We were at Goodwill in another town on Saturday and they had absolutely nothing but they’re right next door to my favorite store The Classy Flea. So I thought I’d pop in while my husband and daughter were looking for books. I didn’t intend on buying anything – just went to look.
So I walk around and see lots of yummy things and am kicking myself for not taking my camera when what do I see –
Yes! A red transferware soup tureen!! I looked at the tag and it said As Is $14!!
Honestly, I looked at that tag a few times – it couldn’t be right? I didn’t have my reading glasses on me and the writing was really small (wish I had my camera so you could all see). So I’m thinking is it really $14? It looks like it says $14. So I go up to the register….I’m holding my breath…ready to say “I’ve changed my mind” because I think they’re going to tell me it was $74 or $114. I was sure I misread the tag. It was….
Yes, $14.84 with tax!! I told her they made my day. I’ve been wanting a transferware soup tureen but they’re out of my price range on ebay. This one even has a lid and undertray, no soup spoon though. Why was it so inexpensive?
Because it has this crack! Like I care!! So I had to re-arrange my china cabinet to make room for my new treasure.
I love you my pretty!
That is the only piece of antique transferware I have. All the rest have been found at thriftstores, TJ Maxx, ebay and my dear friend Linda sent me some.
I decided to hang my cups that I just found at Goodwill. Oh, I better wipe the .35 off the bottoms!
Soon it’ll be time to redo this cabinet and put away that middle shelf of dishes. Those are my fall/winter Johnson Brother Friendly Village and other brown transferware. I think a shelf of white would look pretty. Then it’ll be red, white and blue!
