I have been wanting a large cloche for over a year now, not for any specific design plan, but just because I think they are pretty.  But if you have seen them in any high-end stores or boutiques, they range from $60-$100.  I don’t want one that much.  Some people have made small, cheap knock-offs using cheese domes from Goodwill, but if I couldn’t get a large cloche, I didn’t want a cloche at all.  Well, during my on-going search for an in-drawer knife tray, I ducked into the consignment shop next to one of my favorite Goodwills today.  I was walking around and came across this:

(I put my water bottle next to it to give a size reference.)

I was on it in a hot second, but convincing myself that it was probably still $30+, still more than I would want to pay.  To my surprise it was only $14.99!  It must have just been set out, because I couldn’t believe it wasn’t already snagged up for that price.  I quickly took it to the register before anyone could wrestle me to the floor for it.  (If you follow thrifty design blogs like I do, you know this is a huge score and good reason to be worried about being tackled.  Cloches are HUGE right now, so I can’t imagine why someone was consigning one like this.)  Since I never really expected to find one of this size in my price range, I haven’t put a lot of thought into how I would use it, but now I will just have to start brainstorming:)

      It is called Revive. It is on Hwy 92 right next to 575 (in the same shopping center with Goodwill) If timing ever works out we should make a thrifty date to go together! I’ve only been there a couple of times, they have a ton of selection, but I didn’t remember them having SUCH good prices. I guess I will be adding it to my weekly Goodwill rounds:)
