Maybe I Do Know What I Am Doing?

If you read my blog, you know I love vintage things. I buy what I like, and try not to spend too much.
I am hoping I am getting a good buy, but I also know I am never going to buy that million dollar item for $1.
 
Many of you purchase things from One Kings Lane. So far I have not, I just browse through and look at things............look what I saw today! Sold by Rela Gleason who "sells one of a kind items".
 
Does this vintage condiment that just sold for $135 look familiar?
 
Looks similar to mine!
 
I saw this about 5 years ago at a flea market, it is marked English and I pay $30 for mine. It was so unusual and I had never seen one like it before?
 
So this put a smile on my face to think....maybe I know a worth bargain when I see?
 
Have a great Sunday..I am headed out to the Garden!

Isn't that the best when your good taste and intelligence is confirmed, not that anyone doubted it for a second!
