my ebay FINDS!
Most of you know about my love of the Mikasa Holiday Elegance (white and gold-trimmed) figurines, I have a fairly good-sized collection now of Christmas ones. And some look like Mikasa, but have no maker's mark on them, which is ok with me too. Well two different sets of turkey candleholders came up on eBay. The actual Mikasa set is on right now and I'm hoping to win them. The other set was unmarked, and she put it on for a Buy It Now of TWO dollars!! Whoa, I snatched those up fast. When the seller emailed me, she said she hoped I really would enjoy them as I got a super bargain....too late she realized she'd made a TYPO, instead of $2, they were supposed to be $20. I felt so bad for her, but at the same time I was thrilled I got them. (picture from auction just shows one, they are identical.)
Last year (I think, maybe longer) I saw a lovely Fitz and Floyd platter on a lady's blog. And fell in love with it.
I tried to find one online with no luck. This past week THREE were listed on eBay. Two were priced starting at $25 (plus shipping.) The other had a starting bid of $7. It was brand new, in the box!! Well NO one bid except me and I got it for that low, low, LOW price! I am extremely happy to have this beautiful piece.
Horse, and old barn, in transferware style....you know that called my name!
