Why Buy New?

Thrift shops are the greatest.This darling salad/dessert plate is so pretty.
I just love it.
The holly around the edge and the bird
with greenery and pincones
in the center just make me smile.
The best part is that I purchased it in a Hospice thrift shop
in Grass Valley for $1.50!
~Yes, can you believe it~
Stay warm during these cold wintery times.

That is a beautiful plate! And what a great price.

My mum used to buy 'odd' plates and hang them around the kitchen. There was a story behind each one.

Beautiful - I love buying vintage - everything seems to be so much prettier - and less expensive!
