Thrifty Thursday #1

Late as usual......This is my first time posting at "Thrifty Thursday" at Tales from Bloggeritaville, but I have been a faithful reader for quite a while.

You can click on the picture to enlarge it.

Last week was pretty fruitful at the local A.R.C. Thrift Store that I haunt a couple times a week. I found lots of old Homer Laughlin creamy white dishes at 25¢ apiece. I have a few other pieces, not in the photo, that I have slowly been collecting. Monday while in the city I stopped at Goodwill and was about to leave empty handed when I spotted this cute swan soup tureen; it was $1.98. I scooped it up fast as I saw another lady headed toward it.



Thanks for dropping by and commenting.

I love those white dishes, and for $.25 each I would be in heaven! I also like your rooster dishes; they look great on that plaid tablecloth. I think that is the prettiest tablescape I have seen yet.

What a great find! White dishes are my favorite...you can use them in so many ways.
I once had that tureen...a wedding present. In my youthful innocence, I sold it at a garage sale. Now, I am kicking myself...

You got some great things, Marigene! Love the whites! I'm laughing how you nabbed the swan before the other lady got to it :) Now that's a good shopper!

I have actually nudged people out of the way when I saw them heading for something at GW that I wanted....I have gotten some good stuff being pushy....You have to be fast!

I love your dishes, and the tureen is darling. What a great find! Glad you beat the other woman to it. It helps to have sharp pointy elbows when you are shopping at a thrift shop!
