I try to pay attention to what my friends like and collect just in case I find it at my favorite thrift store. Well, I found these at the Goodwill. My friend was surprised I remembered her pattern name.
They are Noritake in the Gloria pattern. I am on the look out for Trojan which is her mother's pattern. I purchase five plates for $4.99. We looked them up on Replacements.com and they were $17.99 each.
I found some Fiesta which has become rare here.
The white plate under the Scarlet salad plates is HLC Gothic. I kept it since it is by the same maker as Fiesta. I believe that the plates to the right are Fire King. Whatever they are I liked them. This was all in bag with some other plates I didn't keep for $1.99.
The Fiesta bowls in Cobalt and Rose above were also found at the Goodwill. They were $1.99 for both.
Since I started this post a while back, I have to add that this weekend (10/15/11) I found another friend a lot of her dishes. They are Sango "The Sweetshop Shop". I found the whole crate for $34.99!! It has 9 cups, 12 dinner plates, 12 salad plates and 10 rim soup bowls. I'm still on the look out for some of the serving pieces.
I had fun finding dishes for myself and my friends.
I plan to link up with Linda @ Coastal Charm. Be sure to view everyones thrifty finds.
