Mercury Glass Candleholders from TJ Maxx

Okay...after all the talk yesterday about the mercury glass candle holders I would LOVE to have for my mantle, I decided to make a trip to TJ Maxx JUST TO SEE if they were on sale.
Well, they were.
There were two there, and they had been marked down to $5.00 each because they were both broken around the top. I debated on whether or not I should get them, because after all they were damaged, and I really need four of them, not two.
After about 15 minutes of debating, I decided to get them. If anyone out there in Blogland would like to help keep an eye out for two more the next time they are in TJ Maxx- I would be thrilled to paypal you for them (plus shipping of course). :-)

Here they are, in all there chipped glory:





I'm thinking I can glue some greenery around the bottom of a candle to cover up the chipped parts of them.

The shorter one has the image of a snowman on it, and the taller one has the image of Santa or a nutcracker on it.

Let me know if you see these little guys and can help me out with my dilemna!
:-)

Hey Layla...check out your local Michaels (if you have one) they had them for 50% off too!

Hi, Layla – I found Mercury glass candlesticks for as little as $7.20 each (if you buy 2 or more) at the link below. Checked shipping rates - $5 for two candlesticks to my zip code. Sounds like a good deal.

I purchased these same candle sticks (unbroken) from Kohls B&M last year. I think they have them this year as well.

Layla, I think they are beautiful! And from here, they look perfect! I am sure no one will even notice the flaws. :)

xo, Terri

Yes, I too saw some at Michaels but I will keep an eye out in Homegoods for you. In the meantime, tell everyone the shipped portion is the family pattern! :) Be well, The Hostess

I think they look great, chips and all! Sometimes I like things to be flawed, it gives something instant age and character. Glad you found them!

Sarah @ ThriftyDecorChick said...

You could sooo hide that with greenery, berries, anything! No one would ever notice! Great find!

I just bought two mercury glass candleholders at Kohls. They were either just like yours or very similar. They were regular $19.99 - 70% off, making them $6.00. Then I had a 15% off coupon, making them a little over $5.00. I am going back on Friday if you would like me to pick you up some. Let me know. I love your blog :-)

These are darling candle holders. I absolutely love your burlap window treatments. I have been wanting to do some in my new home but I'm wondering where do you find burlap & long enough to make window treatments? Please help. I'm in love with these & the best part is how economical they are.

I wouldn't worry they look great....I will keep my eyes out for you though!

Layla,

This is my first visit to your blog. I enjoy your posts and will be back!

Jules said...

Tuesday Morning carries these too. Good luck!

Layla said...

Well, I've been to Big Lots, Tuesday Morning and Kohls....no luck finding two more of my candleholders... :-(

Karen- are you sure the ones you saw are exactly like mine?

Thanks!
Layla

They currently have some for larger candles at Pottery Barn on clearance for $7.99. They are really nice, but I think I got something exactly like them for my husband's boss last year, so we skipped on them and I could really go overboard on buying candle holders if I am not careful! But if you would like me to pick them up in the next day or two let me know what size and I can get them and ship them to you! Or call your local PB. I have had them tell me they are out of things around the holidays and go back a few days later and they have them again!

Not sure if you are still wanting or looking for these, but I found my set (of 3!) at Kirkland's for just $14.95... love them!

Morna said...

Well, I feel like a worry-wart, over protective mother type BUT - please be careful about putting greenery so close to a candle flame. :)

They look awesome. Keep that receipt in case you find unbroken ones. You'll probably have 90 people contact you with them.
