    Sometimes I regret what I buy. These Atlantis of Portugal candlesticks are one (or is that two?) of those choices. I blame Sean Bellin ; ))
    To top off my growing dislike of these, I chipped the dang base of one of these when getting them ready to photograph. (rats!)

    The center piece, I assume, used to have a clock in it. Not sure on this piece either.

    Well, we all know there are beer goggles...are there "thrift goggles" too?

      Peer pressure! I swear you said "I dare you to buy them"
    2. AmberRose AmberRose, 8 years ago
      I said "go or no go" and you said "go go go go!". How is it not your doing?

      Funny...
    4. AmberRose AmberRose, 8 years ago
      Big kiss!

      Very unusual candlesticks. The item in the center is unusual, too. Center one might make a good picture frame.

      As for regrets, we all have regrets. Just focus on the delighful enamel pieces you just snared! You're one of the very best, AmberRose, and you have a delightful spirit to go with your good taste and broad knowledge! Take a bow!!! : )
    6. AmberRose AmberRose, 8 years ago
      MiKKo, I was just writing you a letter! Oooohhh, a present is coming!
    7. miKKoChristmas11 miKKoChristmas11, 8 years ago
      Oh, another present? AmberRose, you are amazingly generous!!! Thank you, thank you!!! It won't do any good at all to say "Oh, you shouldn't have", so I won't. : ) Ah, I can hardly wait! I will keep my eyes peeled for enamels, and maybe I'll find one you like. : ) God bless you, kind friend!!! : D
    8. miKKoChristmas11 miKKoChristmas11, 8 years ago
      Really, AmberRose, you are too, too good! : o
    9. AmberRose AmberRose, 8 years ago
      MiKKo, for you, the world!

      Well you didn't spend too much, did you?
      We Live and ....
      We Forget our Goggles.
      I forgot mine totally on Monday at the Salvo's and spent $75 on some post cards.

      A donation to charity?
      Makes you feel good if not 'better'.

    11. AmberRose AmberRose, 8 years ago
      Well I kept under my thrift budget...still miffed that I let Sean sucker me that way! Totally teasing Sean. And yes I am giving you "angel eyes": ))
      I can donate them back unless someone loves them??
    12. vetraio50 vetraio50, 8 years ago
      Useful too!
    13. AmberRose AmberRose, 8 years ago
      I have plenty of drinking glasses that I am using to "dull the fugly thrift pain".
    14. Bazelmania Bazelmania, 8 years ago
      There should be a ''dislike it'' button on CW too to each item.
      This one would have my vote there. Don't want to be rude, but really Sean Loves EVERYTHING so his ''go go go go'' should make you run off into the sunset :-)
    15. Bazelmania Bazelmania, 8 years ago
      ....and thanks for the nice words....
    16. Bazelmania Bazelmania, 8 years ago
      Getting very close to that Sean :-)
    17. AmberRose AmberRose, 8 years ago
      Yes Sean is a thrift pusher. I can see him lurking in the dark thrifts trying to get people to buy cheap Chinese dollar store junk. Come on, you know the teddy bear with balloons is adorable. You gotta have it.
    18. AmberRose AmberRose, 8 years ago
      No, I actually have plans for that
    19. AmberRose AmberRose, 8 years ago
      Poor babe, I've been teasing you a little too hard. Sorry. You love life and that joy spreads to the whole world!
    20. AmberRose AmberRose, 8 years ago

      Crap but still hideous
    36. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      I have another one I've been schlepping around. They are pointy and tend to bite
    37. Aimathena Aimathena, 7 years ago
      Guess who the someone else is... I actually like it heehee
    38. Aimathena Aimathena, 7 years ago
      I like it for $5 but I don't like $180 worth ;)
    39. racer4four racer4four, 7 years ago
      I'm cackling here! Amber and Sean...are you sure you are not siblings???

      IMHO no Jere is worth even $5 - sorry to offend the followers.....as you say some love, some do not! I like 1960s/70s Japanese figurines! Go figure.
    40. Aimathena Aimathena, 7 years ago
      Rustic country is one of the many designs I like. I've always loved the old covered bridges and we are water people who practically live on the water in the warm months.
    41. SEAN68 SEAN68, 7 years ago
      LMAO!!!! Don't blame the messenger , Blame the buyer :) LOL :)
    42. SEAN68 SEAN68, 7 years ago

    43. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      You are a big stinker! You should never remind a lady if a thrift indiscretion.
    44. SEAN68 SEAN68, 7 years ago
