Well, I am like that with things I DON'T purchase, or don't win in auctions. You know I am the Ebay queen, and often find delicious goodies on there that others don't recognize as valuable and wonderful, and sometimes I just don't have the money to buy it at that moment. Sometimes there are other sharks out there who recognize it's worth as well, and outbid me. I always regret it when I don't push my $ envelope a little bit to make the big score.
This happened recently when a young lady in upstate Louisiana had one of these Sciolari chandeliers.

I sure do wish I had won that chandelier. But anyhoo, I am also the queen of finding cheaper knockoffs. This Vertigo chandelier comes in three different sizes and two colors. However, nothing beats the original and I hate the way the spirals are connected.
I have a very exciting find in the works right now and hope to be able to share it at the end of the week. Stay tuned! And if you want me to find you a knockoff of anything - send me a comment or email. It is sort of my hobby!
