The $2,800 Light Fixture!

Now, I'm a serious bargain shopper.  I'm always looking for a great 'deal'.  But I might have outdone myself on this one!

I stop by our local ReStore (sponsored by Habitat for Humanity) on a pretty frequent basis.  I love to see if they have anything new, or to drop off some donations from our projects. And I love that all their revenue goes towards Habitat for Humanity projects.  

On one recent trip, I discovered they had a big selection of brand new light fixtures, all donated from  a local lighting store's floor samples.

It was like hitting the jackpot.  I bought 7 of them!  But the one I was most excited about was this beautiful Craftsman style fixture.  It's large, made of cherry wood and bronze, and is exquisite.  I knew it would be perfect in the breakfast room of our latest project!  

But I was curious what company made it and how much it cost originally.  I paid $250 and thought it was a good deal, but when you're a bargain hunter, you want to quantify how good the deal is!  So I started hunting on the internet and after lots of searching, I finally found it.  It's made by a company called Cherry Tree Design in Bozeman, Montana.  And while it seems to have been discontinued, it's MSRP is $2,844.00.  Gulp!  That's like my lighting budget for an entire house!  

So, it now has a special place of honor in the guest room, until we're ready for fixture installation.  I don't want to take a chance with it in the storage facility.  Now that I know how much it's worth, I'm taking extra good care of it.   I can't wait to see what it looks like installed!

Don't you love a great bargain??
