I returned to that sale on the last hour of its last day to check on an engraving I'd admired (sold...drat!). I was surprised to see that despite the fact that the house was picked clean, I don't think another soul bought any of that crystal besides me. I was incredulous.
And then, last week, I found these cut crystal glasses at a local thrift shop. I paid just over $5.00. What?
Why? Why is no one buying crystal? It's so useful! It's a good thing to have serving pieces for parties, vases for flowers, candlesticks for beautiful dinners. It's pretty for holidays and teas and showers.
Ladies, keep your eyes open for great buys in crystal, because I am apparently the last person on earth buying it. And if you get there before me, the bargain is yours!
