My Kind of Bargain

2.02.2014

See this brass skeleton key? Well, I found this at the flea market last Saturday when I attended the Atlanta area bloggers quarterly meeting. The meeting was held at a local flea market and after the meeting was over we browsed the booths. 

I had gone all through the store and didn't really see anything that jumped out at me. Then in the last few minutes I decided to just casually browse some of the booths again that were close to the check out counter.

Then I saw it. This big beautiful brass skeleton key. Now, this did jump out at me and even jumped into my hand.


And this one is $89 on One Kings Lane. Both keys are large like the one I found and sold in their vintage market finds. It was so funny seeing these on their site a week after I found one.

I added my new find to this basket on the coffee table that holds some design books, vintage books,

and a couple of my magnifying glasses and this deer shed found on our property years ago.


The best thing about my big brass skeleton key is I didn't pay $99 or $89. 

  Nope, I paid no where near those prices.

          I didn't even pay $20 or $10.

                    Want to know what I paid? 

                      Even the cashier was 

                                       surprised how much it was. 

                        3 bucks!

                                               Yep, 3 smackaroos!

So sometimes it pays to go through the store once and then maybe make a pass back through again. You just never know what you might have overlooked.


If you are interested in paying $89 or $99 for one they are still available on One Kings Lane.

We're off to see my beautiful niece get married this afternoon.
Enjoy your day.

  6. Of course, YOU would find a great bargain.

    I liked the idea of an Atlanta bloggers group. I wonder if there is a group in the Los Angeles area?

    Enjoy the wedding.

  8. Very cool find Kim. Funny, but right now I'm really into brass. It looks so rich when it's aged.
    But 3 bucks? Come on, are you trying to torture us bargain hunters?
