Kosta who?  Boda what?  Yeah, me either.  Thank goodness for Google to answer all of our questions.  Kosta Boda is a Swedish glassmaking company and has been making decorative glass for over 260 years.  Why does this matter you ask?  Well, keep reading…

 

During my lunch today, I visited the Salvation Army.  I was digging in the shopping cart of items that had not been priced yet and came across two lovely cobalt blue swirled glass candle holder lovelies.  Yes, I am one of those people who has little to no shame when I thrift store shop. Don’t be afraid to dig away in those carts – it will be one less thing for the employees to have put on the shelves and it is one of those situations of go ahead and do it and ask for forgiveness later kinda scenarios, at least it is in my book.

These are Kosta Boda votive candle holders in the Atoll pattern.  They are BEAUTIFUL!  More information can be found here:  http://www.kostaboda.us/atoll/atolvotiveblue.htm 

 

Knowing I had found a treasure, I scooped them up and asked for the price. Drumroll please….$1 for BOTH!  So, yes, they definitely came home with me today.  Woo Hoo!  I found them online at Replacements.com and on Ebay in the range of $25.99 – 29.95 each.  TeeHeeHee.  You can buy them from Kosta Boda as well normally $50, but on special for $30. 

 

These pictures do not do these glass beauties justice.  I tried to capture the swirl look as well, but overcast skies do not make for great indoor pictures!
