A few finds

Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th!

I haven't been out much since my last post. I've gone to the thrift store exactly once, and of course what do I find but more Corelle?
This time it's the coordinating Colonial Mist pattern, which I'd never seen before. These 5 plates were taped together for 2 dollars and I just couldn't pass them up. And a couple of Butterfly Gold teacups were there as well.

Yesterday we got to go to a few of my favorite antique stores. My husband said he could hear the quick intake of air when I saw these from several feet away:
And actually, it wasn't even the whole casserole together. It was just the lid, but I had the casserole at home with no decorated lid. So I was very happy to be able to reunite them.

The Friendship baker is the first time I've ever seen this piece in the wild. It was more than I cared to pay for it, but less than ebay, so I was coming home with it, without a doubt. The dealer who rang me up was the one who brought it in, and she kinda hugged it to her before wrapping it up. My husband said that he didn't think she'd wanted to give it up just yet. She told me she'd just put it out an hour before. Lucky timing!

That's all my finds for now.

Hope you're finding fantastic treats and treasures!

Happy Thrifting!


  1. I never realized that Colonial Mist came in plates too. And SCORE on the Friendship baker. I found mine at the flea market a few years ago and paid $12 for it which at the time I thought was a lot. I never realized how much people want for these!


  2. Never heard of Colonial Mist plates either, I hate the pattern, but I do love Friendship - awesome pieces. I had seen the lid in the wild once, all buy itself too, but it was too worn & scratched. Sat at the store for days. Someone rescued it!
