I'm complaining more often!

A few posts ago I was complaining of never finding Folk Art at garage sales or thrift stores. Well, look what I found at a flea market last weekend......The largest canister! Now my set is complete. I must give DH credit for this find. My Mom and I had been standing right in front of it admiring a pie plate that had a pumpkin cover on it. I never looked at anything else on that table. DH caught up with me at the next booth asking whether or not I'd seen the Folk Art (yes I have him trained well!) I couldn't believe that I missed it. What a buy at $7.00 and it's in mint condition. I'm kicking myself that I didn't buy the other one that was on the table - the next size down for $5.00 - one of you out there would have wanted it I'm sure.
Have you ever been in a Gordman's store? It's kind of like TJ Maxx but WAY better. I found this little jug there for $3.99! Couldn't believe all the primitive decorations they had. The only draw back is it was made in China.


Have a great weekend. ~Ann

  15. How fortunate you found the cannister! And the new jug looks like it's of similar color.
    Wish we had a Gordmans by us - lots of girls mention going there.

    I just sold a huge entire set of Pfaltzgraff 'Yorktown' dishes at our rummage sale last week. Someone was mighty happy getting them.
