Antique store goodies
Yesterday I went to one of the antique stores in Downtown Hillsboro--it's not a thriving place, but the antique stores there seem to do really well and have been around for at least the 20 years my family has lived there. Hillsboro used to be a small town but has turned into a suburb of Portland, but the downtown area is still cute and walkable, and it's nice to support local businesses.
I saw these milk glass sconces last time I was at the Hill Theater Antique Mall, but didn't think I needed them so I didn't buy them. I went back hoping that by some miracle, they'd be there, and yay! they were, and the booth they were in was 35% off everything!
I am pretty spoiled by shopping at the Goodwill and Goodwill Outlet, where I buy glassware for 0.29 cents a pound, but you never find a pair like these.
One sign of a not-yet-discovered antiquing mecca, I guess, is the reasonable prices. There were cute things in there for all kinds of steals! Some of it was cheaper than the Goodwill markups! These were like $15.95, then 35% off.
Have you had any recent success at antique stores?
