Loving this! The center is wired already too so it’s usable!

I paid more for this than I usually would. $30.00 but I think you can see why I HAD to have it.

For comparison. This one at the Country Store of Geneva is $220.00

For that price on the pierced tin chandelier I would kick myself if I didn't buy it. The pumpkins are great too, it doesn't matter what time of year.

Wonderful finds Carmen. And more pumpkins, how cool is that? Love the light, that was a great deal! Someone (I can't remember who, at the moment) left a comment on my Blog that their Goodwill is not having the colored 50% off stickers any more. No more discounts. Did you hear anything about this at your Goodwill? I haven't been to any in a week and a half, having withdrawls, Lol!
Enjoy your day, carmen!

tamera-country at heart said...

Wow, more great finds. I love the checker board and the prim angel. And the light was a steal at that price.
I don't think I could have passed that up either even if I didn't know what to do with it.
Can't wait to see what you do with all the goodies.
Happy decorating
