    Oh yeah, I know that story. It goes like this - Elizabeth winds up captured by reavers, worn out, and is then repeatedly used as bait to lure in other survivors. The cats? Well that's an afternoon's worth of food for the reavers.

    That's it. A place where nothing works.

    A Woman Bought Four Ceramic Plates at a Salvation Army for $8. They Turned Out to Be Original Picassos and Worth Over $40,000

    Nancy Cavaliere, a New Yorker, discovered the plates on her way home from work in 2017.

    Artnet News, May 17, 2023
    She made the purchase, but after a few online searches, she realized she had something more valuable on her hands. The plates, it turned out, belonged to Picasso’s “Visage Noir” series of hand-painted ceramics, produced in a pottery studio in the southern French town of Madoura in the 1940s.

    “When I tell you I googled this set… and saw how much they were worth and almost cried, passed out, pissed on myself—I’m not lying,” Cavaliere said.

    The following year, she sold three of her four plates at Sotheby’s for roughly $12,000, $13,000, and $16,000, respectively. “I was in my office at my lunch break watching this live auction go down, crying my eyes out,” she said.

    The fourth piece, which bears Picasso’s signature, was stored in a safe deposit box. Cavaliere plans to sell it in 20 years and give the money to her daughter, perhaps for a trip around Europe. “It’s crazy,” she said, “that I actually own something that Picasso signed for himself.”
