The first thing I saw was a dark green Harlequin creamer -- for less than $2! I was so excited and snapped it up (doing a mental happy dance the whole time). Then I saw a small maroon pitcher that looked old -- it was incised (not ink-stamped) Fiesta on the bottom. I still have to figure out if this is old or contemporary (I think it might be Cinnabar). I think it's the cream pitcher that goes with a sugar bowl on a special serving plate. But I digress...
|Do any of you know if this is Cinnabar? Or if it's old?|
I spent the next 1/2 hour looking in everyone's carts and what they were carrying. No creamer anywhere. Finally, I admited defeat and got back in line. There, on the jewelry counter right next to the front of the line was my pitcher! The cart-thief had apparently dumped it when I raised the hew-and-cry. Crime foiled again!
I'm still wound up about this -- and also about finding a Harlequin creamer. Harlequin is my favorite Fiesta pattern and I don't have a creamer AND I never find deals like this.
Doing the happy dance once again!
|That which was stolen has been found!|
Have you ever had a cart-thief adventure? Did it end happily or sadly?
