Good Score! is a weekly feature here at Red House West highlighting our readers’ secondhand finds. If you scored a great bargain at a thrift store, found a treasure on the side of the road, or discovered a one-of-a-kind gem at a yard sale, we’d love to hear about it! Please send a picture and a brief description of what, where and how much to firstname.lastname@example.org and each Friday we’ll share a couple of highlights.
Thanks so much to everyone who submitted a Good Score this week! Some real gems landed in our email inbox, so let’s get started, shall we?
We found these Fire King “delphite blue” party dishes at Cone Ball Antiques in Eugene, OR. That Saturday morning they held a $1-$5 sale to celebrate the opening of the Saturday Market. These two milk glass plates from the late 50’s were marked $1.00. Turns out, they fit right into our dining room decor, the blue offsetting the orange walls and the gold rim matching our tableware and chandelier very nicely. We put them to the test and loved them so much we found more on Ebay–also very reasonably priced. A great score not only for the price, but because we discovered one of the most elusive pieces to our dining room puzzle. -Tiffany
Love these!! I will definitely be sending in some thrift store finds!!
What fun to see everyone’s “treasures.” I especially like the Charles and Diana tin—both for the memories of Charles & Diana’s fabulous wedding and Katy’s cookies. Thanks Mera and Katie—love your blog!
Great combination of finds. I could picture using every one of them. Ah – Charles and Diana – those were the days. Are those fish friends of your fish Katie? They look like they’d be happy together.
