80% OFF at Hobby Lobby...WOWZAS

I did a little shopping yesterday. I went to my local little flea market and then to Hobby Lobby. As I was walking into HB I saw a beautiful over sized butler tray on a metal bamboo stand for $33! To big and tall for a nightstand, but just right for a makeshift bar! I didn't get it. We have a freakin bar that we have sat at 0.00 seconds this year. No need for another. I did however load up on on the gorgeous jars!! And some mercuryish type candle holders. HB had aisles & aisles of stuff (as hubby calls it) for 80% off!!! I couldn't believe it. It's usually like an end cap or two by the time I make it in. But not this time. Frames, pillows, lamps, chargers, jars, and everything else 80% off. Here's what I got.

I had to black out the messy background as to not obscure your view from these fab, I mean FAB jars. Opaque goldish brown w/ a mirror finish. These are 12" + taller! Not sure where they're going yet or if I'll keep all of them. But I do love them.

I had been wanting some mercury type candle holders for a few months in turquoise, but at $2-$3.50 a candle holder I'll settle for these beauties. I'm going to line them across my dining table once it is painted. Oh and the black mirrored painted box was only $4. They had some FAB pieces that went with it. Like tall black mirrored ginger jars for $8-$10 ea.

Here are some pics I took from my phone to send my mom just in case she wanted anything. I didn't take pics of everything, just some stuff I knew would tie into her house.

The gorgeous candle holders are at the least 18in. tall! They look like hollowed out hand blown glass. They are stunning & cheap.
Look at those tall lacquered ginger jars on the top shelf.

These candle holders were a good size. Like chunky! My mom would love these!

Check the 80% off sign, makes my head spin.

Okay before I spent just under $60 @ HB for all these goods, I hit the flea market. I bought these two ottomans for $10. One is going underneath the computer desk in my room after I make a cushion and maybe?? paint it and the other outside as an ottoman on my back porch after a pop of color is added to it. I also got some little dishes to add to my plate mural collection.

Oh gosh....after an hour and a half drive to Home Goods (yes 1.5 hr drive!) This is all I got :o( I saw lots of nice stuff but nothing that stood out for realz. So I picked up some vases that match other vases I got from our local TJMaxx and these pretty frames.

Here is a close up of the matting in these frames. I plan on changing the print out, for some I already have saved, and hanging the frames in my room. At $12 ea. I thought it was an okay deal. But don't you hate traveling to certain stores out of the way and don't end up with scheisse (special german word)?

Okay so stop reading right now..and hurry to your local HOBBY LOBBY!!

What? 80% off? That is crazy good! I wish I had a Hobby Lobby near me. I had never heard of the place before I began blogging. The closest one is 76 miles away! That is a bridge or two away. I will have to live vicariously through your purchases.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I am heading there as soon as I finish typing this. You know I am always in the market for great, frugal finds to fix up my home with.

Thanks a trillion times!
