Luckily, after throwing food across the cafe, I knew my day could only get better from there! I found $20 in the Lowe's parking lot on Friday (true story, I got lucky), so I was eager to spend it at my favorite store in Lynchburg, Estate Specialists.
The two dishes are actually really large serving platters, and I think they work good for hanging on walls or as centerpieces. For example, grouping several pillar candles in different heights on the dish, and then setting that on the dining room table. My favorite find of the day was the large gesso frame in the second picture. I know there is a chunk broken off at the top, but I fell in love with its charm! It's pretty big at 30", and I think I'm going to paint a smooth piece of plywood with chalkboard paint and put that in the frame. Then there was the antique crochet lace. Oooh, pretty, and I can't wait to use it on tote bags (which means I'll have to do a lot of sewing)! The last item is a pretty golden detailed wood frame. I adore vintage frames. I thought I had a print that would fit in the frame, but it's a bit too small, so that means I get to buy a new print!
So the reason I felt like I was stealing, as the post title states, is because I got all of those goods for a tiny $10.50, and that even includes tax! There are a couple more things I want, plus I'll need to buy something for my vintage exchange partner, so I'll go back soon...REALLY soon!
