Linda and I were emailing one day about her upcoming move to Florida, and I told her how great the bargain shopping is here. Linda and I are both Craigslist junkies, and I have found some pretty incredible deals here in the Sunshine State. In my email, I mentioned one recent gut wrenching CL gold mine... a vintage pagoda mirror for sale in Fort Lauderdale listed for $80 I missed out on by mere moments. A few weeks later, Linda (who has been stalking Florida CL in hot anticipation of her move) emailed me a link to this beauty for just $250!
My new pagoda mirror!
My pagoda mirror was living several hours away in Punta Gorda, but my darling husband was able to pick it up for me while in the area on business. Mission accomplished!! I am thrilled!!! I will be hanging the mirror either in our dining room or in our entryway, I have not decided for certain. And I will most likely be painting it, as the gold paint has seen its better days.
If you are in the market for a vintage Pagoda mirror, here are a few available for sale...
Circa Who, $950
Palm Beach Regency, $1,295
Circa Who, $1,800
C. Bell, $950
(With a little TLC, this would be near identical to the 1stdibs bank breaker below !)
$3,425, 1stdibs (ouch!)
These pagoda mirrors sell like hot cakes... I have seen Circa Who, Palm Beach Regency, and C. Bell sell them within the hour they are listed, so if you are interested don't delay!! They can also provide shipping so you don't have to drive across state to unearth your treasure. :)
Thank you again, Linda!!!!!
