I Love Thrift Shops!!!




I'll say it again...I Love Thrift Shops! I never walk out of a thrift shop without finding something special. A few weeks ago I spotted a basket with some dishes in it. On closer inspection I noticed the Cunningham & Pickett mark on the bottom of a saucer. I didn't know the name, but I do know what I like and I loved these dishes. The color is wonderful..soft robins egg blue ( Martha Stewart would love these) with cream and pretty flowers. I bought a full service for six for...are you ready..........$35.00. When I got them home I pulled up the Replacements website and priced them at.......$298.00!!! I am telling you ladies their are fabulous finds in these little shops. Not sure what I will do with them yet, but so happy I own them. Maybe someday I will have a little brick and mortar shop of my own.
Don't forget to enter my giveaway..just follow my blog and leave a comment under the giveaway post. Will pick a winner on friday the 5th of June. Good luck, be kind and stay creative.
