Now THAT'S Old School!
(Jean K and Janice T)
One of our customers, Janice T. (on the right) was in our shop during one of our sales a few months back and spotted an ashtray that looked very familiar! She made it a few years back. (OK it was more than a few years back!) She was a sophomore in high school, in Cincinnati, Ohio and was enrolled in a ceramic class. She turned it over and showed us that her initials were still written on the under side of it.
What are the odds that a high school art project and its creator end up in the same place at the same time once again on the opposite side of the United States? Jean K., one of our lovely consignors, found this treasure and thought "It'll be one of those items that someone will just have to have." Janice passed on purchasing it, letting another shopper scoop up the treasure and let the enjoyment continue.
We can't promise you'll find your "past" at our shop, but we think the odds of you finding something you'll love at our sales (next sale: June 24, 25, 26 & 27th) are pretty good!
