Then I spotted it.
A mint condition Pyrex promotional balloon Cinderella bowl set.

It was perfect. Well, for me that is. I have been on the hunt for this puppy for years. The one time I ever stumbled up on it the bowl looked as if it survived a war with a dishwasher. You could barely make out the balloon print. Adding salt to the wound, the dealer wanted a fortune for it claiming its rarity as justification. I assumed he just smoked something he shouldn't have and walked away.
My heart skipped a beat when I saw this on Etsy. This beauty was imported from Canada. I paid a pretty price and waited a month for it to arrive in the mail before I was able to hold it in my own arms. It was love at first sight.
As for David's birthday gift, I cheated and had him select something for me to bid online. Luckily no one else really did so it was mine....well, his.
