Every summer around July, our city holds a side-walk sale in the center of town. All the shops in the area participate and fun is held by all. The consumer not only get to enjoy the foods offered, but, they also get to purchase various items at a great price. The vendors hold this sale each year mostly to get rid of old inventory to make room for newer stuff.
I attended this sale mainly to purchase a teapot for myself. I came upon this teapot and fell in love with it. I was surprised that it was available for sale. I had thought Thomas Kincade items were mail-order only, through the Lennox Collections, and cost far more than I paid for it. Whom am I to question why it was for sale at a side-walk sale? Hmm! Anyway, I snatched up this wonderful teapot for the lowly sum of $10.00, tax included.
When I returned home, I couldn't wait to brew tea in my new teapot. After giving this a second thought, I came to realize that this item is not for brewing tea, but, it is meant to be looked at and treasured and for others to enjoy its' uniqueness as well. It now sits in my kitchen window as something to look and as a conversation piece. I get to tell my story about how this pot found its' way into my home.
