Every once in awhile each one of us has a lucky day and today was my day! I had a few minutes before a meeting so I ran into a local thrift store that I had not been to in a while. I have a normal route that I take through the store and the dishes and glassware are near the end. I was thrilled beyond belief to find this set of Currier and Ives dishes and salad plates! You see growing up my Grandma Mursch and Great Aunt Marion both had a set of these dishes. After my Aunt passed away I was given her set, but it is quickly dimishing as the dishes chip and crack from 60+ years of use. I have so many happy memories of family gatherings for every occasion you could imagine that surround these plates! So I grabbed them up before anybody else could and was able to walk out of the store with 10 dinner plates and 4 salad plates for a mere $7.30! What??!! I am one happy girl today!!!
