When I placed an order for some French style candlesticks back in early January I didn't expect them to take long getting here since they were in stock. After realizing three weeks later that I had never received them I contacted the company I ordered them from.
I found out that because I live in Georgia and the on line site that I ordered these from was in Georgia, too that the vendor, Aidan Gray, was having issues selling these to someone in the same state. Something about resale and the site I ordered these from was trying to get this issue straightened out. Well, I don't like to wait and she said she would be back in touch. After waiting a week I asked them to cancel the order because I could order them from another site.
I was wanting these before I shared the dining room reveal with the new hutch. For some reason it took two weeks to get my order cancelled and to get my refund before I could order them from the other site. So this is six weeks or so later just to get my refund from the first order.
You see I have been wanting some old French candlesticks forever, but they are very expensive. This pair from 1st Dibbs for example are for sale for the hefty price of $1495. I don't know about you, but I don't pay that for candlesticks.
The candlesticks from Aidan Gray have the look I wanted at a much lower price, but they still aren't cheap by any means. I ordered these from Wayfair and it said they would ship in less than three to five days, but it was a bit longer than that. It thought I'm not going through this again so I tried to cancel them and they said I couldn't because it was a custom order. Say what? So the waiting game was on again.
I thought they'd never come, but they finally arrived last week and were worth the long wait.
These are my other new pillows that I mentioned in this post that were meant for the sunroom. Well, good thing they work well in the dining room for a spring look.
They work well with the buffalo checked curtains.
Just remember there are good reproductions out there for a lot less if you're on the hunt for something that may be a bit too expensive or absolutely too expensive.
Have an awesome week!
On a personal note:
My 84 year young mom is in the hospital as of Saturday afternoon with a hairline fractured pelvis. She is not in her normal hospital since she was in a different area when the accident happened. I'm hoping she won't need surgery, but at her age she may. She will not have it at the hospital she is in if she does need it. Praying we can get her moved to a better hospital soon.
Talked to my mom and no surgery needed!
