Thrift store score!



I didn't have time to take any GOOD photos this morning but I just had to share! Yesterday on my lunch break I went to my local thrift store and found a huge set of these insanely adorable vintage dishes!!! I've photographed a few of my favorite pieces. The second pic is a gravy boat and the third pic shows a creamer in the background. I was so excited to find these because I already own some of the teacups from this set. Not only that, but this set is extremely similar to my pink set here.

This aqua set at the thrift store came with nine teacups and matching saucers and BIG stack of dessert plates. I also got a sugar bowl and some other odds and ends. I got the whole thing for $14.00. YAY!

  24. My grandmother collected this pattern from grocery stores when she was first married, and several years ago she gave me what she had. I found 40 or more pieces one day at a garage sale for $30, so now I have a huge collection. I've been trying to find some of the coffee mugs. I have 15 or so of the tea cups and saucers, and only one coffee mug! :) I also have a zillion of the desert plates and dinner plates, but only 2 of the salad plates. Great find!!
