A few weeks ago, I stopped in at my new (to me) favorite thrift store. I was walking around looking at all the goodies and soon spotted six of these dinner plates. No markings, but they are really cute and I had to have them. They were 25 cents a piece, so how could I leave them? These green country rooster, weather vein inspired plates are adorable.
That particular day, this was all I found, just the six plates. This happens so many times, I find bits and pieces and have to decide if I like them enough to purchase them or leave them for someone else to discover.
About a week in a half later I stopped again to see if there were any treasures I might need.....
I could hardly believe it....the small saucers and bowls that matched my plates. Six of each. Oh, I could not get them in the cart fast enough. I never would have thought I'd happen on these again. I wondered how long they had sat there waiting on me to find them! A week? A day? A few minutes?
I never did find the cups, but that is fine by me. The small plates are more like dessert plates as are the small bowls. They look like a rooster weather vane to me....very cute. I made the mistake to try and research this design..big mistake...found more pieces and a few other things I am really trying to not purchase. After all, how many plates do I need? There are only two people who live here now!
Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday!
