My friend Linda and I went to an auction the other night. I spent $2.00 on something I really liked for the house.

This is one of the pair of ten and one-half inch tall candleholders I invested in for the future. They are very heavy, hold three-inch pillar candles, marked Shannon Crystal - Designs of Ireland, 24% lead crystal. The original price tag was still on the bottom of each for $40.00. You could tell they were purchased several years ago, by the type and age of the tag.

I did some research and found an identical pair for sale on eBay for $35.00. Not a bad investment of my $2.00.
