had the Carson plates on sale for $4.50 per plate. Well, that seemed like a pretty good bargain, so I picked up eight. When I checked out, the plates were actually $2.57 per plate! So, even with tax, I got eight plates for under $25! I was thrilled.
Gracie -- score! Why only 8 at that price? I would have bought 12 or even 24!
LOL! They only had eight.
Gracie, your plates are lovely. It was meant to be...sometimes patience pays off. Imagine how upset you would be if you had paid full price?
LOVE THOSE PLATES!!!!
This isn't "home" decor, but it was a good deal!!
$118. zip around wallet from Ralph Lauren for $29.50.
Martha,WOW!!You really did bring home the loot.LOL.I like everything,but my heart is loving that silver centerpiece vase.I cant wait to see all your different flower arrangements you will make.Now I am wanting to pick up several silver pieces.TIMELESS!!
Gracie,LOVE those plaid plates.Oh my you did get a steal of a deal too.If I could find some here,I'd have them out all year.
A1SB,love the animal wallet.Great deal too.
Sklyer,thank you again for waking up extra early on Mondays to post this thread.Love seeing what members find & share.
I got these 2 Home Interior pics for 10.00each,from a lady on the yard sale FB page.One is 24x32in. and the other one is 16x24in.I will be changing out these come spring or next month.Those pages are so addictive.LOL.I love that they are country.So relaxing to look at.
This is the smaller pic.I has a ripple in the corner.I believe I can fix.I like it anyway.
You're right, Skyler, I probably would have felt a little gypped if I had paid full price which is another reason that I generally don't go to after-Christmas sales. I don't want to see how much I could have saved had I taken a risk and waited...LOL!
Always1StepBehind, you found a good bargain. I think I want to go to work at a Ralph Lauren outlet store so that I can get first pick of the merchandise AND an employee discount.
Jackierenette, I'll bet you will really enjoy your finds once you get them hung. Good bargain hunting.
Love the plates Gracie, very cute and fabulous price.
Always, I LOVE that wallet, so cute.
Jackie, great find on the art work. Nice price too.
I love Monday Morning Finds. Great Finds!
Martha, you do find amazing items!
Gracie, pretty plates and great price.
A1SB,love the animal wallet. I "always"
love animal prints, LOL
Jackie, I would have bought those prints too!
I won an auction on Goodwill online for this miniature tea set.
I already have the mini book and a larger one called "Memories of Christmas Tea" (or something like that, it is packed away and I don't want to dig it out just to see the title, LOL) I also own the cup and saucer and kept the tin that the tea came in so I create a vignette at Christmas using my items and this mini set will be added to it next Christmas.
I paid $9, which is quite a bit less than it is listed for at Replace*ments Ltd. WooHoo!
That is a sweet find, Candy. Congratulations on winning the auction.
I actually have "finds" this week! The end tables in the LR were bugging me since they were made for today's modern furniture and not our smaller scale stuff. I found the perfect thing on CL. We had to go to Memphis to get them, but it was worth it. They're in fabulous condition. Now we can return the giant ones we were "furniture-sitting" to our friends who are "furniture-sitting" a bunch of our stuff that we don't have the space for.
So, here's our end table find along with my mom's old sofa and the lamps from my step dad who passed away, so they're special. The lady that the tables belonged to is dying of cancer and she bought the tables when she was setting up house in 1958, so they're kind of special too.
Now I can work on putting together a room that works. This message has been edited. Last edited by: *~Bella~*,
And they are fabulous too Bella. Love them, you did good.
Christmas Candy,I love the Chistmas tea set.Happy you won the bid.
Bella,those tables are perfect and the lamps too.
Christie, those work so well in your room. I agree with you that they were worth the trip.
Christmas Candy, that's a sweet tea set.
Bella -- those are perfect for your space!
That small watercolor is wonderful!
plant stand is precious, love that style.
Never can have too many magazine racks to hold our inspirational editions, especially one as special as that one!
Great molds at a wonderful price!
You STOLE that Portugese copper pan!
The sp centerpiece is so precious and the plate edge helps to contain droppings from falling off the table.
OH that little ice bucket is so precious!!! AND so worth the price! I think is my favorite of your finds.
OMG, I would LOVE to follow you on one of your treasure hunts!!!
Gracie, I love those plates! BOY did you ever get a GREAT price!!!
I LOVE anything RL! That is a great look and size too! Good catch!
Nice prints, don't you just love it when you find something you love for a great deal?
What cute cups come with that set! Congrats for winning the auction! You mean there is still 'room' at your house for more Christmas decor?
I am glad you found what you love, I have a special affection for anything Duncan Phyfe and that period of style. They look to be in great condition too.
Christie, your end tables were a super find and look great with the sofa and lamps. They have obviously been loved and cared for and I'm sure the owner was glad they were going to a good home!
MR, well...it is a miniature set, LOL!! Actually, since every horizontal surface has something Christmas, I have been hanging things from the ceiling, LOL!!
By that, I mean the little Mark Roberts fairies, oversized decorated balls, and oversized peppermint candies that hang in the kitchen since it is all peppermint and gingerbread.
The large Mark Roberts fairy is too big to hang and he sits in the small decorated rocker in my living room, but my 16 mon. old DGD was quite annoyed that he was in "her" rocker and promptly yanked him out of there so she could sit and rock in it!
SOOO many great finds this week. I'm stuck on jury duty so I'm really enjoying the pictures.
Thank you all for sharing!
Thanks for sharing everyone!
Martha, my favorite is your plant stand.
Graciepj - great deal on your plates! Glad you got what you wanted and what a great price!
Always - 75% off is always a good deal.
jackierenette-pretty pictures. My parents had a similar mill print when I was growing up.
ChristmasCandy-I am good at buying on eBay, not so good at selling on there! Great fun set for you.
Bella - I love your tables. My MIL offered me her "telephone table" that was similar shape and I thought, no we don't have an old phone like that. I never thought to turn it this way and use it as an end table! Darn. Looks lovely in your room!
Hang in there! Hope they won't keep you too long!
Thank you for starting MMF's each week! I really enjoy coming to see the treasures everyone posts!
Dacia-we have a phone bench that I picked up when I was stationed in England. It's probably different than the one your MIL had and although we do have old phones to put on it, we use it for the hall lamp. The space below it has turned into a filing cabinet due to lack of space in the house and the long drawer is storage for the gazillion photos from pre-digital camera times and the seat is one of the cats favorite napping places. It comes in pretty handy.
What a great use for that piece. I'd love to have something like that in my entry.
I looked at my TJ Maxx, but couldn't find any. Hope you find more somewhere!
I have enjoyed seeing everyone's finds! This is one of my favorite threads every week!
Thanks Cocok -- TJ Maxx sometimes has "weird" things on it's closeout racks that I've never seen regular price in the store!
Last year it was Agraria potpourris (http://www.agrariahome.com/bitter-orange) -- only saw a few of them after Christmas marked down -- NEVER saw them before and I ALWAYS check the potpourri and candle aisle (and I've never seen them again)
This year, I guess it is these copper molds!
So take what you can get and be ever vigilant after Christmas for you may find some expensive treasure really cheap!
Oh I forgot we got a new 55inch tv last Sat.Hubby is in love with it. I like it but not like him.LOL.
Bella,love the phone table/seat.Lovely.
Christie, great "lamp" bench, LOL!! Glad the kitty enjoys it too!
Martha, I checked my Home Goods which is the decor portion of my TJ Maxx and there weren't any of those molds there either. Sorry I couldn't help you out.
Great finds & treasures! I checked my local TJM and nothing. Also tried Marshalls, the sister store, nothing. Sorry. The good news is that spring is getting closer everyday & that means yard sales! I don't need anything, believe me but love searching for others.
Just have to say that all your finds this week are lovely. Once again thanks Everyone for the MMF thread!
~Like sands through the hourglass
~So are the days of our lives
I've not had time to chat but did manage to pop in to have a look-see at the goodies this week. Great finds again! LOVE the plant stand and Bella's tables. Those are to die for! The gossip bench is beautiful too.
A week or two ago I found this beat up old cognac box for just a little cash out of pocket. Had no real plans for it and stuck it by the kitchen door next to the wine fridge.
It is the best spot to drop my handbag, who'd have thought
ETA: oh dear, I need to polish the stainless!
A 55" TV! If you have not had one in your house before, it CHANGES the way you watch TV forever! ENJOY!
Beau's Rose, LOVE your new avatar photo!
Love the cognac box! Great woodtone on it!
OH wow AND a place to 'plop' your bag, gotta love that second surprising use!
I am in the process of creating a 'plopping' station near the back door, we have one by the front door, but I use both regularly, so need a place to put things down and put them before leaving the house so I do not forget anything.
Not at all how I thought it would be used! We were thinking of just breaking it apart for use as graphic "signs". LOL I think that I'll pick up some tiny bun feet to lift it off the floor though. The wood on that end is lousy anyway so no worries of damage.
