A couple weeks ago, Lisa and I popped into a thrift store while out to supper one night. I always head right for the dishes. I picked up a couple blue and white dessert plates, as well as a teacup and saucer. Then at the back of one shelf I spotted a bowl. A blue and white bowl. I picked it up and looked at it, and it looked old to me. I asked Lisa what she thought, and she agreed it was probably old. It was pretty so I put it in my cart. After we got home, Lisa decided to go online and check out my new bowl. In a matter of minutes she was looking at a picture of my bowl, at an antique store. It was the same pattern, and the same size. It was selling for $350. This past week she saw a platter like it at a local antique store for $150.
The center pattern.
