We were opening up the boxes and it was like a blast from the past. Maybe green wasn't the best color choice for my kitchen walls.
|My "new" mixing bowls|
|You KNOW you want to come over and have some gravy out of this guy.|
So, my plan was to take the pieces that I'll use and donate the rest to Goodwill (I mean, let's face it, I won't ever be using a butter dish, and I already have nice salt and pepper shakers. Yes, this set came with matching salt and pepper shakers. Two sets, to be exact).
Later that night I was perusing Etsy, as I sometimes do, and made some shocking discoveries.
Check out how much my "vintage" mixing bowls are going for! Also, eight sets of cups and saucers for $80. Do you KNOW how many sets of these my grandma handed down to me?! When I got up the next morning, I decided to pack up the pieces that I am not adding to my kitchen and save them instead of donating them to Goodwill.
So, seriously, I think I've found the secret to making a ridiculous amount of money on otherwise unassuming-looking everyday items. Add the word "vintage" or "rustic" to the beginning of the listing and *BAM* it costs ten times what it's actually worth.
|I wonder if "antique", "powerful", or |
"magic" is what makes this one worth
|Apparently "rustic modern" makes it|
cost about five hundred times what
So what do you think? Are Noodle Huggers "rustic"? or maybe "magical"? Apparently "made in the USA" just isn't enough of an incentive.
