I found lots of Haeger pottery at last year's sales. As soon as you learn to recognize it, you'll see it everywhere. The pieces I like are classic vases and urns with soft colors and a matte finish. This little pedestal planter is one of a pair I picked up last summer for 50 cents each. It changes with the seasons; this held little pumpkins last fall and Christmas ornaments over the holidays. The planters look nice empty, too.
Haeger's pretty easy to identify. (Even I can figure out that mark!) A lot of pieces aren't marked on the bottom but still have their paper stick-on tags. If you look at the Haeger listings on eBay, you'll notice two things. One: Wow, is a lot of that ever ugly! The other is that even the prettier, more subtle pieces aren't selling for a whole lot. I'm hoping to find more on the cheap this season. (I'd show you the other pieces I found last year, but I need to save them for another day. I've got a lot of posts to go!)
