I thought it was time to get something off my chest for good. During my past couple of years op shopping I have had a few regrets. Regrets over the things I've left behind. It's one of those things that remains hidden in the corner of my mind, & as much as I try to forget, I am reminded of the one that got away. Are there things that you really regret not buying?
I saw the cutest kitsch coffee pot set with a sugar bowl & milk jug by the English maker Sadler at one of my local op shops. For some strange reason I only bought the bowl & jug for $2, & I left the coffee pot behind. My reasoning was that I didn't need another teapot, & I was trying to resist buying more china because I am running out of display space. I got home & Googled the brand Sadler to try to find out more about the design, & as soon as I did I got back in the car & drove to the op shop hoping to find the coffee pot waiting for me, but alas within half an hour the pot had gone. BooHoo. It was priced at $8, & I have only seen one since at an antique shop for $70. It's one of those missed purchases I will never forget, & I will forever more have my eyes peeled for another one just like it.
