Craiglist, eBay and more

Hi Prim girls,
I want to share with you some items that I won or found recently in Craig list, eBay, Antique stores or in the TS.  Few weeks ago,  I won this rug on eBay and I love the color in this piece. It is beautiful piece and the artist made a great job on it.
 In Craiglist,  I found this awesome windsor rocking chair for $20. Great!!  The chair is beautiful and has a great patina on it.
Also, in my favorite TS I found this very old iron candle holder for $2.00.Not to bad.
On Saturday, we were in an antique store in Hanover, VA and found this set of windsor chairs ( I think this style is called Comb Back), if  I am wrong, please, let me know. They are listed for $50 ea but the owner gave us the set for $65.00. I think that we make a great deal.  What do you think? They are completely sturdy and in excellent condition. I love it!
They are similar to others that my friend gave me a few months ago. This antique set had more than 104 yrs.
I will make changes very soon in my dining room and these chairs are the perfect combination. 
Now moving to bargains, LOL. Well, speaking of great deals in the TS , I can't pass these items today. First, I found this....
Only spent $4.25  and the old Bibble was free. In the next TS, I found a wing back chair for $10.00 and two games boards  for $3.  A handmade basket for 5o cents,
 And last but not least, these are two gifts that my Best Friend  Anitza from Victorian Country  sent me with my family last week. A beautiful shower curtain from Park Designs (Sturdbridge in Black/Tan color) and a Stitchery.WOOHOO! Thank you, Thank you Anitza.
Bye, Bye and see you soon,
