She’d seen it on the flea market, the kettle and matching enamel mugs. “Perfect,” she’d said in that don’t-argue-with-me voice.

The kettle joined a rustic-looking tablecloth, folded neatly on the farmhouse table, a snip from an antique fair, and she put the loaf tins in the oven.

The potential buyers left, smiling happily, taking with them the aroma of fresh-baked bread, and she turned to me in triumph. “They bought it. Trick works every time.”
