Like A Needle In A Haystack

On Friday, I found a McCoy pottery cookie jar shaped like a tea pot. I thought I saw somewhere that McCoy was a good seller, however, it was missing the lid.

I searched the boxes next to where I had found the jar. (It was sitting on the floor) No luck in finding the lid. The thrift store is huge and it was very unlikely that I would find it since I did not know which box the jar had come out of. I gave up, paid a dollar for the jar and went home.

I went back today and found a couple of things for resale.

salt and pepper shakers

Before I left I thought I would check out the lamps. You can never have too many, right? There was a box sitting on the floor and something caught my eye. I moved the other crap and there it was the lid to my cookie jar. I couldn't believe it.

I now have a complete cookie jar.

  1. Now that's luck!!!

    I hate when I search the shelves for quite some time for a missing lid/shaker/cup/whatever & come up empty handed.
