Thrift Store Thursday

I am joining Holly today for Thrift Store Thursday, and sharing one of my favorite finds. It was not all purchased at the thrift store, but a major portion was due to me being at the thrift store. I'll explain. I have wanted some off white/white dishes for quite some time because they are so versatile, but not wanting to spend a lot. When we unpacked my daughters kitchen in her new house she gave me these.

Needless to say she had oodles of dishes. She purchased these at the church yard sale and gave them to me. I was excited because I could use the bowls to mix with some plates that I had purchased for $1 ea. at another yard sale.
then the other day I stopped at our thrift store and found this

Teapot $1.29 exact match to the other dishes.

At the same time I overheard a lady talking about an estate sale that had lots of stuff! I headed right over, and trust me the LOTS of stuff was gone, but tucked in a closet was more of this













Now I have all of this for about 16.00

6 plates, 8 pasta/serving bowls, 12 cereal bowls, 8 fruit bowls, 6 bread & butter plates, 6 cups and saucers, l Lg teapot, 1 SM teapot, 2 sugar, 1 creamer, 1 platter, 1 covered casserole. I will be on the look out to add to this to make a complete set. I was amazed at finding the two things on the same day. Nothing like that ever happens to me. Thrift store shopping has allowed me to have some fun little extras without breaking the bank. Have a great day! Jackie

Those tea pots are just gorgeous. I can't believe you got the one for $1.29.

Wow! Excellent finds, and what luck to find so much to match, in so many different places. Love the style -- very "Adams" looking, a lovely old American look. Gorgeous!
