The weather today here in Southern California was amazing and staying couped up inside would have been just plain wrong. I decided to drive to a local upscale outdoor mall and do some window shopping.
I strolled into a store that carries new bohemian-type clothing and home decor and found an adorable owl cookie jar. I flipped it over to check the price and my jaw almost dropped to the ground! I said to myself that I could find the same kind of jar only with more character and vintage for a quarter of the price. At that point I put the jar down and practically ran to my car in disgust.
Vintage Pottery: Water Pitcher from Antiques on Kettner
Finding items like cookie jars, bowls, pitchers, and other kitchen accessories in an antique or vintage store is the best way to go. You pay a fraction of the price and have a one of a kind item that will add character to your kitchen and home.
I found a Kitten Cookie Jar at the Great Exchange Consignment in Laguna Beach and featured it in one of my previous posts. Vintage finds like this is the reason why I had to put that overpriced, mediocre, ceramic owl cookie jar down.
After my visit to the mall I decided to visit a couple stores in San Diego from our map and found these fun pots pictured above. If you don't live in the area don't stress because these item are all available through their online stores.
