Smile, Things Couldn't Possibly Get Worse!

This has to be one of my favourite finds of last year. A pleasant present from Aggie, priced $5.99 at Value Village, this Made In Japan plate had been in the store for over 20 days. It's price had most likely put a lot of shoppers off, but you'd think the uniqueness of the plate would have made at least one shopper pick it up at that price. Not haggling, but Aggie simply asked why the plate was priced so high & the worked marked it down to $3.99 - totally purchasable. Also one of my favourite gifts of the year. Thanks! We had picked this up in the east end back in November. The character, the writing, the saying - it all reminds me of something Paula Co. would have put out, but they mark all their stuff Paula Co. Nothing but JAPAN on the back.
