This past weekend, Dave & I celebrated our 29th Anniversary
with a trip northward to our property in Winter.
On our way, we had to follow the signs -- "Thrift Sale" beckoned!
At one stop, there were boxes at the road edge, unpriced.
I picked the white rabbit above out of a box - held it up for a price -- "free".
I knew the rabbit was German made.
The sale was outside - and then continued into the house.
A grandmother's estate...lots of dishes, grandson still unpacking.
We looked around, asking permission to move from room to room.
And there, on the top of a VERY full waste basket was the brown rabbit above.
Definitely a German candy container
(head comes off, candy would have gone inside).
Was the brown rabbit for the taking too? "Sure, just trash."
So -- they arrived home, marking our anniversary -- a mere 29 years
compared to their age of likely 100+ years.
Yes -- these sweet rabbits were special -- and I happen to collect them.
I admit to paying well over "free" for the others in my collection.
And here they were, one in a free box, one in the trash.
Waiting, waiting - just for me.
"Value" --it is in the eye of the beholder.
Bunnies in a bowl -- priceless to me.
What is your favorite free find??
