Last week, I wrote about an antiquing expedition with my mom while in my home state of Connecticut.
As it turns out, I spent this past weekend doing more antique shopping and I hit the motherload.
What's more: I spent less than $50 on everything I'm sharing with you today!
My first find is one I've been hunting for a long time.
On my recent birthday wish list, a small kilim or persian rug was one of the first items listed.
Also for the bathroom: this antique Spode sugar bowl, which now houses cotton balls.
Looks a bit like a sea anemone and a bit like a cactus, and I love it.
Another bargain treasure:
This $1 faience-style dish is a piece from the Danish company Nymolle, which I've written about here before. It will hold our keys once I get my entry table/dresser situation figured out.
Perhaps the most amazing find of the weekend:
A paper sculpture from Jack Eisner in what could best be described as a junk shop.
I spent a whopping $5 on it and it is so mesmerizing in person, I can't even tell you.
With a little internet investigation, I found a website selling it for $750! Talk about finding buried treasure.

I'm wondering if I should plan another antiquing adventure for this coming weekend...
will lightening strike thrice?
Have you found any amazing finds lately?
