My granddaughter, Tiffany, called last Friday to say now that she's married she'd like a vintage ceramic Christmas tree like mine. I had recently seen pictures of one at a local estate sale, so Saturday morning my hubby and I went to see if it was still there. Unfortunately, since it was the last day of the sale, someone else had already purchased it. I'll be keeping my eyes open, however, and hopefully my chances are good for finding one.
The estate sale wasn't a total loss. My eyes are always drawn to blue and white dishes, and I spotted a 7 pc. vintage Blue Willow condiment/cruet set. The living room shelves are filled, so it's got to be unique before I'll consider adding anything new. The condiment set fit that criteria, and everything was 50% off since it was the last day of the sale. It was originally marked $50, so $25 was a bargain!
It was in great condition, so my hubby bought it, and it now resides among the other Blue Willow pieces.
There are four listed on E-bay right now ranging from $50 to $160, so we're happy with our bargain.
