Budget shopping??

I did something that I said I wouldn’t do and that was spend money on decor.

We were out today and stopped at a Variety store just to look around. The Building was built in 1905 and it was used for many things through out the years. It was a Doctors Office, a Store Front , Apartments and now it’s back to being a Store Front.

The Print a reproduction and after doing some research on it , the value is anywhere from $60 to $400.The Ceramic pieces are from Dover Ohio and have the Artist Signature on them. The piece with the florals are from 1987 and the bottom one is from 1978,same Artist. I haven’t done research on those pieces yet. The oil lamp is from Hong Kong.I don’t have an amber colored oil lamp. I have two other Oil lamps. I spent $24.00, yes ,ouch but for me it was worth it knowing that the Print is worth some money. I’m thinking that I might want to stay out of certain types of stores.

The print is hung up in our living room, the oil lamp is on a shelf in the pantry area. I haven’t decided where to put the other two pieces as of yet.I might bring them in the office. I would have to take a few things of my bookcase to make room. If not the office maybe I display them in the living room. Do I regret buying those pieces, not at the moment. I don’t think I will regret it.

Thanks for stopping by.

til next time
