Remember a couple of weeks ago I said, I found something
at the thrift store I'd share with you later...well this is it!
I wasn't even looking for new dishes, well okay I was, but
I was shopping for plain white, (they don't even have to
match), but what should I spot??? But the most beautiful vintage
China dishes with the sweetest little flower boarders with white
centers and a large rim of the prettiest pale yellow I've ever
seen...but again, (reminding myself), even though
they were truly gorgeous, I was ONLY looking for
plain white dishes for everday.
just around the corner,
I saw a beautiful platter,
and a bowl,
another platter ...
YOU Guessed it,
they matched the dinner plates I'd just seen...
telling myself, I don't really need these...
Really I don't,
I went back and loaded up the dinner plates and started
looking through the smaller plates and bowls and sure
enough, there was the whole set, everything but cups
and saucers...before I knew it I had a shopping cart
full of a beautiful 'Sampy' China set (stamped made in Japan).
~such a sweet pattern~
large bowls and small fruit bowls (or cups)
dessert plates and a gorgeous platter
small platter, sugar bowl and creamer
...and the next day,
my friend Pattie found four
cups & saucers and the bread plates
whilst browsing through 'OUR FAVORITE'
thrift store! Needless to say, she
drove over to my school to let me
know I should go back to the thrift
store after work to check out the dishes
that they'd just put out, that went with my set!
And the best part of this thrifting story is...
I took all the dishes up to the teller and had
them hold them while I drove home to
pick up the two boxes of items I had
ready for the thrift store (and had forgotten to
load up), I traded them for a 20% discount
that I was able to use on my NEW dishes!!! YAY!
I just love them, but now I'm thinking I
need would love a new
china hutch with a glass door and maybe a light
to show off my new set of dishes!
It doesn't hurt to DREAM!
