You walk into an antique mall a few days before Christmas. You muscle your way through the crowds, not really searching for anything in particular. And then, something catches your eye.
You slide past a group of women into a tiny booth, eyeing a 55 piece set of vintage, white and silver, atomic star, mid century china. Serving pieces included. You sigh deeply. It's exactly what you've always wanted.
And then you reach down to pick up the price tag. A scream escapes your mouth as your eyes refuse to believe what they see:
Entire Set of Retro China $30.
People begin to gather, wondering what all the fuss is about, as you do your best to stack every piece of china in your arms at once lest someone try to hoard in on your treasure. But they don't, mostly because I, um, I mean you, look incredibly nuts as you teeter totter to the front of the store, goods in hand and a crazy look in my, I mean your, eye.
