On the way home we made one final stop at Goodwill. I walked around and didn't see a thing I wanted. I started to the front of the store and a lady had the aisle blocked with her cart. I cut through the small appliance section and that is when I found my treasure. Tucked between two toasters were these fabulous vintage alabaster grapes. You could have heard me squealing a mile away. I think I scared Lynn when I went running through the store almost screaming her name!
I have wanted some of these for the longest time but the price kept me from buying. I bid on a smaller cluster of grapes recently at an on-line auction but they ended up selling for $90.00 to a dealer.
These are the gigantic alabaster grapes with the smallest ones about the size of a golf ball and the larger ones are the size of a tennis ball. The funny thing is my dad has a set exactly like these and I am always admiring his when I visit. I even tried to talk him into selling them to me and he just kept changing the subject.
I love my new cluster of grapes ( even if my husband doesn't get the appeal ) and I love the $7.00 price tag.
Thank you Goodwill!
