I was going to the Dollar Store in search of something for a craft project when I thought, I'll just run in to Good Will. My first isle, I looked up and THERE IT WAS! I haven't seriously even looked for the Friendship Large Red Bowl! I mentioned it yesterday in the post about the Pyrex at the Flea Market as a joke. I never thought I would find it!
Are you ever so shocked to see something that you stop in your tracks? I approached, I looked, I saw the price tag and then I fainted! I protected the bowl by falling on my head in a summersault position. Then I looked underneath that shelf just to see if the others might be there too. They were not there, probably because last April I had found the rest of them at a DIFFERENT thrift store!
I took Big Red home and washed it up, there are a few light black scratches (almost like pencil lines) that didn't go through the paint but it's almost perfect. I'm wondering if someone with a real case of Pyrexia will tell me what to try cleaning that with.
I told you I would show you my finds from the Gold Rush Flea Market in yesterday's episode: here's one. It's a $1.00 find, full skirted rosebud apron! The colors are bright and it's like new, only better, 'cause it's old! I don't suppose you know where I could get a big red bowl to do some mixing when I don it, do you? Oh! it's right here!
The price for this red Cinderella, and I'm still in shock: $ 4.99!
