Pretty pieces at pretty prices...

Try saying that three times....I know you tried it. I did :) I just wanted to share some goodies I found last week while thrifting. I normally check out our only local thrift store in Jasper and the Goodwill that's about 15 minutes south of our town. Our local thrift store has GREAT prices as you will see below. Goodwill seems to have gone up on their prices, but you can still get a great deal here and there.

These are the goodies I found.
I am going to list the items and their prices.

Purchased at Goodwill:
"WELCOME" sign with hooks: $3.93
Stand with oval chalkboard: $1.91

Purchased at Jasper Thrift Store:
Ball Jars: 2 @ .50 cents each
Woven wood tray: .50
Vintage Pyrex Bowl: $1.00
Cherry Pie Plate: $1.00
Ironstone Saucers: 7 Saucers for $1.50
Ironstone cups (there are 6, but only one in the picture): .25 each
Ironstone Dinner Plate: .25
Cream colored letter holder: $3.00

The plate in the picture above is my absolute favorite ironstone pattern. I think it is Mccoy, but I'm not sure. If anyone knows who makes this pattern and what the name of the pattern is...I would love to know.

Thanks for visiting, have a lovely day.


Also, check out the link on the side bar to the fairfieldhouse for a really neat postcard exchange.


  1. Great finds! The white dishes would have to be my favourites, both the teacups/saucers and the plate. Our thrift prices are much higher and I have yet to find ironstone or plain white dishes. I'm still looking though.

  2. WOW, you really did great! I love the ironstone too.

  3. Billie,

    I love the last plate you have pictured. I can't believe you got it for twenty cents! I have a growing ironstone collection. Who can resist white?


  4. I adore ironstone! And the white pieces were a find! Lucky Lucky!!!

  5. Hi I like this blog and the nice pictures! I came back soon! Have a nice summer! Hugs Nina

  6. Billie,
