i can’t even look a cobalt blue vase without thinking about susan going into a little thrift-shop in hugo and discovering a piece of cobalt blue, with its little hand written tag “cole bought blue”. you just can’t make this stuff up. byod
Okay guys. I am here to verify that the “Cole Bought Blue” story is 100 percent truth. In fact, Richard and I were together and shared this experience. The Pepsi plant building located behind the Busy Bee was at one time turned into a thrift shop/antique shop. “Cole Bought Blue” was indeed hand written on the tag. If I remember correctly, Richard and I thought it was so odd we were afraid to buy it thinking that really it possibly came from Wal-Mart the day before and had been scratched up with a brillo pad.
This picture is a day brightener, and the story is a spirit lifter! Thanks, Susan, for verifying the story, as it does sound almost unbelievable! 🙂 I noticed on Craig’s List some time ago that several people mention rod-iron furniture and at least one has said rot-iron furniture.
