For those of you who have been around for a while, you will remember that I introduced you to my Aunt Tena and her amazing pottery back at my Anniversary Giveaway Jubilee. You can read about how thrilled Beth and Jennifer were with their prizes from Earthborn Pottery here and here, respectively.

Well, I have fabulous news.

Tena recently was asked to create and loan all of the dinnerware needed for the Birmingham Museum of Art’s Annual Ball (which, by the way, was a $750 per person event. Needless to say, I was NOT in attendance).

Now that the ball is over, Tena has 300 of the above red-footed dinner plates (that have been used only once) to sell.

So, instead of their usual price of $54 per plate, she is selling these plates for $20 per plate! The minimum order for this super deal is 10 plates, but for my readers only, she is offering a minimum order of 5 plates. Which means that you can get $270 worth of handmade, designer pottery for $100!!

However, you can start your pottery collection off with a bang, because Tena has given me two of these plates to offer to you as a giveaway!
