Expensive Tastes...

While I was out the other day thrifting, I decided to stop by one of my favorite antique malls. Even though it is definitely on the pricey side, I love walking around and exploring the different booths, as this mall carries only antique and truly vintage items. Nope, no booths full of Smurfs or Beanie Babies here.

Anyway, when I came across this gorgeous setee, I just about died. It's blue, it's French-inspired, it's tufted, it's perfect...except for one thing.

It's $2500.

I can only hope it sits there for ages and gets marked down......or I win the lottery......

I plan on stalking this booth for some time to come......


  1. Oh wow its gorgeous, fingers crossed for that lottery win for you!

    Im now following your blog thanks to the swapbot blog swap!
