Didn’t need them BUT couldn’t resist🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️

I went to a estate sale in search of a new kitchen table or a small hutch.

 

Well, I absolutely love dishes ...I sold my Pfaltzgraff Winterberry set of 12 when I downsized,but, have missed "them".

 

At the sale today this gentlemen had about 80 pieces (8 place settings w/mugs) -- and the completer stuff.

 

He said "wife died 6 years ago and they've been in boxes in attic.

 

Score:  I bought all of them for $65 but then realized he didn't have the 10" dinner plates in the lot.  Called him he said "He'd look for them..."

 

He called me tonight -- found 💃💃 picking them up tomorrow ..

 

Now, hopefully I have as much luck as I put on yard sale and nextdoor my temptations, some furniture, and my christmas decor/dishes.  No takers in a week I'll mark them -- FREE🙂🙂

I also am a dish junkie.  I happened upon a set of Winterberry at a local St. Vincen'ts and unfortunately DH was with me.  He already thinks I have too many sets so I had to leave them.  Sigh.

Lucky you to have the room to store your new dishware.

shhhhhh I "snuck" them in the house, into the dishwasher around 1:00 am last night because I DON'T HAVE THE ROOM EITHER!!!

 

I'm hoping to sell fast my 12 place setting of Christmas everyday -- I just love Winterberry therefore, even if I have to store under bed storage -- I just had to have it.

 

YIKES...addictions...lol
