Spring Blossom Green Bowls
I'd like to share my present to myself on my birthday, which was August 7th. I had hoped to post some more birthday Pyrex, a surprise gift from the BF, but at least Goodwill presented me with these 3 bowls. 3 441 Spring Blossom Green Pyrex bowls for $3.03 each.
When I picked them up, I just had to wonder. What happened to the rest of the sets? Did they already put them out & someone purchased them & didn't like or need the #441s? Did they miss them on the shelf (because I almost did)? Did the original owner donate them some time before? Did all the other bowls break? Were they given away? Did they keep them?
Whenever I pick something up at the thrifts, I like to wonder: why did the original owner decide they no longer wanted this? How long did it go unused before they donated it? Why did they donate it? And sometimes, there is the question of, did the owner pass away? I'll never get the answers, but it's always fun to wonder. Does anybody else have any similar thoughts?
One more item I'd like to share that I bought quite some time ago is this occupational mug. If you are a reseller, occupational mugs (coffee mugs or shaving cups) are excellent items to resell. Like all good resellers, do your research (ie: search the completed eBay listings) to get an idea of what occupational mugs have a decent return. Of course we are talking vintage occupational mugs, some can even fetch into the $100's.
