I don't often find much at this particular store -- a plate every now and again. They have a special 'antique' section where they jack up the price of items, sometimes even pricier than the actual antique store next door. (There is a set of Friendship bowls that I'm currently coveting for $65...)
I did however find my 501 Butterfly Gold fridge dish there several months ago... so I continue to check back every now and again, just in case.
Sometimes, like on the day I found the fridge dish, I hit the jackpot.
Lo and behold, a green wheat space saver (sans cradle) for $8.50.
I was lamenting my mistake in passing up a white snowflake on charcoal space saver a while back -- it had been in a showcase for over a month and when I finally decided I liked it enough to get it, it was gone. I think it was meant to be, though, since I found this one instead, even cheaper.
The color really is gorgeous -- it's hard to see how brilliant it is in the photos. It has a few very tiny scratches on it... and one miniscule chip on the inside of the lid. It also had some black gunk caked on the sides... but a little Bar Keeper's Friend and this piece looks nearly new.
What did you all find this weekend?
