the type that has those one of a kind treasures that are so fun to find.
You stumble upon an amazing piece,
just what you've been searching for,
and it's calling YOUR name.
So you move in a little closer,
remembering other pieces you've found that were similar
but too damaged
the price too high
but this one is looking good so far.
As you peer in even closer your heart begins to race a little
you begin thinking that this one may be the perfect piece.
You reach out,
picking it up to look it over real good.
I mean real, real good; the top, sides, bottom, every which way you can!
You are so excited,
it's practically perfect,
the price is amazing!
that old saying begins going round and round in your head,
"You better get it while you can, better get it while you can!"
You know right then with the condition so good and the amazing price,
that you should grab it up,
head straight way to the register,
and take that treasure home with you!
you start to doubt,
begin to hem and haw,
ask yourself over and over, "should I, or shouldn't I?"
you put it down,
you look back,
several times you look back,
but keep walking away,
you can't shake the decision as you drive home,
once home you can't get it out of your head,
you've been looking for pieces like this for your collection,
and this piece isn't damaged like the others,
and the price is right!
you head back to the shop,
rush up to the front door like your pants are on fire,
locate the isle,
find the booth,
look on the shelf
Have you ever been there?
And I vowed that from that point on I would trust my gut and never let that happen again! BUT...
found this ironstone beauty,
no chips or cracks,
the price was AMAZING,
and I walked away.
