A couple of weeks ago, I found the 6" crystal bowl, below, at our church rummage sale.
I was on the committee hosting the sale, and spotted the little sparkling beauty as we were pricing items the night before the sale. I quickly stashed the bowl in "my 'to buy' pile." We priced items for the sale fairly cheaply, and I almost paid a dollar for the bowl. But once home, and upon inspection, I found that it was marked Waterford Crystal--in like new condition! I was ecstatic!!! And to ease my conscience, I ended paying $5.00 for it instead. They were happy---I was happy! :)
The white milkglass set, was a birthday gift from my mother-in-law, found at a really neat flea/antique "Mall," housed in an old tobacco warehouse in Mullins, SC. Can't remember the name, but it is on main street downtown, and worth the stop to visit!
And lastly, a Goodwill Makeover Story...
