More Thrifty Dishes

I did some browsing at my local Thrifty shop yesterday. Did you ever see that funny Ikea commercial? Well that is exactly how I felt yesterday leaving the thrift store.
They were having bargain prices at the thrift store if you could believe it. Everything in the store was 1/2 off!!! I was in heaven!
I did pick up a few more dishes and wanted to share them with you because I couldn't believe the prices! I walked out of the store paying.....are you ready for this? $11.10!! I couldn't believe it! So this is what I purchased.
This vintage English dessert plate was marked $8. I got it for $4!!

This plate was marked at $3.99. I got it for $2!! I didn't realize till I got home that this plate is for decorative purposes only and not to set food on it. But that's OK. I can still use it for display.

This next plate was priced at $2.99. I bought if for $1.50!!!

This shallow bowl was priced for $1.99. And I got it for $1!!!!!! Can you believe it? One dollar?!!!! Wow.

And last but not least. This glass bowl was marked up for $4. You guessed it. I got it for $2!!!!

I'm sure you can understand how I felt when I got into my car and was driving home. I was so tickled that I got all of these pretty dishes for a grand total of $11.10. My family members just looked at me and called it all junk!! Can you believe it! Yep you heard me right. The guys said it was junk. Those guys don't know a bargain when they see one. My hubby just said, "Whatever makes you happy." =) And it does. Guys just understand a great deal when they see one I guess. =) And I didn't just get these dishes because they were a great deal. I'm going to use them for entertaining. Sorry about the pictures turning out blurry this time. Maybe it was the lighting.
I hope everyone had a great week.

  1. This is "dish-tastic" for sure and for certain..

    The guys might not get it, but we thriftin' bloggers do!

    Have a great evening!☺

  2. I love every single dish! My goodness you found wonderful treasures at bargain prices! The first plate is so pretty and I love the delicate roses. The second one is beautiful too with the shabby chic looking roses! I love the lavendar in the third plate and the little flowers dancing all around the rim, it is precious! The bowl too is a great buy, such pretty pink roses, and it too with the roses around the rim so when it's in use you still get eye candy!
    And the bowl looks like amber depression glass! I love it all!
    You are one lucky lady!
    And great idea to display them on the plate rack when not in use!
    All the best,

  3. My thrift store is sorely lacking! I am jealous.

  4. Anne you got some very pretty dishes at bargain prices. Have a good day and wonderful weekend.

  5. Oh, you did great finding those pretty old dishes...I love the variety of patterns that you found...I know you were thrilled! Your hubby sure had the right thing to say, when you came home with your treasures. I definately liked his commentary...."Whatever makes you happy", He sounds like a sweetheart.
    It looks like you all had a great time at the air show too....we have been to a couple of those and they are fun. There's an air base about an hours drive from where we live. It is fun and exciting watching those jets fly...absolutely love that music you chose to go with the jet post. You are fun!
    Congrats on breaking out the sewing machine....I wish I could get better at sewing...I do good to get a straight line, but I still try. LOL! I do a little sewing here and there. I can't wait to see what all you blogging girls always inspire me.
    Hope you have a great day!
    Big hugs,
