[ charming china ]

YARD SALE time is just around the corner and I can't wait to hunt around for vintage plates and china. I love going thrifting too but am having a harder time finding good pieces - likely because there are a lot of other people out there scouring through the stores for the same things I am! Aren't these pretty displays? The soft colours and little florals are so charming.

I never seem to have luck at yard sales...I think I need to be more persistent. Great images, esp. like the glass on the top shelf in the first one.

They are beautiful, aren't they? Good luck with your treasure hunt for them!

Oh, yes, gorgeous little china pieces! I think that people are spending less these days and EVERYONE is looking for a bargain due to the economy, so garage sales, thrift stores, etc. are more picked over. Also, I think people aren't buying new stuff and just holding on to what they've got. Boo! We need to get out of this crazy financial mess! I want to go shopping!

I love that coffee pot in the last photo. I agree that there doesn't seem to be as many things to hunt down these days as it is all the trend at the moment to own vintage things. I for one never thought I'd be interested in vintage pieces but my tastes have definitely changed.
