new blue and white dishes

 I've been staying out of thrift stores for the most part lately. I am trying to get
rid of collected "stuff" in my basement as it is ~ I certainly don't need anything else!
Well, the other day as I was passing Goodwill, I had the urge to stop in. I was looking
for a table runner and possibly some spring tops. I did find a table runner and just
one spring shirt, but I also found these bowls:



I am such a sucker for blue and white, especially when it comes to dishes.
And made in England? I'm sold. I also found these bee salad plates. They have
no marks on the back except for "Made in Thailand".
 


And here's the runner I found. It's reversible, with smaller checks on the back.
 

Everything - runner, bowls, plates - were only 99 cents each.
Can't beat that kind of shopping!

  1. Hi Melanie. I truly enjoyed looking at your beautiful new treasures!
    The prices were so cheap!
    I would say they are even cheaper then England prices! And they go so nicely together too! :)

  5. P.S. I think your Goodwill must be cheaper than ours. I was in there yesterday and I found a candle holder I would have liked to buy. The Goodwill price was $3.99. I turned it over and there was a yellow sale price ticket on the bottom that said $2.00. When I showed it to the GW worker she told me she doesn't do the pricing. So I just put it back on the shelf.

    1. That does happen at my Goodwill, too...some things are way over-priced.

  6. WOW! Our Goodwill doesn't have nice stuff that cheap! Those dishes are all beautiful and the runner too. You got a whole tablescape. Great buys!

    1. This particular Goodwill I go to has the best stuff and most of the prices are low - decent!

  7. So pretty, Melanie. Our Goodwill has nothing that nice or that cheap. I try not to go there anymore because they're such a ripoff for total junk. I'm always jealous to see what you find at yours.

    1. It's funny how Goodwill stores are different. The stores that are junky in my area are Salvation Army.
