Last weekend, Bestie S took me to the beautiful campus
of the Music Academy of the West.
It is a world-renowned music school
by the ocean in Montecito, California.
Hundreds & hundreds of items
were for sale at the annual fundraising flea market:
It was easy to find wonderful goodies for great prices.
My favorite item was this antique secretary from the 1800's.
The condition was incredible.
The detail was remarkable.
The price was great
(it was probably worth 6 to 7 times its price).
Unfortunately, I didn't have any place for it at home.
I was able to purchase quite a few other things, however.
My big "splurge" was a set of antique
These lovely orbs are really heavy,
probably because they have sterling silver tops.
The set has both sage green and light gold ornaments.
They look great placed together in a large crystal bowl.
I cannot wait to display them this holiday season.
BTW, my "splurge" was only $45.
Bestie S and I spent several hours
searching through the various tents and rooms.
I came home with chairs, linens, dishware, & more.
I'll show you the rest of goodies tomorrow.
