Vintage Yardsale Finds

I found this really sweet vintage chandelier last Saturday. The man I purchased it from said he had it displayed in his booth at an antique mall. One thing that really sold me on this was that he said it was already newly rewired.

He plugged it in for me and sure enough, it lights up beautifully. He said to hang on to the candle sleeves because they're original. I'm pretty positive that I'm going to at least cover them up with new sleeves. I added the hanging crystals to it which I already had.

I know it's not for everybody, but I just love the rusty patina on this, the patina even matches my ceiling. I love, love, love it. It was only 20 dollars.

If I tire of the rusty look, this will look great spray painted as well.


Another fun find, was this vintage etched chippy mirror for 2 dollars.


This would be so cute on a dresser or with a table scape.

I absolutely LOVE the chandelier! Great deal!
And the mirror is a steal at 2 bucks. I would have definitely bought that because I am still needing a mirror for my vanity in my bedroom.
Congrats!

Amazing!! I almost lucked out and got a great chandelier at an auction. A lady got it in a lot (she must be a hoarder as she bid on everything). By the time I got to her to ask if I could buy the chandelier from her she had ripped off all the crystals saying she was going to make them into Christmas decorations. The poor metal was all ripped up. It was such a shame. I would have loved it like you love yours!

Love the chandelier...what a deal! I'd leave it just is...it's got a beautiful patina. I'm so jealous.

$20 for that chandelier is a STEAL! Today I just finished a re-do of a new (UGLY) one that I found - I'll post pics soon. Yours is a great combo of chic & character!

OMG..that chandelier is positively fabulous and keep those old candle covers....no new ones! LOL...that's just my tiny opinion. Just popped by to let you know you won my Cottage-Give-Away and I can' wait to mail it to you. My email is over on the sidebar of my blog. I look forward to hearing from you with your mailing address. Hope you are having a fabulous Memorial Day weekend. xo Lynn
