More Thrift Store Finds

Pin It Now!

I found some more Noritake China at the Goodwill a couple weeks ago. It's not the same pattern that I found before but they are all mixing and matching together quite well. There were only 3 dinner plates, 99 cents each, 3 salad plates, 79 cents each and 3 bowls, 99 cents each. Below you can see my different patterns together. The bluebird plates aren't Noritake but I think they all go well together.

I also found this tureen for only $5.99. It only says Austria on the bottom so I don't know much about it. It's missing the ladle so I'm going to look for a pretty silver ladle to use with it.

I also found this cute Bunnykins mug for $2.99
I hope everyone is having a great Labor Day weekend! I wish every weekend was a 3-day weekend...this is nice being home on a Monday! I'm going to work on a small project today so hopefully I'll have some pictures of it to share later in the week.

Those pieces are beautiful. And I can only imagine what your little project entails. One thing I know for sure - it'll be beautiful and I could never do it!

Catherine said...

Love the china...and you can't beat the prices. Good job! I've been thinking about the paper roses you did a while back. When I was home last Tuesday, Martha had a rerun featuring the rose lady. I have my coffee filters and watercolors...just need to get the wire and paper for leaves.

I like the different patterns better than if they were all the same, Cindy. I love having friends over for dinner and I can mix and match my vintage tableware. The tureen is lovely.
Looking forward to seeing your new project! :)

Enjoy your Monday at home! All those china pieces do mix well together and I love that soup tureen!


Penny Carlson said...

I love the look of mix and match china! And you are collecting a wonderful set. Now, I have passed up tureens without the ladle and never thought about looking for a vintage silver one! Thanks for the idea :-)

Andrea said...

Happy Labor Day! I love your bluebird plates - they are so sweet and they do go perfectly with your new finds.

I'm typing this from the Denver airport! Trying to kill some time between flights. Gosh I love wireless.

I'm always on the look out for china at my thrift store, but never see anything as nice as what you have found. I love the mix 'n match look. It's much more interesting.

ITA about the three day weekend.
If only!

I love that tureen! I've always wanted one...I don't know why I've never picked one up. Yours is beautiful and for my kind of price!!


Terri and Bob said...

I think they look lovely together. I went to Goodwill on Saturday and had no luck whatsoever. I will keep trying, though!

Ginger said...

Very beautiful. I would love to see picture of your bird plates also, they do look pretty together

Mary said...

Lovely china finds Cindy - mix and match always works better than having everything the same!
I collect white/cream tureens - but have never found one at such a bargain price - lucky you.

Glad you had an extra day off - hope you share your project as I know it will be something wonderful!

mary said...

Oh, love those beautiful dishes! I'm chomping at the bit to get to my favorite thrift store that reopens tomorrow for the fall. :)

I just found your blog ~ I love it ! You found some amazing things ~ ours never has such pretties !!!

DC said...

I made my first trip to Goodwill Saturday - inspired by you to do so. No good finds that day, but I will try again. Your mixed patterns look just fine together!

BTW, you got me hooked on the sparkling lemonade drinks - that has saved me this summer - saved me from having a parched throat!

Rosemary said...

Hi Cindy,
I love your china. It is so fun to mix the patterns. I love that.
Can't wait to see what your project is.
Hope you had a great Monday off.

Dana said...

The china is beautiful together.

I'm new to this blogging thing, but i have to say yours is my favorite. Your home is inspiring!

Great finds. Each of my kids received a Bunnykins set when they were born and I love the stuff. So cute!

Hi Cindy,

I just love that little box and what a great idea! I'll have to remember to be more open minded when I see something that would work with a little tweaking!
