It was a sunny, summer day that we hopped the subway and traveled out to the gorgeous New York boardwalk to celebrate the annual Mermaid Parade, and of course, I found a bargain on this blue glass. I covered it up in paper, put it in a plastic bag and toted it around all day long along boardwalk and right on the beach. Why, I even held onto it for dear life as we rode the infamous Cyclone roller coaster -- twice!
I let this blue vase go at the Carroll Garden's stoop sale this past weekend, but as I sold it I told the buyer, a livery cab driver who had spied it from his car and asked where I found it. "I thought you were going to say you bought it in Italy or France, or something, but Coney Island?"
He still bought it for the asking price of $5, proudly took it back to his car and drove off!
