There was just something special about it....something that led me to do research on it's background.
I discovered it probably came from an amusement park in West Virginia. And not only was it in West Virginia, but in the SAME TOWN where my favorite dinnerware collection was made!
So, I did the Pink Saturday post but didn't stop there. I really wanted someone who collected this type of thing to find it...hoping they would pick up the title of my post in a Google type of search. I just wanted it to make it's way to it's "rightful place" somewhere. Where that was, I didn't know.
Well, after only a month, it has found it's rightful home! I was so excited.
Not only was this person a collector, but get this. . . she was the grandaughter of the people who had OWNED THE PARK! Can you believe it?
She bought it and was just as thrilled as I.
And this, my friends, is why I love buying and selling antiques. Matching people up with the things they love, finding the right homes for things.
Like a matchmaker for stuff!
