I was hesitant to ask the price since it was not marked. When the clerk told me it was $15 I quelled my excitement and rushed back to the chandy and scooped it up. I knew I had something special!
Once I got it home I decided I needed to spraypaint it white, so after cleaning it and taking all the prisms off I hung it outside and sprayed it. I was so excited to spray it that I forgot to take a before picture! So sorry! After placing all the prisms back on the chandy it looks so amazing! What do you think! I begged my dear hubby to hang it in the livingroom for me. I just love it and can't believe how much I paid for it! I was in a local antique store the other day and saw a similiar chandy without the two upper tiers that I have on mine and it was almost $200!
I love having something old in my home and wondering about the stories it could tell of its previous owners.... How many dinners were eaten under its illumination, what kind of family chats took place under these gorgeous prisms, and did the owner enjoy its beauty as much as I do....
I absolutely love my new/old Chandelier and so happy that I waited patiently for years for the right chandy at the right price! Take heart all of my fellow bargain hunters and thrift store junkies, you just never know what treasure awaits you on your next search! That is definitely the thrill of the hunt!
