And now, for my favorite! I have a small collection of transferware plates. Most of them bought on ebay. I have blue and white plates, a brown and white piece and a purple and white showcased in my blog's title picture! And now this piece! I just looked down next to my Wedgewood dish and there was a stack of plates and I saw this wonderful purple and white sticking out! It couldn't be! But it was! Oh JOY! It's mine! I grabbed it as quick as I could without arousing any suspicion! Didn't want anybody to know what a great find I had! They might try to get it from me! (Yes, paranoia had set in by this time!)
Guess how much! One Dollar! It's selling on ebay for $58.00 buy it now! According to the seller this is an unmarked Staffordshire plate from about 1835! Just imagine this piece being made in England and where it's been to end up in a presbyterian church yard sale 174 years later!!!
And my good buys didn't stop there! I got 2 other things that I'm going to post another time! Got to keep my peeps in suspense so you'll come back! I'll give you a hint: I spent a total of $24...you do the math!
