It's Orange Ticket Day!!

After picking up a couple of things today at my favorite resale shop (I'll post about those later), I discovered another one that I didn't know about.  Lots of stuff, but not as much 'vintage' as the other (but if you're about a size 4, they have wonderful fashions at ridiculously low prices...if only!).

Anyway, I zipped in quickly as I was en route home, and found this cute little thing:

See the orange price tag?

 A bargain for $6.00!


At the checkout, imagine my excitement when I discovered that all orange ticket items were today half price!!!  So...Mr. Duck Tureen (at least a two quart duck), for $3.00, is now nesting with me!!!

Hope the day was as beautiful where you are as it was here!
