Yesterday I had to make a stop at Anthropologie for a client (I know, my life totally sucks!). She had picked out 2 really beautiful handles for an armoire I am finishing for her and during my stop I took a look through all their other gorgeous hardware. I often see one or two sale knobs, but it is so rare that I only use one or two that I usually just leave them, but yesterday they had quite an assortment, all at $2.95!!! I basically took everything I could envision using in the near future.




These green crystal knobs have been on my wishlist forever! So happy I was able to scoop up 9.

I think these mercury glass knobs are right at the top of my list of favorite hardware EVER. They are still full price, but they are perfect for the blue armoire I am finishing up so I splurged!

Holly,
I too have purchased so many knobs from Anthropologie...they have a wonderful selection of unique knobs/handles. I was planning to go there tomorrow (not for knobs), but now I'll have to add gathering sale knobs to my list...thanks for sharing! I'm so new to the blogging world, but hooked! I'm really enjoying your blog.

So jealous. I have been looking for new handles for a dresser and wanted to buy some from Anthropologie. Unfortunately none of there handles are the right size.

$2.95, I have to send my daughter back there again. I bought her 12 knobs at Christmas time and they were all over $10.00 each. We bought a large frame at Goodwill and we are putting 1/4" plywood in the frame painting it white and putting the knobs on the wood so she can hang her many many necklaces on their. We got the idea from Madewell, they had one in their store and the knobs were from Anthropologie

Those mercury glass ones are so beautiful! There's a couple of knobs marked down to $2.95 on their website but none as nice as the ones you scored.

Caroline said...

Oh my goodness! So fabulous. I am going to have to go their ASAP.

Amber said...

Soo pretty!

Gorgeous! I so wish that Anthropologie would come to Australia- or at least ship here. (although my husband and bank balance is probably relieved Anthro is out of my reach)

LUCKY!!! SO jealous!!

So Pretty, I especially loved all the glass knobs, too! Oh, and on second look the little 'turquoise' bits on the brassy ones make them even prettier!
I'm really intrigued to see what unique style creation you have in mind for some of the others I might not have immediately thought of for a beautiful furniture reinvention. I know I'll be shocked and amazed at what creative vision you'll come up with, that I wouldn't have imagined. :D

What beautiful knobs they are. I love the mercury glass ones.

Jennifer said...

Awesome finds, I love the sea glass color knobs!! And the pink tile. Can't wait to see them put to use.

just_me_tiff said...

what a great find! those are awesome.

Ashley said...

Knobs make me WEAK! We just got a new Anthro and just walking to the hardware display was surreal! haha. Do you have Hobby Lobby at all? Some of the simpler designs (I'm not sure if they are exact, but pretty darn similar) are at Hobby Lobby... but Anthro definitely have TONS more amazing ones... like the mercury glass, AHHH!!!!

oh my goodness - I love those knobs! I have never been to Anthropologie - I know some people are gasping at this - but I don't even know where one is - I live in the deep country in IL! I may have to head to St. Louis just to see if I can find some of these - absolutely fantastic finds!

keely @ luxe + lillies said...

I also am a huge fan of Anthro knobs! I just did a nightstand laquered black with the mercury glass knobs.. they will look so fantastic on your new piece!

Amanda said...

w*o*w! great deal! I love them ALL! Lucky duck!

pitcherandpearl.com said...

Beautiful finds & such a steal! I think the mercury glass splurge was well worth it. I really love the gold-grated-drawer pulls. I'll have to pop in to Anthro during my lunch break to check out their sale-selection!

The Brick Cottage said...

I LOVE the green crystal knobs. SIGH! I sure do miss having an Anthropologie near by.

Deb said...

I heart the green sea foam knows...just gorgeous!

Jill said...

The mercury glass ones are gorgeous! Makes me wish there were an Anthropologie near by!

Little Lovables said...

Holy cow, what an amazing deal!

Just gorgeous!!

Erin said...

what a fabulous find! i love all their knobs & their unique selection. sadly i could not afford the ones i wanted when i refinished my sons dresser, so i had to settle for cheap metal...sigh. in the future i'll have to keep an eye out for the sales.

Jo said...

They have been for sale forever on their website and now that I want some there are none left!!!!!!

Amanda said...

Holly! I too have been eyeballing those seafoam green knobs, as well as the faint pink ones! Oh how I wish I had time to hit Anthro this weekend. A funeral and my family leads me away from home to be by their sides. :( Maybe Anthro on Monday to perk myself back up. :) Thanks for sharing... can't wait to see the pieces you use them on. Those mercury glass knobs... on your blue armoire... dreamy.

I bought some of the glass knobs last year and withing a month they came apart. If I got them again I'd probably pull them apart and glue them together again myself. But I returned them and got the mercury knobs and they have been fabulous. Lisa~

TheSingleNester said...

I too love Anthropologie for drawer pulls too. I always want to scoop them all up!

I'm a knob junkie too... those are great prices! It's amazing how the perfect hardware can completely change a room or piece of furniture.
