I needed a big dose of Saturday thrifting. Mr. Retro said "let's go"
and off we went. We have an Animal Welfare League thrift
that always has lots of goodies, but is about 45 minutes away.
We headed out for a Saturday thrifting road trip!
I found these sweet vintage dishes, partial set but enough for my needs.
Made by Steubenville Pottery Co., pattern is Fairlane.
Look at this wonderful backstamp. There was pride in their product.
I found this Caribe Co. Restaurant Ware platter, made in Puerto Rico.
Love the modern pattern, which is turquoise.
Mr. Retro found the vintage tablecloth. Dang him, he loves to
beat me to them! I'm not really complaining because either way,
it came home with me! Sweet baskets of bright flowers.
I didn't go crazy buying out the shop, because I am still cleaning
out my own stash at home and donating or consigning. Looking
forward to using my new dishes was enough for me.
I knew I had the perfect tablecloth to show off my new Steubenville.
Vintage tablecloth manufactured by Leacock.
Very simple tablescape for the purpose of showing off these pretty dishes.
I used the thrifted platter also.
Retro cool iced tea glasses
Fenton marble hobnail candlestick holders finish off the tablescape.
I blame all my purchases on Mr. Retro, he is an enabler, but we do love a road trip.
We had a delicious lunch at a local Chinese restaurant, and made a couple
more stops at thrifts. Mr. Retro found a few things for himself, and I
found a few things for crafting. Tired and happy, we headed home.
So...when you get home with your loot are you excited to unpack it and see
it all again, or is that just me? Love that part of thrifting too!
Looking forward to a busy week. How about you?
