What a bargain!

I was recently at the Value Village in Hamilton, Ontario. (Value Village is a store where people donate used goods and the store sells them and profits go to charity.) Outside they have a donation bin, and I spotted a large pedestal bowl outside beside the bin. The bowl was filled with old silverware. I asked a clerk inside the store if I could buy the bowl. She didn’t know and so asked the person who prices the glassware. He came around and studied the piece, so I was thinking he might price it high. He priced it at $1.99! Of course I bought it. Bowls similar to this are pictured in Krista Taylor’s book for $75 to $125. What a bargain!
