When I was shopping to get ready for the Lucketts Antique Market in May, I came across this jewelry scale. Now, if you’ve read my blog for even a little while, you may have picked up on my love of a few things…fans, typewriters, ironstone and scales. I had never seen a jewelry scale, so I bought it.
I was in a major buy-to-sell mode, so I put a tag on it (with a pretty outrageous price) and brought it with me to Lucketts. Before the fair began, another vendor was over checking out MY scale. Oh don’t you DARE buy MY scale. I know it has a tag on it and I put it out there for sale, but I didn’t mean for anyone to BUY it! Ha…well, she walked away to think about it and things started to get a little crazy with customers. About midday, the scale was still there and I kept eyeing it. I finally stopped resisting and went and plucked it out of my booth and put it in a box behind the checkout.
I may sell it down the road, but I’m going to enjoy it at least for a while. Clearly after the possessive behavior and thoughts of wrestling it out of the hands of a customer flowed through my brain at Lucketts, I wasn’t ready to let it go yet.
(Well, it turns out my “jewelry scale” is an apothecary scale! Pretty cool.)
Sorry I forgot to announce the winner of the Sutton Place Giveaway. It’s…
