How nice it is to travel to a larger metropolitan area
with many thrift stores that are huge AND open Sundays.
I've about exhausted thepossibilities at smaller local ones
with nearly weekly trips. Want to see what I found?
How hard is it to find kitchenware that matches?
There is enough here for me to keep some and sell some.
The Glasbake milk glass with green daisies matches my kitchen.
Loads of mixing/casserole bowls, a pie pan,
covered dish and two divided vegetable dishes.
I have a thing for diner mugs but usually only find singles.
Two more sets that match my kitchen, lol.
The lighter-weight ones on the left aren't marked.
The heavy ones have a buffalo logo and "China USA."
My mom is going to have to teach me how to make
her homemade baked beans when she gets back from Florida.
This bean pot says"Mar-Crest Oven-Proof Stoneware, U.S.A."
It is the daisy and dot pattern and in mint condition.
Before Kids (B.K.), I was a graphic designer who dabbled in photography and crafts. Now, as the mom of four boys, most of my creative time is devoted to photography and crafts. I especially like creative upcycling of vintage fabrics, household items and architectural salvage, most of which I find while thrifting. I still dabble in graphic design – it is so much easier and much more fun than in the old days of paste-up and the early Macs.
