Recent & Exciting Finds

I went up north with my family earlier this week to a town called Lewiston. While there was nothing around for miles, I did manage to find an antique store that I didn't expect much from. I went with my Mom, two aunts and my grandma (who is almost 85 and quite a trip!). This store was much larger than I expected! Everything was displayed by color and I had a blast. It was hard not to get out of control with buying and I only got a few things, but boy I am excited about them! Check out this set I found! MacBeth Evans Monax Bordette set of dinner plates, bread plates and saucers in pink blue green and yellow!

Aren't they gorgeous? All the colors are so vibrant and all the plates are in such good condition! If only I had the cups to complete the set! I would never have found these around here, I do have the platter to this set in my etsy shop and that was such a find! I'll have this set up on etsy soon, so keep your eyes open for it!

I also found some plates of one of my all time favorite patterns. The pastel stripe petalware also by MacBeth Evans. Another rare style to find, and I got three plates in the past two days! Excited! They'll also be on my etsy shop soon.

I'll have to post soon to show teh new additions to my corner cabinet and of some other things... for example, today I found the last New Dot Pyrex bowl to finish my set, the big one with green dots! For only $18, I mean what a find!
