This morning I heard the familiar ping of a Gumtree enquiry and habitually opened the app without much thought.
I was greeted with this….
No accompanying message, no greetings…..nothing.
Just this weird looking browny-green relic that I guessed was some sort of ornament for the mantelpiece.
Needless to say, I was a little perplexed.
About 30 mins later another photo came through, it was the same item, but this time from a different angle. I could now confirm it was a ceramic pineapple capable of splitting into two halves….but still, why?
5 mins later all was revealed.
Turns out this was indeed a legitimate offer to a trade for Item #2, the vintage rattan magazine rack. Who knew that pineapple salt & pepper shakers were even a thing!
Think I might sit on this one for a while and see what else pops up.
