I'm linking this up for Tablescape Thursday...
On Black Friday I went into a Goodwill in Chattanooga, TN. I was there when it opened and walked in looking for Christmas decorations. I saw this large pile of dishes and went straight to them. I was so excited I almost could not pick up all 52 pieces of this fabulous dinnerware. I loaded them into my buggy and quivering with excitement checked out.
The dishes are Poppytrail-Metlox made in Calif, and the pattern is California Strawberry!
I had to set a table with these lovlies and it was a perfect after Thanksgiving lets enjoy leftovers before Christmas tablescape.
The set has so many serving pieces and they are in fantastic shape!
Teapot, sugar and creamer. The strawberry's on top are just too cute.
This covered dish is one of my favorites!
Two oval platters and a small round serving plate were also included.
There were some plates and bowls missing, but I got a complete set of 4 place settings in addition to all the serving pieces. I looked on line and these were produced in 1961 by Metlox Potteries. The best part of all, the price. $29.99!! That's right! I looked at china replacements on line and one of the serving pieces would cost as much as my whole set.
This is one of the best deals I have ever found at a Thrift Shop. It was a Good Friday for me! I love these dishes and will use them year round. This is an early Christmas present to myself!
Thanks for stopping by to look at my fabulous find!
