Monday was a busy day of running errands.
Right next to the produce market I go to is a big, new Goodwill.
So, of course I popped in there for a quick look around.
For the first time ever at a thrift store, I found a real ironstone tureen.
Finding inexpensive ceramic tureens is common,
but the difference between that and real ironstone is significant.
The minute I picked up the tureen it was very heavy so I knew it was ironstone,
then I turned it over and saw the marking.
It's also in perfect condition with no chips or cracks.
Can you believe that I walked out and left it?
I wanted to "think about it", but decided to go back and buy it.
It was $12.99 and my research online has identical ones selling for $80 to almost $200!
My husband said I should sell it, but I'll enjoy it for a while first.
I am learning to do that, to enjoy my finds for a while,
but to sell them or give them away if/when I tire of them.
In the meanwhile, I'm enjoying this find quite a bit.
