Yesterday I had the pleasure of spending the day in Sligo town enjoying two of my favorite pastimes, eating a delicious lunch and browsing the second-hand shops for hidden gems. Sligo has plenty of charity shops to choose from so I never come away empty-handed. I get to go home with something new(ish) and the various shops get some much-needed donations for their charities. Perfect! Everybody’s happy.
The saucers are Arklow pottery, an Irish company which opened in the 1930s in Arklow, Co Wicklow. Sadly, I think the company has closed down but finding the jug has whetted my appetite for finding some more Arklow pieces.
It fits as though it has always been there.
