I've been searching for a wrought-iron looking piece of 'art' to finish up the wall decoration in our renovated bathroom and have been to several thrift stores to no avail. A local store (Giant Tiger) had this piece on their shelf a week or so ago at a price of $14.95, which was too expensive for a simple decorative element for a bathroom that is rarely used. I refused to even consider it.
However, as time went on and my search was coming up empty, I began to rethink this one. I doubted it would still be there because it was the only one they had and it was minus the box. Well, it was still there and still minus the box AND the glass candle holders that went along with it. On the off-chance that they might reduce the price I trundled it up to the check out and simply asked if there could be any kind of discount. The supervisor was called and she disappeared (I thought to ask someone higher in the pecking order), but back she came bearing the candle holders and gave me the whole thing for $2!!!!!!!! Yes, you read that right! I was blown away. Jack has nipped off the candle holder rings and I'm left with a perfect piece of 'art' for the wall...for the grand sum of two dollars!!
