My Thrifted Find!
I am always in awe of the great items that Manuela finds at her local thrift store. I was out with my oldest daughter yesterday and we decided we would pop in to our local Goodwill store. We looked around for quite awhile and headed back to where they have household goods. After looking at all of Rhoda's beautiful creamware this week, a cute little pitcher caught my eye. I made my way over to it and picked it up. It had a little nick on the rim, but perfect I thought to sit on a shelf and look beautiful. It had vines and grapes on it, it was not too small. I liked it right away. I turned it over to find a price - it was a great price. Then the marking on the bottom caught my eye.
I couldn't believe it! I wondered if it were truly Wedgwood. So I did a bit of research this afternoon. It really is Wedgwood. I found a site selling this exact piece for way more than I paid for it!
Now I must go find a place for it!
