We frequent a thrift store in our neighborhood. ( its within walking distance).This past week we learned they are going out of business. Everything was marked half price. I had been looking at these dishes for a long time. They were all stacked in a milk crate...not lovingly wrapped as they should have been! I love the pattern but I do not NEED dishes. I just love them. We researched the pattern and discovered that these dishes were quite valuable. I paid 20 dollars for them. They are worth so much more. But its not the worth. They are beautiful and a pleasure to enjoy and use. DD2 has already requested them for her hope chest.
