Today I was not feeling good when I woke up at all! I ended up staying home.
Later in the afternoon, after I picked up my kid, I stopped at one of my favorite little thrift stores.
Little story: One of my older sisters has a set of dishes for every occasion. She has a set for Thanksgiving, for Christmas, for spaghetti night as well as a set when her best friend comes over.. and more! She actually gave my daughter her set of Royal Dalton when she passes away. I know!
Anyway… at Thanksgiving she used her Let It Snow dishes because she has over 40 plates, and I have been obsessed. I’ve seriously been looking online, in stores, in the paper, on TV… well, you get it. I want a winter set!
I have never had more than one set of dishes in my life. I am 53 and its about time. Yes?
Guess what I found today? Brand new plates, in the box for $30.00.
Aren’t these cute? They are called Mr. Snowman.
Here is the salad plate:
Here is the bowl:
And the set came with four mugs.
I absolutely love it! A little vintage, but I think they are darling!
I went online to see what they would sell for and…
I got a CrAzY good deal.
You can tell when plates have been used, because they are scratched. There is not a scratch on these plates.
I also picked up these 4 little plates for desserts and just to have, for $2.50 for all four.
They are pretty too and just nice to have on the counter to grab.
I picked up some extra Christmas cards for .50.
I just know that I am going to run out of the ones I bought at Pier One a couple of weeks ago.
So now I have winter plates for years to come and I have plenty of Christmas cards for this year.
I can add to the set of dishes too as the years go by. I saw them available online. I just think they are cute and the price was right!
Do you have more than one set of dishes? Are you obsessed like my sister? I think I will stop at having my regular ones and these. I’m good now.
Have you done any Christmas shopping yet? I have done ONE!
See you tomorrow.
