But Palmolive does have a small little debut in this Ta-Dah Tuesday post. On Saturday I went garage saling. Only 6 sales to go to because it was the last weekend in August. I did not find one thing (This is starting to become a trend, I suppose the season has come to a end. I will try one last time this Weekend.) I usually end our Saturday routine with a couple thrift shops.
Next stop Salvation Army, Which is where I found a half bottle of Palmolive for 0.29 cents and now I can have soft hands and be the Envy of the women in my neighborhood.
Okay I am kidding I already had the Palmolive. What I found was these Johnson Bros dishes!!!
Aren't they GROOVY? Plates with flowers on them!! Who doesn't love to eat off of a flower plate?
The thing is .... it wasn't just a couple of dishes...
It was more like a Dish set
I don't remember the last time I hand washed so many dishes. *Thank you Palmolive*
I filled the drain rack 4 times
The set was on the bottom shelf. It has 56 pieces. I only found a handful of flaws.
I had to have it as soon as I seen it. But I was worried what the Mr. would say... Had he said no I would not have listened... NOPE not this time. Thank God he knew I meant serious business!
The set was labeled $7.50
The lovely Lady working the till decided she only wanted to charge us $5
*What a Gem she is*
I am over the moon..... especially when I seen a replacement salad plate priced at $9
After a couple hours of research I found out there is a butter dish and that I hope I eventually find. The creamer is another item I will search for as the jug I do have is the gravy boat. I imagine someone was clumsy and knocked the creamer off the counter.
This set should last me a good long time. Sadly WAY in the future my future children probably won't come across their childhood dishes in a thrift store and say
"These were the dishes I had when I was little, as often as I do."
My childhood dishware
We had 1 set of each.
And my Grandma had these!
Whenever I see any of these dishes at a Flea Market, Garage sale or Thrift shop.... I instantly reminisce on my childhood. I remember eating my cereal at the kitchen table in a swivel vinyl kitchen chair or standing on my tippy toes at Grandmas trying to get a mug so I could have some of my Grandpa's Ginger ale he always kept in the fridge.
You would probably never think dishes could impact someones life... But if you REALLY think about it. They are something you use daily.... They are used for MANY of lifes occasions and celebrations. They show up in family pictures and obviously are remembered in some peoples minds...
So for goodness sakes MAKE SURE you love your dishware!!
And thanks for reading about my Ta-dah.
