Home Decor Score At America's Mart

I was at the Atlanta Merchandise Mart a couple of weeks ago when I ran into a friend. She was working at one of the showrooms doing inventory in preparation for the Gift Show that started today. She told me to make sure I stopped by that showroom because they had a lot of items at 70% off of wholesale! Please, twist my arm!
I bought a lot of items from them, but my favorite was this pair of metal cloches. They were originally $25 wholesale for the set.
 Have you done the math?
70% off of wholesale means that I got them for $7.50 for the pair!!!

I decided to keep one and sell the other. Although I'll probably wish I had kept them both! Oh well, too late!

For the one that I kept, I added a nest that I found after some trees were cut down at Earth Mama's General Store. It was in great condition and was the perfect size to fit in the larger cloche.

I added 3 little faux eggs to the nest.

So for $3.25 I have a lovely new accessory!


Oh, and I sold the other one for $15! So, technically, I didn't even spend $3.25. That's my kind of shopping!!!
