Who knew?

Remember last Saturday when I shared with you my auction finds, and
told you about the amazing deal I got on this perfectly-perfect Lalique
perfume bottle? I still cannot believe I was high-bidder at only $22!
Well... It turns out that this is no ordinary perfume bottle! 
 It's a number 516, circa 1927 Lalique... And, it happens to be worth quite a bit
more than my winning bid. So I decided to take a few glamour shots of my
latest find and offer it up for sale through my own auction with e-Bay
Turns out there was a lot of interest in my find...
One bidder asked whether it's purple or blue. So I posted a photo of the bottle
next to pink cupcake papers - to prove that it is cobalt blue, and not purple!
My little auction ended this afternoon, and I have to tell you... I'm pretty
darn pleased with the ROI for my little auction find! Take a guess at the
final bid... Then click here to see how close you got. How close were you?
Don't feel bad if you missed it by a mile... I couldn't believe it either!
