A Sign of the Times!

Isn't that the most beautiful sign to see displayed in front of my favorite thrift store? The whole store was 50% off!!! Wow what a fun time for exploration.

My son was with me when we made this stop. He really scored when he found several Hardy Boy books. There was a whole box in the children's book section, so he sorted through them, checking which one's he had and which ones were missing from his little collection.

Because we made this stop on the way home, I did not spend a lot of time there. Thrift stores are not high on the list of the most favorite things for young men to do ;-)

Now my sweet friend Marydon from Feedsack Fantasy, asked if I would post a picture of the piece of Buffalo china that I found a week ago. I've had a hard time photographing the little bowl, so I tried taking the picture with no flash. Anyway, I hope she can see the marking on the bottom and can give me some insight.

Marydon, I hope you can enlarge the picture. My little point and shoot digital limits how close it will get.

Enjoy your thriftin' week!

G'morn, Jocelyn ~ This is Buffalos better china pattern. I believe that is either the wild rose or cherry pattern. BUT for sure you can look up in a book store KOVEL's price guide for antiques, & also in the Buffalo Pottery price guide book at a book store (Barnes & Noble, etc).

The other resource for finding china patterns is

It is WONDERFUL! for resourcing. you can even send them a note & pic online & they will assist you but sometimes they drag their heels.

The resource I have doesn't show that exact pattern, durnnit.

It sure is pretty tho. Any time I can assist anyone let me know, ladies.

Have a lovely week. TTFN ~Marydon

50% off, how fun! Your little piece of china is very pretty. Don't you love knowing the pattern and a little about the pieces, maybe someone will know.

Yay for Hardy Boys! And a great BIG yay for half off, lol! Love your china. I wonder if you can do macro with your camera - I didn't know I could until I found a tutorial on the web, and discovered that yes, my camera will do that! Most point and shoots have it.
