OH MY! Is all I can say...I was walking Glacier and on a whim I took my wallet. Thankgoodness I did. I found a garage sale with ok stuff. Until I spotted what I wanted, but alas, it was in someone else's arms. But I kept a very close eye on it. I kept hearing her talking to her friend that 5 dollars was alot for this platter, but she held on to it. FINALLY, she put it down...I was 2 steps behind her and waited till she walked away and then SCOOPED it up! I could hear the heavens open up and the angels singing...! As the heaven's light shone down on me as I came up to pay, the woman then came up and had the gall to ask for it back! I politely told her she had placed it down and walked away...far away. Almost 2 tables ahead. I said no, and that I was buying it. She then went up to the lady whose garage sale it was and complained. The woman said..."easy come and easy go"! I fell out laughing so hard that I think I even snorted...LOL!
Isn't it beautiful?! It is hugh and I must have looked very strange carrying a large platter while walking my dog. But what a baragin at 5 dollars! Here is a close up of the trim with all those pumpkins and vines! And it was made in Italy! Just a gorgous piece to add to my kitchen or living room. Can you see it filled with lovely white candles on a table somewhere in my house! Or even used to hold turkey or ham in the fall! I LOVE IT. And yes my friends the heavens were smiling on me today!
