$1.00 Auction Purchase

by Sherry
Hi all!  I hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend.
I had to share my latest on-line auction find with you.  I bought this cute pottery picnic basket for a whopping $1.00!  Delores at Vignette Design  has a picture of this basket in her header and I have always
loved it.
I still have to buy plants for the container but I was so excited I couldn’t wait to show you.  In the meantime here is a picture and listing at FCL Style  for the same planter.  FCL Style is a sister company to Pierre Deux.
Antique Picnic Basket
A picnic basket-inspired planter, appropriate for herbs and other greenery. You may also aggregate several smaller potted plants for a more diverse collection.
Item #: F302800
Dimensions: 20.5″ x 13″ x 6″
Not available for rush shipping
$85.00
Did you see that price of $85.00?   WAHOO!!
Thanks for visiting and I always appreciate your sweet comments.
xoxo,
Sherry

I love this wicker suitcase, and what a deal for $1.00! It is amazing what a dollar will sometimes buy…I'm amazed at what a quarter sometimes buys from yard sales sometimes too for that matter 🙂
I am surely gonna be on the hunt for me one of those wicker suitcases…love love love it!

Sherry good for you improvising and saving yourself over eighty bucks on a 'like' item that you were able to replecate for a fraction of a retail cost! Creativity and improvisation are vital to Junquing Enthusiasts, high five!
