Thanks to blogland, I have many new obsessions. And one of these obsessions are wooden bowls.
You may have noticed my new wooden bowl on my Killer Coffee Table Post.
I picked it up at an estate sale last week for $42.
It was an awesome estate sale, and I was standing in line at the end of the driveway to get in the door when they opened.
I spotted this bowl literally when I first walked in the door. I’m so glad it was there, because I bet most people walked right by trying to rush inside to see what treasures were inside (and trust me there were plenty).
My daughter asked “You’re going to pay $42 for a bowl?” You bet I am, and that was before I turned it over to see the price the owner paid for it. Wow…$105 for a European Wood Bowl.
Over the winter, I picked up this wooden bowl from a fellow vendor at Liberty Belle.
It’s large and deep and I think I paid $37 for it.
Just like the first bowl, this one is unique.
This last bowl I picked up a couple of months ago at a garage sale for $10.
It sits a little wonky…I need to find some type of base to make it more stable. But this is the only one I actually serve food out of. Because it is so wide and shallow, it is the perfect vessel for serving fruit.
I have several more round wooden bowls that I use for food service as well, but they just aren’t as interesting as the ones I have scored this year.
