Those of you who know me in real life know that I am coo-coo for anything Princess House!
I fell in love with it several years ago. My sister in law invited me to her Princess house party where I saw the Fantasia design for the first time. I bought a few pieces. I hosted a party. I became a consultant. I figured I wanted more Princess house, I would let Princess house buy it for me. Because I loved it so much I figured everyone I know would too.
I am not a sales person. I love doing parties, but I loved giving my stuff away too. I never made any money since I was giving away as much as I was making. Anything else coming in from Princess House bought me more princess house.
Are you familiar with them? Everyone was buying it in the 70's and 80's. Fantasia is a made up flower which looks sort of like a poinsettia. The pieces are pressed glass, canisters, dinnerware, bakeware, service pieces, drinkware. I LOVE IT ALL!
Well, with the turn in the economy last year, no one was having parties, so I let my business slack.
But I still love princess house.
SO - When I see it, I buy it, whether I really need it or not.
The other weekend I was at a Flea Market in Stanwood.
I wandered around trying not to let my disgust show on my face.
I really am a terrible snob.
Then, from across the room, I saw something. I hurried over to the booth, and found 4 of these...
Yeah, Fantasia cannisters. They are an older design, probably about 25 years old. They have not been making the cannisters in the square shape for several decades.
Then, when I was scooping these up, I also saw this.
So, I think I will keep a few and send a few to some lucky blogger. I am trying to put my giveaway together in the midst of this hectic week. and I know two is an awkward number of canisters, so I will see how many you get.
The rest of the budget busters I found while junking at that time...
This mirror which you saw peeking out on the pedestal makeover post. It got the same treatment as the pedestal which I purchased on the same shopping trip but at different stores. Mirror, $25.00, Pedestal, $15.00
The mirror now....
Do you have any ideas for me? I would love to hear them. She wants to be in my living / kitchen / dining area.
