Happy Tuesday Friends!
Ya’ll know I love a good auction! This past summer my family headed to an auction less than 10 minutes from my house and I found some gorgeous vintage outdoor light fixtures. And even better? They are copper! Copper is having a moment in the design industry. I’m seeing it everywhere. I have some small touches of copper in my kitchen and it warms the space up so much. So when I saw these fixtures (thanks to my husband’s good eye) I knew I had to have them.
But the trick with auctions is….it’s an auction. Is it just me or are auctions extremely nerve wracking? To bid or not to bid? Is that person just being a turd and jacking up the price (let’s be honest, those people exist) or are they legitimately going to keep going until they get this baby? And sometimes the auctioneers are less than cooperative, mmmkay? But that is kind of what makes auctions fun, isn’t it?! The thrill of the hunt!
Vintage Copper Lighting
As you can see, I won the bid! I was so excited to get all 5 fixtures for one price. It remains yet to be seen where the other four will go, but my hubby got a little more wiring practice and got this one up for me! (If you missed it, Aaron is my professional handyman and wired a few more fixtures for me that you can see in my modern farmhouse chandelier post. He’s a keeper. 😉 )
I just love how it changed the space from the previous run of the mill lighting we had. After we brought them home I wanted to do a little research on them and couldn’t find any duplicates. I wish I knew how old they are! But what matters is I love them. And while I was researching I came across these beauties. So I thought I’d link them up for you since it isn’t every day that we all stumble upon vintage copper light fixtures at auctions. 😉
