Hate to say it, but it was pretty much a complete letdown. I bought a few piece of Butterfly Gold Corelle at a thrift stop along the way, but I've posted my random BFG Corelle finds so many times before on this blog it feels like that's all I ever post about. And bad thing is, in my area, the thrifts are so bad, that's really as exciting as it gets.
Here's my two antique store finds:
First up, this Pyrex dinnerware cream and sugar are the first I've had the chance to buy that A) had the lid and B) weren't the gold leaf that I don't collect.
People are funny creatures, tell you what.
Next up, I paid a small fortune for these, but they go with my set. The booth I bought these in had more turquoise ripple and some pink, but each piece was between $12 - 20. I'm one placesetting short of service for 8. If they hadn't been so high, I'd have finished out my set. But for now I'm going to say 7 is my lucky number and leave it at that :-)
But speaking of luck, today I meant to stay home and clean house. But it hit high noon and I decided I really, really wanted to go to the flea market. My husband must have been in the same mood, because he didn't question it at all. In fact, when we stopped to get gas, he spontaneously bought two scratch off lottery tickets - one for me and one for him - and they both won!
I won two whole dollars and he won 5, but hey, winning is still winning, right?! :-)
So we go to one of my favorite antique stores along the way and I find the missing solid blue bowl from my Horizon Blue bowl set and a spare of the smallest size.
So I ended up spending every penny today that I didn't spend the other day when I didn't find much. Funny how that works out. I am still surprised when I ever find pieces I don't have and still want. Sometimes it's seems like it's months in between that happening, then all at once I have a day like today and find several all at once.
Hope you're finding great stuff!
