Wis. woman finds rare artwork at Goodwill

Posted:

SHOREWOOD (WKOW) -- A Southeastern Wisconsin woman picked up an unbelievable find at a local Goodwill store.

A piece of artwork caught Karen Mallet's attention, but it was the signature in the corner that convinced her to grab it. Turns out, it's a print called "Red Nose," by Alexander Calder.

Mallet paid $12.99 for it at the Shorewood Goodwill, outside of Milwaukee. Turns out it's worth quite a bit more: $9 thousand. She says for now, she's going to keep it.
