CHEAP (?) BROWN TRANSFERWARE

 When our usual Wednesday morning coffee group got together recently; my friend, Susan, brought me a gift -- this brown transferware relish dish.
 She said she found it "cheap, really cheap"!  
 She assumed it was inexpensive because of the brown discoloration on the back.  I told her that was the way we like it!
I'm glad I have friends out there looking for my interests, because I certainly haven't found any brown transferware "cheap, really cheap" for a long time.  
Thanks, Susan.

Dear Sally, what is happening to the beautiful state of Colorado..? Selling pot all over the place. They are in for a whole lot of trouble, I think. :0(
