I have an addiction...

I do.  I do.   I am addicted to junking.  I stop at every Goodwill in town (4 of them) and at least 2 of the 4 ARC Thrift Stores at least once per month.  I chase garage sale signs.  You would laugh if you could hear the goings on inside my head!   I try to resist and just tell myself I have PLENTY of Stuff at home and that I should Go shop in my own Garage already!   Well today Goodwill won!   At first I wasn't finding anything and I thought that was okay.  Until I spotted these:

Universal Ballerina Rose Plates.  There are four dinner size plates.  I got all excited and begin searching through all of the dishes as I didn't want to miss one piece.  I thought what if I find a matching cup & saucer!  I did not.  Here is the stamp on the back of these plates: 

I would have been happy to just bring home one of them!  They are so pretty!

While looking for more of the Rose plates I found these two Vintage French Arcoroc Pink Glass plates.  I was happy with my Goodwill finds, but drove away feeling like I need to work on this "addiction."   Next time I'll shop in my own Garage!

  1. Hi Jocelyne,
    We don't have a lot of thrift stores here but during the spring and summer months, there are garage sales everywhere. I'm glad you found those pretty Ballerina plates and what can I say? I love your French pink glass plates! Good job! Thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day.

    Autumn blessings,

  2. Hi Jocelyne:
    Glad you found some good stuff. There is a lady in - I think Washington but not sure who finds incredible things at her Goodwill. I can't even believe the teapots, etc she finds. Her blog is Karen's cottage and castle. Check out what she finds. I mostly buy clothes and tins at the Ark. So glad you shared your goodies!

  3. The first step to recovery is admitting that you have a problem, Jocelyne. Perhaps we should start an online support group for our thrifting addiction. Hee!

  4. Dear Jocelynn:
    Thanks for your sweet comments. I apologize if I already told you but I own the King and Queen (1939) cup and saucer from your booth! Thanks for being a customer and friend! God Bless!
