[ fab find ]

POTTERY BARN in Dubai is run by a local company {unlike the corporate stores in North America}. And while they may not carry everything that Pottery Barn offers elsewhere, the one thing I love is that when they have a sale, it's a BLOWOUT sale!

I've recently had my eye on these...


...vintage oversized wine bottles from the early 1900s from Europe. Available in a few sizes, the medium size has been retailing for $149 {way out of my price range}. 

Imagine how excited I was to snag one this weekend at... hold onto your hats....$25!


And a rare turquoise glass one at that! With such delicious old grungy patina...


I think it's a pretty addition to my vintage bottle collection...


Have you snagged any fab finds lately?

When we redid our backyard, we found tons of little bottles as you've shown. Our house is from 1927 and from what I've heard, they used to throw their garbage in one spot in the yard because back then they didn't have garbage pick up. Hence, the bottles never biodegraded. I have a little collection now.

Your bottles are beautiful and almost free! I picked up a cute little vintage bench and xerox poster for almost nothing at a great new vintage shop (Spruce Collective). I love a good deal!

Nice! What a great deal! The bottle is really beautiful!!

Nice Deal! I would have snatched up a couple. I love those bottles too but can't talk myself into spending hundreds for one. We would be so lucky to find a deal like that here in the States.

Oh wow! I didn't know that those were REAL vintage glass bottles in Pottery Barn... I'll be keeping my eye out for their next sale!

That was a good deal! Even here at the flea market I pay more like 45$ for them. Love that color!
