Sweet Wheat!

 

I was not planning on doing a post today. But sometimes plans change.  Yes, I am very flexible with my schedule. I just got home from running errands and I couldn’t wait to share what I found.

SWEET WHEAT dishes.

While out I decided to swing by the D.I.

These dishes (all but the S&P shakers which I bought for $1 at a yard sale) were in the collectibles case.

Now, things in the collectibles are always priced a bit higher.

The set of four:  Plate, bowl, teacup and saucer were $5. I didn’t think that was too bad.

I knew that they were not the same wheat pattern as my other collection.

But I sure thought they were cute. 

This is what it says on the bottom.

Anyone familiar with this?  Autumn gold, how appropriate.  You’d a thought I had struck GOLD when I saw them.

In case you missed the post I did on my other wheat dishes, here’s a glimpse.

What do you think?  Would you have bought the D.I. set?

Just gotta say, “There’s GOLD in them thar thrift stores!”

Hi Jann:

Absolutely beautiful and YES I would have bought them :)

I shipped your goodies Parcel Post (slower method) and yes, it can take that long. I am here at the Jersey Shore and in the past, it has taken forever to get things across the country. Let me know as soon as you get it OK? Thanks!

Jann, your wheat dishes are in my Homer Laughlin reference book. It says the pattern was probably distributed as a grocery store promtional item! You made a great find!!! I'm your newest follower!!!

Your wheat dishes are great but I'd probably want to make a teacup birdfeeder out of the teacup. Of your "other dishes" I am loving the pitcher and the white trays. Great stuff there!

Thank you very much for linking up to our first ever thrifty link up at Cap Creations. Love having you and love some of the ideas I'm seeing around here!
