Today I went to an estate sale. It was an absolute bust. On the way home, I spotted a sign that said “Attic in the Street”. The whole block was shut down and it was full of yard sales. I had to stop, because you never know. I found parking and began to make my way through the tables. A woman next to me started speaking with me and said she was an antiques dealer and there was a man with a jeweler’s loop studying cufflinks (which I later bought). The competition was pretty rough. A beautiful morning on a crowded street around 8:30.

on the Teapot
As an addendum, a very kind scholar in Hong Kong translated the teapot! It reads:
"Plum was adopted as a symbol of the literati.
They enjoy the wine under the moonlight."
