On a few trips to Goodwill lately I found a few treasures.
This past Saturday after dropping Joanna off at swim lessons ( Jeanne, Jessica and Andrew were all at the pool) Aimee, Jake and I stopped at the nearest Goodwill. I found a cute black and white dress and a couple of sweaters, Jess found a summer dress (she joined us later), Aimee found a few tops and athletic pants, Jake found a few old Veggietales tapes he couldn’t live without. In the back of the store in the house wares section they were having a $0.10 sale on cups, saucers, and plates. I found this lovely set of dishes (fine china Royal Court Carnation Japan) in soft pink and grey. 51 pieces for…….. get this $5.10! I can’t decide if I’m going to keep them or gift them. Know anyone who might like them? ;)
There are six full place settings and two settings minus the cup and saucer and a few spare pieces. All in excellent condition no scratches or chips. I think they were made in the 40’s of 50’s if not then definitely in that style.
I bought these two cute aqua/floral bowls. Wouldn’t fried rice be so yummy from these.
Cute vintage pitcher to hold delicious fresh squeezed orange juice.
Lovely white compote to go with all of my white serving pieces.
All at fabulous Goodwill prices.
On another recent GW trip I bought a $9.99 coffee table that we’re going to revamp for our family room. I’ll post before and afters of that when we tackle that project.
