The "Charms of Tea" book was $10 so we got it for $5.
the lion brass planter was marked down from $225 to $100 but I got it down further to $80. It's big and heavy and I like the lion head and feet. I plan to put ferns in it when they start selling them in stores.
This glass syrup server with a silver plated lion lid is my very favorite. It was marked $17 at the estate sale so we got it for half that.
We also bought this wooden bird house. It was marked down to $125 but she gave it to us for $100.
It is already displayed in my new kitchen cabinet with my other plates with chelsea birds also.
