Bargains in Blue and White

I like my covered dishes and they always catch my eye when I’m out thrifting. Week before last I stopped in to one of my local thrift shops and quickly spotted this blue and white covered dish. I took it down and was surprised to see the price – all of $2.00

Than I saw that it has a small chip right on the inside lip of the dish, just where the cover rests. The piece was rattling around in the bottom.

I decided it would make a good display piece or floral container or storage bin of some sort.. and ehh…I have plenty of serving dishes suitable for table service!

A couple days later I was in the shop again and saw three matching blue and white pieces, unpriced. Upon inquiry I was told $3.00 for the set. Included is a small teapot and lid, sugar and lid and creamer. The sugar has a small chip to the inside, on the edge where the lid rests.

So now I have a charming blue and white suite for display.

With the addition of a blue and white French style jug by Godinger (found at TX Maxx) and a couple navy bound books, and two covered pumpkins,
I have a nice shabby chic fall tabletop vignette for a corner of the bedroom.
