Some would say.. “That’s the most UGLY thing I’ve ever seen!’
Some would say.. “That’s pretty cool!”
I just say “Thank God it sold!”
So this vase.. wine chiller.. ice bucket.. thing.. has been with me for a while. How long you ask? Well in my Blackthorne listing program this is item 242 and I am currently writing up 38,348. That’s a long time huh? If you know me well.. you’ll completely understand how old this is once you see the photo below.
See the 541? That is the original grease pencil from Strickers Auction way
back when. (When you buy something there, they mark it with your number)
Now.. if you know me.. or you’ve frequent Strickers.. you will know I’ve had a permanent
number (163) at that auction house since 1999. Everyone knows a number like 541 is
for a newbie.. (and Yes.. we cleaned that off before we shipped it)
Look at the smile on #1’s face. She’s SO Happy to see this gone.
When the eBay Sold notification came in, I cheered (as only a
eBay Queen would), and then said to #1.. “What’s the one thing you’d
like to see sold, that hasn’t sold?” Without hesitation she says; “That
green vase?!?!” I hope the new owner is just as happy to see it
arrive at their doorstep as we are to see it leave our shelf!
