What I've Been Up To

I spent few days with my Mom week before last and of course we had a a thrifting expedition. We finally made it to the Catholic charity resale shop and then she took me to an awesome place called Savers.
The charity shop had a few goodies, mostly in the form of 5 damask napkins at 25 cents a pop. I also picked up a modern reticulated plate to add to my white molded plate collection.
We hit the jackpot at Savers. I've been wanting a romantic place setting but at $40 dollars a place setting the Pope Gosser Cathay Rose I really like was out of the question. So when I saw this it had to come home with me. I bought 7 dinner plates, 4 for $2.99 and 8 salad plates 6 for $2.49. You can't beat those prices! The pattern is Beverly Rose by Tabletops Unlimited. (The red-headed duck is quite pleased with all the attention and photo ops.)
Look at that molded edge! I'm sure there is a technical term for this but I don't know what it is.

I also picked up this little lovely at Savers. It's Rogers silverplate and it is was $4.99.

And speaking of molded edges, this came from an estate sale. I think it was 75 cents. This was a purchase I made several weeks ago but since we're talking molding it was appropriate

I have lots more to catch up on as I have been a bad blogger.
See you soon!


  1. Lovely pieces and at such great prices. You must be very please with you new acquisitions. I sure would be. I love dishes with all those pretty details around the edges.
    I especially like the comment about the redhead. Gave me a good chuckle to start off my day. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Especially love the platter, thanks for sharing your finds!

  3. Lydia, you found some great pieces. The embossed rim of the plate is beautiful.
    Savers is one of my favorite thrift stores, I always find something in there!
