My new old stuff
I have been to several local thrift shops and come out empty handed. I always do better at out of town thrifts. Over the summer I got 3 of these these super cool 1950s cups and saucers up on Cape Cod (the third one is in the dishwasher.) I have been on the hunt for this exact set but in yellow and green plaid, since I inherited a partial set of those from my aunt. Imagine my delight to find these in pink! And there were a few dinner plates and bowls all taped together with a $12 price tag. I was stressing in the thrift shop aisle because The Saint was waiting in the car and I knew he'd go bananas if I bought all of the dishes. It was like Sophie's Choice right there in the Salvation Army store. True. So I only got the cups and saucers. Tis better to have thrifted and lost than to have never thrifted at all.
