Speaking of thrifting, I found this chandelier at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in my town and couldn't leave without it. It's not vintage, but it has a nice cottage style and it's in perfect condition. I'm either going to put it over the soon-to-be-window-seat in the family room or use it in my bedroom over my bed. Decisions, decisions.

But that's not the best part. The best part is that I was in Home Depot (aka Home Deposit) the other day, and as I was cutting through the lighting section I glanced up and saw this. Yes, it's the same chandelier. The exact same. I couldn't quite see the tag so I went around to the other side, and...

Goodness gracious, my thrifted $25 chandelier costs $105.98 new. $105.98! Man, I love thrifting!

So, I have to ask. With all this thrifting talk going on, have any of you tried it that hadn't before?

P.S. If you haven't checked out your local ReStore, you should. I'm not the only one finding awesome chandeliers there. Don't believe me? Go see this post from Kim at Dear Daisy Cottage.
