White Dishes

I popped in a thrift store that benefits domestic violence victims, which is within walking distance of my office, last week. I found several more pieces for my hodge podge of white dishes collection! These dishes are salad size. Four of them are by Mikasa and when I checked Replacements, LTD., I found these for sale for almost $25 each! I think I paid 25 cents each.



This week I ventured into a newly opened "Funky Junk" type store that sells antiques, vintage items and painted items. Things like a vintage suitcase that has been painted lavender sit together with antiques and vintage dishes. I love plundering through these types of things and bought these three white pitchers.



I also bought a small piece of furniture that I'll show next week. Hint: It fits in with my cottage/farmhouse theme, but didn't cost much.

I love looking at Replacements, Ltd... they have amazing prices! *lol* I wonder who buys that stuff? However, the company has been in business a long time...

We used to have a Mikasa outlet in Burlington and I always liked to go into the clearance section and buy pieces. Good buy on the 25 cent plates!! White dishes are so pretty and you can put any color with them and they are still gorgeous! Can't wait to see next week's furniture find!

Such good bargains, Debbie. Wow, .25 a plate? That's amazing. I love the light in the picture of the pitchers - so pretty. You did great on your finds.
