~GORGEOUS VINTAGE PRISM BOTTLES~
A couple of years ago I was in Southern California visiting family and while there I was able to meet up again with one of my sweetest longtime friends. We shopped about in downtown Orange (be still my heart!) and it was an experience I will never forget.
I don't get out to the West Coast all that often, but when I do I'm always amazed at the different things offered up for sale in the stores. From Antique Shoppes to Department Stores the merchandise is just plain 'different' than it is in Oklahoma. Don't get me wrong...we have great stuff here! But...it at least SEEMS to me that the cutting edge of design (fashion and interior) is someplace OTHER than the place I call home.
~ONE IS GOOD, TWO IS BETTER~
Anyway...while I was there I found the amazing bottles you see at the top. Made using vintage prisms, they just stole my heart away! Toooo pricey for me at the time I passed on purchasing even one! A couple of weeks later I was totally over-my-head crazy with excitement when for Christmas and my December birthday my friend gifted me with the complete set. I keep them in our main bath and love them more than ever.
Now...I KNOW the asking price for these little beauties. So...when I was out shopping this past week at the ROSS Store in good old Norman, Oklahoma (GO OU! Whoot! Whoot!), I nearly fainted when I saw two smaller versions of those expensive little Bottles sitting all alone on a half-empty shelf!
~ONE FOR ME, ONE FOR MY GIRL~
The price...$5.99 each. WHAT?
Now...ROSS isn't always great! But I've found that during the Holidays, and IF you are willing the brave their sometimes JUNKED UP STORE (especially during the Holiday Season), you can find some truly great things! I know I've blogged about this incredible store before...at times it is simply FABULOUS!
So~if you are on your last thin dime...OR (and I really like this kind of thinkin') if you are like me and always on the hunt for incredibly priced finds...check out ROSS!
