Be prepared to hate me just a little…..and let’s have a linky favorite thrift party!

My friends,

You are looking at the BEST deal I think I’ve ever gotten in.my.life. I was searching Craig’s List a few weeks ago, and just typed in vintage ironstone for the heck of it……After I pressed enter I almost passed out…….

See all of this lurverlyness?? See the 12 dinner plates, the 12 salad plates, the 12 dessert cups??

I can’t wait to decorate my Thanksgiving table with all this lurverlyness…. I know I’ve used that word twice…. I just can’t seem to help myself…..

Great score! Yes, your little ones are adorable and I love the outfits you made them.

Christine said...

That is the best deal anyone's ever gotten!

Are you kidding me?! When I was little, ahem & we will NOT say how long ago that was, my grandmother had that same set of dishes! I always loved them. Great deal!

That is a great deal! I hardly ever pay full price for anything. Just a few weeks ago I started buying Christmas presents -- I bought a $160 flatware set with all sorts of extra serving pieces for $35, and a dinnerware setting for 12 plus some extra serving pieces for $55 (it was originally $160 too). JCPenney's was having a wicked crazy sale.

That is an amazing deal!! I don't have anything to link but I love deals! I bought Dmitry a bed and a desk (on two separate occasions) at the Goodwill. After a little overhaul they totally look Pottery Barn and are amazing quality.
