I was in our large antique mall the other day shopping for dh's birthday gift. Innocent enough, right? I had no ulterior motive for myself in mind (honest).
Thought I would peek into their back storeroom which is massive....and dark....and empty of people...except for moi.
I was looking...looking...then I spied this set of brown transferware on a table with a corresponding sign that said, "Not priced yet".
Curses, I wanted it to have a huge, completely out of my price range price on it...but alas, it didn't.
So the obsessing started....I quietly asked about it (it just came in, isn't it pretty?)
Ummm, yes, yes it is.
Being the detective I am, I wrote down all pertinent info and went home to do some sleuthing....and came up with nada. I couldn't believe it...nothing!
So next time I went in, I asked about it again....she gave me a price that I couldn't believe so I paid and got the heck out of there before she came to her senses!!!!
The maker is Ridgway and the pattern is Prairie Flowers....did you see the country fence? and the daisy's?
Happy, happy girl........
