I wasn't planning on doing any thrift shopping this week, but while driving home from the grocery store I spotted a rummage sale. Of course, I stopped to take a gander at what was for sale.
I caught a glimpse of the pattern and knew that it was Staffordshire, I had seen the pattern before but didn't know the name. I wasn't in the market for any more dinnerware, but I asked the question.
Children's clothes, toys, miscellaneous doodads, and sitting on the edge of the cement driveway I saw these boxes.
|Mom's china could mean vintage china.|
Me: How much do you want for the china?
Rummage sale lady: I meant to mark that, how about $15.00.
Me: Do you know how many place settings there are?
Rummage sale lady: I think there are eight inside those two boxes.
So, without unwrapping all the dishes in the boxes I paid and brought them home.
|This is the pattern I saw peeking out|
from the newspaper: it's called
Yorkshire, made in Staffordshire England.
|Eleven place settings, dinner plate, salad plate,|
bowl, and saucer and cup.
|Creamer and sugar bowl.|
|Two oval serving platters.|
|Two vegetable bowls.|
|This is the markings on the bottom of the dishes.|
|Sixty three pieces of stunning dishes, all for $15.00.|
I paid 25 cents per piece.
What did you find this week while thrift shopping? I can't wait to see all of your treasures.
