First Trip to Quimper
In the Fall of 1999, shortly after the first meeting my family (mother, father, and one brother) decided it would be fun to take a trip to Quimper. Judy Datesman was a great hostess and the trip was very memorable.
I remember my awe when entering the HB Henriot factory and having a tour. I didn't want to leave, I could not leave. As I mentioned before I have a really hard time buying things especially when there is an abundance. My mother insisted that I had to buy some Quimper. I would regret it later if I came all this way and didn't buy anything.
Most people would rejoice in this kind of decision. For me it was kind of painful. So many choices - which direction should I go. I would have these pieces me entire life (except for the one that broke in the story below)! Big decisions.
So what did I decide to buy.
Fish platter and complimentary plates.
Nativity ( I have since added more pieces)
6 Dinner Plates (Pictured in the post below)
Do I have any regrets, no except I wish I had purchased more!
Happy Collecting! - Katie
