Because the weather was so fantastic today–52 in mid-November for Minnesota is reason to celebrate–I decided to go to a nearby estate sale of collectors. Specifically, I went to buy a small Dala horse (they had a huge collection of Norwegian rosemaling) but it was already gone. However, I hit a stash of Quimper ware that I almost couldn’t believe–maybe 40 pieces! All signed and dirt cheap!! I have a couple of Quimper bowls, but I’ve not been able to afford any more pieces. So, I bought a couple of plates, candlesticks, and a great little sugar bowl and went home VERY happy. I think I may have to steal back on Sunday to see what’s left at half-price.
Next day–I kept thinking about these two Quimper dishes I saw yesterday so I scooted out and got them today at 20% off. So glad I snagged them…love!
