My second purchase put me back $5. Now there are tons of Little Red Riding Hood cookie jars available, some vintage, and some new, but from my quick research on the Internet, I believe that this one is one of the Hull-Ware originals, based on the markings on its base and the glazing inside the lid.
Regardless of their resale value, I hit the jackpot. The pitcher reminded me of my Grandma Churchill's milk barn in Southern Missouri. And Little Red Riding Hood made me think of the many times I tried as a kid to slip out a sweet from the cookie jar atop the refrigerator without my mother hearing its lid rattle.
Either way, I hope your enjoy the video of my journey and a transaction at two garage sales that took fewer than 15 minutes!
