Great Finds at Ronald McDonald Household Sale

People ask me why I fly from Dallas to Rochester, NY twice a year for the Ronald McDonald Household Sale, and I think this is a great example of what keeps me coming back.

You never know what you will find, or what you think you will need :) This year nothing caught my eye until I went into the boutique area and there was an entire collection of demitasse cups. Not something I'm usually in the market for, but I knew I would be doing a lot of food styling for Chef Joanne Bondy for her new Stocks & Bondy shop and these would be perfect for styling her broths.

I was able to buy 30 of these - each one more beautiful and interesting than the next, and then the trick would be to get them back to Dallas. After buying a ton of bubble wrap I pulled over into a parking lot and wrapped each one carefully, and then carried them with me on the plane in my camera and computer bags. All 30 made it back, and yesderday they made their debut!
