Random Wednesday - Best Birthday Goodies EVER!

Hey lovelies! 

Hopefully you are ready to have a little look-see at my birthday goodies that I picked up on Saturday while shopping at a local antique mall. 

I tried to get all fancy like and make them into collages so it was less scattered since there are a bunch of photos!

The name of the AMAZING antique mall is - Southern Crossing Antique Mall - and it is the best place ever. Well in Jacksonville. My lovely friend Leda and I went there for the first time a month or so ago and I decided it was the "must visit" place for my birthday. Now the fiance hates shopping and hates shopping for antiques or thrifting more than anything. (Lord help me I wish I could change this but it's unlikely) But he took off the day from work for my birthday and was sweet enough to trek through the expansive square footage with me. 

It's a neat place because people rent spaces of the store which are called "booths" even though there isn't any actual booths or names of people who the area belongs to. Each item is simply labeled and marked with a price and a booth number. When you check out each item is accounted for and the booth owner gets credit for the sale. Crazy and so easy. It's nice because with different vendors the pricing is so all over the place so you can find outstanding deals!

We were there for almost 2 hours...

So without further ado... 

You guys...these are coasters!!! For $7.50 these had to come home with us. 

The fiance bought this for me : ) An army green vintage GE radio...and it works! 
$22.50


This is by far my favorite find...by far. I've been looking around online for a similar vanity mirror but this is the best of the best in my book. I saw this gorgeous aqua purse like object and when I picked it up...and opened the lock...I couldn't believe my eyes. You guys it even had the original warranty included. Mirror Go Lightly...and it works!! I've used it every day since and I love it!!
And the price...(I squealed when I found this)
$12.95
I've been looking for something to hold my ring. I bought a little ring holder from Fab and it was awful. My ring hung from the bottom of and hit the counter! When I saw this...it was love at first sight. I knew it would be perfect. Plus it makes me smile every time I life it's little lid to get my ring.
$2.95 (can you believe that price?)

Now these little babies I nabbed because they were so interesting. The scenes are on mirrors and they are so small. I can't wait to hang these. Each mirror has the Tavern Series info on the back with the info about the building etched on the mirror. 
$7.00 for all four

And last but not least. 

- This wilted daisy is so pretty. It has this odd iridescent look to it so it's sparkles but the colors are somewhat dull at the same time. Love.

- And the jars...I can't even wait to tell you the cost of them...
These are Avon Townhouse canisters circa 1989 and they were one of the many incentives for the Avon reps they aren't items that were sold. I am missing the Confections jar but I do have the other three! Team Room, Coffee House, and Bakery. They are so friggin' adorable.

Daisy - $2.00
Jars - $2.00 per canister. Two freaking dollars for each!!!

Long story short...I should take photos of the actual mall next time I go to share all the fabulous with you. 
And I cordially invite you to come and visit me in Jacksonville, FL so we can scour the tight and jam packed nooks and crannies of the best antique mall in Jacksonville. 

Talk to you soon!

  4. How lucky! These are amazing goodies. I really really really love those coasters! My granny sold Avon and I remember a lot of the different perfume bottles that came in super unique shapes and sizes. I don't remember these little jars, but they are too cute! :)

  6. Next time I randomly decide to travel to the opposite corner of the states, you are so getting a creepy lurker email from me asking to go thrifting with you. Those finds are super sweet, and it sounded like a ton of fun!

  9. Great finds! I've been looking for something to keep my rings near my bed when I sleep at night, Im always afraid I will forget I placed my ring near my bed and my son might think its a sparkly treat and eat it. Love the GE radio!!! My grandma had one just like that in her kitchen :-)

  11. Amazing finds, I'm really quite envious! And I'm happy you found so many lovely things for your birthday, especially that little heart-shaped box for your ring - so perfect! But my fave find is probably the coasters - I love things like that which are really quite bizarre but also useful and cute!
