Piggly Wiggly Dishes
Today is Show and Tell Friday at Kelli's House.
My mother collected two sets of dishes for me from Piggly Wiggly.
The first one was in 1975 or 1976. The way it worked was that each time a person spent a certain amount of money on groceries you could buy a piece of the china at an inexpensive price. So each week my mother would bring home 2 or 3 pieces of the china for my hope chest. It ended up being a large set!
Then again in the year 2000, Piggly Wiggly offered more dishes. This time the name of the dishes was "The Cades Cove Collection". My husband and I visited Cades Cove in Tennessee while on our honeymoon so we just had to have a set.
So this time my mother AND my husband worked on accumulating this set. The dishes have apples and cherries on them. We really enjoy these dishes and use them on a daily basis. We ended up with a large set of the Cades Cove dishes which includes several serving pieces.
I hardly ever shop at Piggly Wiggly any more, but the store is popular with many folks in our area.
Has anyone else collected dishes from Piggly Wiggly or some other store?
