The other day I decided to stop by at one of the thrift stores I like to go in. It is a hit and miss most of the time. I can find something awesome there one week then I will not find something for a couple of months. I went in the other day and found one Fire King plate and I was super excited. Then a little old woman who worked there came up to me and asked if I liked "those dishes" and appreciated them. It was a cute funny little moment. I of course said yes and she showed me the mother load.
I love Fire King dishes! It is hard not to be drawn to the Jadeite dishes. But Jadeite has been priced ridiculously high now. I rarely find some that is priced well. So I have been collecting the white pieces and the Philbe Sapphire Blue dishes. I was so happy to find these dishes. The Philbe pattern is one of the oldest that Fire King made. I got the whole load of them for $30. I saw the set of the same bowls for $75 on etsy. I am so excited. I love the pattern.
What good finds have you had lately?
P.S. Steve placed a bid on a house on Friday. It is kinda driving me nuts though. It is a short sale so I do not know when we will find out if they except the bid. But wish us luck!
