Every now and then I get a really good buy. I picked this teapot up at my local Goodwill Store.

This is a Lefton Musical Teapot that sells for $50.00. This piece was made in 1967-1992 , still has orginal label on the bottom. This must have been sitting in someones China Hutch for years.

I was able to buy it for $6.00. It is in perfect condition. I happen to be there when it was being put out. So what a blessing this was to me.

Wow, what a gorgeous teapot. I have a lot of regard for all of you out there who find bargains in such places. Me, never!! Lack of patience, I think.

Thank you so much for sharing Ruth's need with your prayer group. She's had so many back surgeries over the years and this newest one to help her pain is quite an intense process.
