The top plate was a set of six, ($1.25 each, big money!) so those are staying here to live and will be put into my china cabinet to use for dessert plates. I just love the rich bright colors of the flowers in the centers.
Yesterday, I had a chance to stop at a Salvation Army store. When there are no garage sales, that's a winter destination for fun vintage finds as I'm sure you all know! As always, I grabbed a cart and went straight to the back to see what they call Bric-a-Brac. That and the old linens, are my favorite, I usually glance over at the furniture to see if there's antiques, the showcase up front with 'collectibles' and skip the rest. And at times I really luck out.
These are my goodies from yesterday. The little plates will make great gifts, soon I'll show you a gift I recently gave that included a couple little plates like these. The one with all the flowers in the middle was a set of six, so those will go in the china cabinet to use for desert plates. I can see using those to serve a piece of that thick cocnout cake after Easter dinner!
Not shown is a pizza stone with the metal rack that looks like it was used once and someone didn't know you had to season it before they're really great to use. It was $2! Also, I got a group of tall cut glass candy jars that my niece will use for her wedding reception's "candy bar" for about a dollar each!
A blue enamelware roasting pan. I think this will work great for a meatloaf, or it would be a great container for anything around the house that would need organizing.
And, with all the blue dishes I've got, I've never had one like this. It's a Currier and Ives print. You know where that's going! Yup, right into the cabinet in the living room!
And, finally this cut-glass hobnail dish...for less than $1~ Too good to leave there!
