Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoy reading about my busy life with my husband of 30 years and our four sons and daughter-in-law. We are now empty nesters and my blog is helping me through the journey. I love the Lord and I love my family. I also love to decorate and go to thrift stores!
So yesterday I showed you this neat rooster that I found at Goodwill. I think this is one of my most thrilling treasures that I have ever found at Goodwill. As soon as I saw him, I grabbed him and put him in my cart.
I was bummed to see the high price on the back...$24.99, which is a little steep for me, but I decided that he was too cool to leave behind. Somehow, I knew that he was special, but I did not know how special until I got home.
While at home I had time to really look at him closely and I saw this marking on the bottom. The maker is Fitz and Floyd, which I vaguely remembered from my old retail days as a very good company.
The details are impressive.
Look at those amazing tail feathers.
He's in wonderful condition.
He is very well made.
There is a lot of attention to detail.
I set him on top of the desk and I actually like him there. I think this will be his new home.
So, later in the evening I got on the internet and did an ebay search on Fitz and Floyd roosters. I was thrilled to find out that they are indeed very special and worth a lot! The one above is going for $169.00!
This one is going for $179.95!
And this one is going for $239.95! I could not find one identical to mine, but these are all very similar. They are the same size and they have neat bases where their feet are.
I am thrilled that he's worth a lot, but I am mostly thrilled with how he looks.
I have wanted a cool ceramic old world looking rooster like this for a long, long time and I finally got one! What a fun blessing! I think he was totally worth $24.99!!!
