We went for a ride out to Stayner on Saturday afternoon, to visit my favourite thrift store. The lady is very helpful in there and even though I only got this platter this time, she hunted out a pile of other stuff in the back room for me to look at. The platter is Snowhite Regency by Johnson Brothers and I paid $3 for it, so was happy with that. I was trying to find this exact pattern on the internet, as it was also made without the pattern as well.
We then went to this "Antique Store," where I have bought from before and I picked up this pair of cups, saucers and side plates. They cost me $3 per set, which I thought was high, but never mind. It seems to be like a Corningware/Corelle type of product, and not fine china, but sometimes you have to take what you can find!!
This is my favourite set so far and again I paid $3 for it and it is Moyatt Staffordshire "Medici." I think it is the Turquoise colour? She has more pieces of this and I think I will go back next week to see what I have to pay for the platter she had. The longer I was in the store, the more friendlier she got. I think this is stunning:
This last set is Blue Bow by Crown Staffordshire and is very pretty as well. She would only sell me the one set at $3 despite there being more.
I love going to these stores to see what I can spot. The platters are not to give away, I will keep most of them for myself, so I will only buy what I truly like.
