Now, I'm usually a pretty calm shopper. I try to have a good poker face so I don't give away when I'm thrilled with a find or bargain. (And I promise I don't usually demand people buy me things on the spot : ) But I totally lost it when I spotted this antique Dundee marmalade jar.
I'd been looking for one forever, but things from England are usually kind of hard to find on the plains of Kansas. I've seen them on eBay and etsy, but I just couldn't bare shelling out $20 or $30 for a little jar.
Luckily for me, my sweet MIL whipped out her $10 bill immediately. We dubbed that interaction "the antique emergency" and our favorite moment of the day. We laughed all the way home about my rather intense and sudden reaction. Needless to say, the jar is my favorite find from the market : )
And Dalanna, I owe you 10 bucks!
