I am just so excited about some recent thrift-store finds that I had to squeeze in a quick post about them before bed.
Check out this cute and functional tin cake serving and storing dish. I have no idea exactly how old it is or what it’s supposed to be called – all I know is that I thought it was precious! At $4, how could I not purchase it?
Secondly, I couldn’t resist this large vintage dinnerware set from the late 1970’s: Lenox Temperware in the Sprite Pattern. Priced at only $10, it was a steal for that number of dishes! They’re heavy and sturdy and I just loooove the cute and whimsical floral pattern! Bonus: they claim to be freezer, oven, and dishwasher safe. I’ve tested the dishwasher part already, and they passed with flying colors.
Until now I’ve kept things simple with just four place-settings of my favorite Denby stoneware. However, they’re pretty pricey and although I’ve never had a casualty there’s always the chance. So it will be nice to use these most days, especially when entertaining groups outside. (Yay – no more need for plastic or paper plates!)
Now, after a moment’s research on replacements.com, I am jonesing for the matching casserole dishes and this coffee pot:
I also scored a cute old hat box for $2. Photos of that will come later when I reveal m vintage hat collection. Until then, happy thrifting!
