As promised here are my buys from my trip to Ohio last week.
This noodle rolling pin is in awesome shape. It too was $8.00.
Now for the bargain of the day!
I had walked to the flea market and found two cast iron #12 skillets. One was a Wagner for $70, and the other was this Piqua for $50. I couldn't get the blacksmith to answer his phone, and I didn't want to buy without his approval.
So I walked back to the conference and got him to walk back with me. We had never heard of Piqua brand, but it was in perfect shape, light weight and cheaper. The blacksmith asked the dealer if $50 was firm and he halfway nodded his head yes. Hubby then said to me, that it was up to me, do what ever I wanted. I kept looking the skillet over and finally I asked the dealer, "Would you take $45?" He thought a minute and slowly said, "it's yours".
We walked away with a smile on our face.
It's one big skillet!
Later in the day I called Sarah and asked her to look on EBay for the same style. She found one almost immediately (plus others). She said it was up to $120, had 17 bidders, and another day before the auction ended.
When we arrived home Sunday night, I immediately went to the computer. The skillet had just a few minutes before it ended. With 20 bidders, it sold for $173.45!!!!! Did I say it's identical to ours! H-A-P-P-Y D-A-N-C-E.
This morning we woke up to a chilly room. Tonight I have to decide which of my quilts I should put on our bed. Oh such a hard decision!
Life is good!
