Today. It was on the top shelf of our local Value Village and, at first, I thought it was just an ugly pot like something I might have gotten as a wedding present. But when I picked it up I realized it's a vintage Le Creuset in a pattern that is so retro that it's almost cool. Looked it up and discovered that it's a 1980's design called Petits Fruits and Le Creuset has actually re-issued it recently (it may even be currently available!). I got it for $21 (including my Tuesday Seniors discount!). Very pleased.
