Comparing prices -Early American

Early American 404. Brown with a gold pattern on it depicting a rooster, corn, coffee grinder thingie....

Salvation army thrift store: $15.00

St. Vincent DePaul thrift store: $8.99

Long Beach Antique Mall :$35.00 (with small bowl as a set)

All same condition, no chips, no cracks, shiny and pretty!
Even though the last one is a set, still high for EA, at least for what I would pay. Bowls generally  went for $20 or more that this mall.

Lesson: Shop around for common pieces.
