At The Oakland Museum's
White Elephant Sale
My first stop was in the Housewares Dept.
where I immediately spied this lotus bowl to add to my growing collection.
I love its simplicity and the fact that it was made in Italy!
I've been wanting one of these spray misters ever since I learned from my friend Kathysue that you should mist your orchids for them to thrive.
Each year I always seem to find one special bottle...
This one still had its original cork!
Love the etching above the label.
The label is not too bad either.
Of course it is made in France.
Moving on to the Knick Knack Dept., I found this wonderful pair of heavy wooden legs or balustrades with the most wonderful painted blue patina.
They have been re-purposed into candle holders which are perfect for our coastal inspired man cave.
I couldn't pass up this petite laboratory glass vial with its weighted bottom and etched measurements at only .25 cents.
I have a thing for old glass!
In the Boutique Dept., I found these old brass knockers or door handles and couldn't pass them up for $9.
I'll figure something out... it is just a matter of time!
And then just as my friend and I were leaving, I spied this handbag up high up on a shelf in the Accessories Dept. which was the splurge of the day for me.
Like I said, I can always find myself a treasure at The Oakland Museum's White Elephant Sale!
I'm curious, who has been or is going?
