My "Accidental" Ebay Buy

Okay, don't tell me you've never done it too. It wasn't so much an accident as it was not thinking through the whole currency differences. Yup, this little puppy came from the United Kingdom.

Yup, they use a different currency there.

Anyway, it wasn't a bad deal, just more than I normally "on a whim" place a bid.

I love to gaze at and think about how it must have sat on some stogy old aristocrats stoop in years gone by, or perhaps a harried milkman delivered it to a harried mother of three boys...in years gone by...


So anyway, I like my new/old milk basket. I plan on adding some old, miss-matched silverware to it instead of my everyday stuff.
Someday.

I love it! I'm a sucker for old, vintage, metal things. Good find, even if it was more expensive than you thought.

It is a beauty. What you did sounds like something I easily could have done.

Great buy! I would have "accidentally" bought it too! I bought one 2 weeks ago on etsy, it should be here any day now. Can't wait! Its not quite as cute and curvy as yours, but I think I'll still love it!

I love vintage and this is perfect vintage. I've made some accidental purchases on ebay myself, but THIS is no accident!

Jillian, I would love to accidentally buy that! I have been looking for one to hold my blue ball jars. Now you're going to have me looking on ebay!
