Oh dear....More Dishes!

Today I went to return something to Old Navy and remembered that I was right by a Goodwill thrift store that I had just discovered this summer. The first time I went in there were no treasures to be found. On a whim today I thought I would just run in and scope things out. I was quite excited with what I found!!

Look at this adorable 26 piece set of vintage dishes that I bought for a mere $18! I've mentioned my love for dishes before and I just couldn't resist this colorful and unique breakfast/dessert set. It came with 6 dessert plates, 8 cups and saucers, the creamer, the sugar bowl and the coffee/tea pot, AND (giddy excitement) a cake plate!!

I love the bright fun colors and vintage appeal!

The cups are an interesting shape for sure. The pattern is called Millefleur from the Avant-Garde Collection (made in Japan). Know anything about these? I haven't seen them anywhere online.

OH MY GOODNESS!!! I love love love those dishes! The cups by themselves are luring me into a hot chocolate mood! ummm - they are on my Christmas list already! :) And the cake plate (giggle) is adorable. Good job Gracie! Now all you gotta do is invite me down for tea and something good on the cake plate!

All for $18?! Wow, you snagged a great deal, and they're so cute!

To me it says coffee set. In Europe the tea pots are squat and the porcelain coffee pots are tall and straight like this one is! The cups would be perfect for a latte.

Wow, I am just pouring over your pictures . . . these are adorable!

I just love how well they display on that shelf too--the green polka dots: SO CUTE!

Your mom would be so proud of your love of china (and good deals!) You deserve a little happy, I'm so glad you "rescued" this for good use!

I only wish I'd beaten you to the Goodwill! How scrumptious and yummy are those dishes!?
