Every Friday I go to Goodwill. I know, I'm obsessed. Believe it or not, I sometimes walk out empty-handed, but not today. I found a lovely McCoy 1930s basket weave planter for two dollars. The fun part is researching online when I get home. It's currently selling for $50.
McCoy is an American company which produced pottery in Roseville, Ohio, from 1910 to the mid-1970s. I like to keep an eye out for unmarked pieces in garage sales and thrift stores. My favorites are those I find with dirt still clinging to the sides, maybe even a dead plant.

You can tell by the way it is unglazed around the crack.
