Today, while I was out and about, I stopped at several sales, and wouldn't you know it...only 2 sales had old china! One place, my first stop of the day was the lucky stop because I got her some great dinner and dessert plates for fifty cents each for the dinner plates and a quarter each for the dessert plates.
The only other place I stopped that had china wanted $12 a plate!!! I had to really control myself and not outright laugh when the lady told me her price! I just smiled and kept on walking. Do you ever notice when you are actually looking for something-you have the hardest time finding it, but when you aren't looking for it, it is at every sale you go to?
I've seen china at so many sales already this year, that I was sure I could put a big pile of them in my car for her today. Oh, well...more things to search for! The only stipulations on the china are that it can't be all white, and it has to be a dollar or less per piece. Oh, and we have 155 place settings to go...plus flatware. I LOVE a good challenge!
Despite not finding much to help Bonnie out, I did manage to load up my car with LOTS more
Did you get out to any sales today? I left the house expecting upper 60's lower 70's for the day and right now it is just hitting 55 degrees! Hope it's warmer where you're at, and I hope you got some good junk today!!!
Here is what came home with me...
My blog friend Shara over at Monkeybox has gotten me hooked on blow molds!
Needs some TLC and paint, but it was a good deal, and I have had a LOT of success with benches.
Another charity sale thing...eh it was a quarter.
Crusty, rusty Christmas tin.
I LOVE this poinsettia tray!
Yes, I bought a set of old wooden crutches...for another project I have in mind.
Here is the quilt un-folded.
