Milk Glass Lamps and Buffet Cabinet

I found these old milk glass lamps at Goodwill last weekend. I've seen milk glass lamps lik those being posted by fellow bloggers and they were having a store wide sale. Everything in the store were 50% off so when I saw a guy at the Goodwill was just putting out those lamps on the shelve, I just grabbed them as fast as I could and then I checked the price. They were $7.98 each. WOW! 50% off from $7.98 is less than $4.00 right? You can't beat that!!!So I got them all!!!

I know exactly what I'm going to do with those lamps. Just wait and see! :D

Okay, so my son and I were on our way to the market last Sunday and I saw a huge garage sale. So I decided to stop by for a quick look. As soon as I was getting out of my car, something caught my eye. It was that buffet cabinet. I asked the lady who was having a garage sale the price of that buffet cabinet. She said it was $80.00. I thought $80.00 was not so bad, but I wasn't really looking for a buffet cabinet so I didn't want to spend $80.00. So I just walked away, then she said $70.00! I didn't respond, then she said $60.00! I still didn't respond to her. Finally, she said $50.00!! I said it's sold!!

Milk Glass - it does a body good. That's how it goes, right? *grin* Super win on both the milk glass lamps and buffet. I'm going to send you pictures of my friend's "not too shabby" guest room in the courier tomorrow. Enjoy! :)

Oh, my goodness!!! First of all, the milk glass. There are lamps for sale like that at my local consignment shop, but they want $30 for them. I actually picked up a couple of pieces there yesterday including a vase I've been looking for. You just reminded me that I forgot them in the car. And that cabinet ... what a deal!

great job suzie, love all the milk glass hob nail lamps, cant wait to see what youll do and great buy on the chest. you are so lucky.

Tracy said...

Great deals! Can't wait to see what you are going to do. Are you going to paint the cabinet or leave it as is?

Suzie said...

Thank you everyone for the comments!
I don't know Tracy, what do you think? The cabinet is in good condition, but I like shabby chic these days. This cabinet would have been perfect(as is) when i used to decorate my house country.
Please help me!

WOW you found some great bargains! Lucky you for getting both of them. I love the milk glass lamps myself but don't own one. I'd like to have one to go in my guest room. And the buffet is seeing your home I bet that your going to paint it white right?
