I will join Leigh of Tales From Bloggeritaville for Thrifty Thursday. Please stop by to see what everyone else has found to be thrifty. Thanks for hosting, Leigh.
I have been suffering a nasty winter cold, so haven't been out haunting the thrift shops too much lately. I did go to Goodwill and a small church thrift shop the other day. The last few times out there just doesn't seem to be a big variety of dishes, which is what I look for, mainly. I don't know if it is the time of year or if more people are looking for them, too. It probably is a good sign that I have enough as I am running out of storage space.
At Goodwill, I did find 3 creamy white soup bowls (49¢ each) to go with the set of dishes I used here, a small basket (49¢), and a little chalkboard (99¢). The church thrift is very small, but I did find 6 nice little eared bowls ($2.50 for the set) and a couple sunflower napkins (25¢ each). The bowls are just right for soup at lunchtime. They are gold rimmed with little flowers inside the bowl and are marked Bavaria Germany of the bottom. They remind me of vintage cream soup bowls, but don't have the handles.
The silver is some I picked up last week at Goodwill. I tried not to match any of it, other than 4 soup spoons that, unfortunately, weren't in this picture. The vaseline glass spooner is from my small collection...not a thrifty deal!
