Today is Vintage Thingies Thursday. Be sure to stop over at Coloradolady's blog and check out all the wonderful vintage, thrifty finds!
I've also linked with Thrift Store Thursday and Goodwill Goodies. So please stop by both blogs and take a look see.
On Saturday I needed to run to the post office to mail a birthday package to my little niece. On the way home, I happened to stop in the Goodwill. I haven't been to this particular Goodwill in quite a long time. I came out
So what treasures did I fine, you ask? Well you remember a few posts back when I mentioned that I've been collecting restaurant dishes, most noteably Buffalo china dishs? Well guess what I found at the Goodwill?
I first spied the cups -
hummmm, good price.....
I moved on from the aisle with china and looked around the store. Sometimes I find some good books. For some reason, I went back to the China/Housewares section and took another look.
Not just one plate for that price -
a stack of four plates for $2.06.
Just as I was putting the first stack into my cart, someone starts declaring over the loud speaker what their sale is for the day. And guess what? The dishes are buy one get one free!! Whoo-hoo! So I bought eight plates for $2.06. Now that was a deal for me :-)
I also picked up this lovely little piece -
The marking on this dish is also Buffalo China and it has the number 1916. Now I don't really think this dish is from 1916, but it could have been a trademark date or something. I've never run across Buffalo Fine China before.
So I finally have enough plates to serve a little luncheon.
What time can I expect you??
Thanks for stopping by. Happy Thriftin'
