That happened to me yesterday. I'm still in a small depression about it! Maybe talking about it with you all will help, a therapy of sorts!
So when I was at Diversity Thrift the other day I spotted this very old and dirty chandelier. I thought it had a ton of potential and could really be cleaned up easily. Maybe a little turquoise spray paint to give it a little pizazz! Well it was missing a bunch of crystals and it was $30. My sister has been looking for one to put over her bed in her NYC apartment. For some STUPID reason I thought the missing crystals was a deal breaker. Here it is!
Wouldn't that top part spray painted turquoise look so neat...leave the rings holding the crystals gold. I love gold and turquoise together! Well I went back on Wednesday (They are closed Mon and Tues.) to take it home with me and wouldn't you know it was G-O-N-E. I searched every nook and cranny of that store to see if someone hid it somewhere, maybe to come back and get it later. No luck! So I shed a tear. Left the store. And told myself another one will come along eventually.
But for now will someone please pass the Prozac!
So what about you guys?
Any remorse about not buying something only to return to buy it and have it be gone?
Oh and one more thing! Don't forget to vote in Round 2 of American Crafter starting tonight at 6:00!
My project will be easy to spot...it will be the least creative/impressive of the bunch!
These other ladies are crazy talented!
