The more I collect Ironstone, the more I can spot it from far away. Right on the end cap I saw a serving bowl. Score! When I looked at the price it said 29.99. Instantly my high was gone... Until I looked a little closer. It wasn't 29.99 for just the one bowl. It was 29.99 for a 43 piece set. What? No way! I thought to myself. I looked a little more and BINGO! There it was.
The cashier picked one up and said "Wow! These are much heavier than they look." I remember thinking the same thing the first time I picked one up. She also noticed the crazing on them. I still don't know it they are a good thing or bad thing. I love it. Makes it look like it has some history.
So, I guess the moral of this story is to always listen to your gut. I knew that there was something waiting for me to rescue it. I just didn't think I would hit the jackpot!
