Several years ago, Dave & I were antiquing in Appleton, Wisconsin.
We have several favorite antique malls in that area, and are always thrilled to be there!
I was walking the mall in the opposite direction that I usually go, like to mix things up. I
rounded a corner, quickly scanning a booth I usually skip because there generally seems to be the same stuff in it every time I have been there. And this turkey caught my eye.
Could it be...a 1950's German Steiff mohair turkey with a $9.99 price tag?
I believe I leaped into the booth, grabbing (with care) this prize!
I wouldn't even risk leaving it at the front counter while I finished my shopping.
I am always on the look out for vintage Steiff.....and have never seen a turkey.
Easily the price should have been 10 times what I paid.
It is now one of my favorite antiquing stories & finds -- a keeper!
How about you, what is your best find?
