Friday's Find #141


TGITF Friends! Okay, raise your hand if you figured out my hint from Wednesday. I'm guessing most of you know me well enough that if I say I found something green, vintage and loved all over, I can only be referring to one thing--jadeite! This week's feature is all about jadeite but have you ever noticed the wide range of prices associated with the pretty green glassware? I've seen this more and more lately and thought it might be helpful to share the actual value of the collectibles.
