    Sooo happy! I just thought I would share my little bargain with you guys!
    Me and my SIL went to a prop hire warehouse yesterday for organising my FIL's 50th Birthday party, and as we walked in, a beautiful, silver plated, 8-armed, ornate Candelabra was standing there, and I loved it! It's a bit OTT for some of my friends, but it's totally up my street, as I love Baroque, French style furniture and accessories. Anyways, I asked how much it was to hire, and the lady was a bit blasé about it, saying that she hadn't thought about it yet, as she only has the one, and apparently a local 'smack head' came in asking for £50 for it, so she got it down to £30 and he accepted. We carried on with our enquiries about the party props, but just as I was leaving, I mentioned the Candelabra again, and could she let me know how much it would be, and she said that by the time it came round to my Wedding, she probably would have sold it on, as it was only the one and she didn't know what to do with it! So I said for her to take my number, and when she wanted to sell it, give me a call and I would happily buy it off her..she then said to me that if I gave her £30 cash then and there I could leave with it!! So I did!
    Sooo happy! Got my Sweetheart table centrepiece, AND a beautiful candelabra for our bedroom, until we have our dining room decorated, then it can be a beautiful centrepiece in our dining room table! Eeek!

    Has anybody else happened to get something amazing for their wedding/house just out of pure luck of being at the right place at the right time, and having the balls to keep pushing for something? Would be interested to hear your stories and see your pics!
    When I work our how to upload a photo, I will upload a picture of it!
