I think I may have hit my biggest Goodwill jackpot yesterday. I haven’t been in a few weeks and thought I would pop in yesterday, and only buy something if I came across an incredible item. And I did indeed find an incredible deal! I have wanted a Le Creuset Dutch oven for a while now, but it just sits on my ‘Just for Fun’ wishlist, because really, who is going to get me a $300 pot?
I spotted what looked like an enameled cast iron dutch oven on an end cap, but thought, “I’m sure it is one of those thin metal pots painted to look like a Le Creuset.” I picked it up, and almost dropped it because it was so heavy. My next thought was, “Oh, I bet it is one of the lower end knock-offs of Le Creuset.” I turned it over and what is imprinted on the lid? Le Creuset! The price? $8.98! I held onto it for dear life and rushed to the register. I am now the proud owner of a $300 7.25Qt. dutch oven, and my wallet is only $9 lighter!
