The weather couldn’t have been better, nor could the location. We all enjoyed a band playing in the plaza next to the restaurant, drank some wine and ate tasty appetizers. The Red Caboose Restaturant was a great location for the launch.
I wanted to add something sweet to the savory appetizers offered for the party, so I bought some dark chocolate kisses. What to put them in? I needed a candy dish. In keeping with my philosophy of never buy new and with my protagonist’s love for secondhand merchandise, I found this lovely footed bowl.
The stamp on the bottom of the dish reads, “Made in the Czech Republic, Haas & Czixek, Handmade Fine Porecelain since 1792.” There isn’t a chip or marr on the bowl.
So here’s the deal. Add your comment to this blog and tell me how much you think I paid for the bowl. The person who comes closest to the actual price will win a trade paper copy of the first book in the Eve Appel series,
Only one entry per person and the contest ends at Midnight next Friday, August 1. I’ll announce the winner on this blog on Saturday, August 2 and tell you a little secret about the bowl.
Good luck with your guess.
