I picked up this gem earlier in the week! It's the first piece of Friendship that I've seen in person.
There's more to the story though...
...my 11yo daughter has caught my Pyrexia and asks me all the time, "did you find any Friendship???" So when I spotted this bowl (#443) I had to buy it, even though at $10 it was pushing the budget limit. Her favourite colour is orange. She was so excited! I told her that when she grows up and has a house of her own she can take every Friendship piece with her. Even though she swears she's going to live with me forever.
The whole set was there actually, but the other pattern and the 2 solids were in rough shape and not worth the $36 total. I only regret leaving them behind a tiny bit!
