Gleaning the Vendors

  Today   after the sun  came out and  melted and  dried up the snow,   I  felt  I needed  a    bit of consignment shopping  .. I just  felt  there was something   out there with my name on it....    and I  wasnt  disappointed... I  love  exploring all the vendors, gleaning   the   offerings  for  just the right treasures....
 My favrite   shop is  Buy the Season!
 This is the  back room....    barely heated   but always worth a  stroll through!!!!  I  bought my  favorite cloche  in there...

I found   this   beautiful  Wood and Son's  English  pottery   plate  for  $3.50.

 As you  may glimpse over on the wall  I love to collect  various    transferware patterns and mix and match  on  table scapes....  I have a red, blue, and black collection. I  have  very  few serving pieces in blue and  I   loved this  Mason   Ironstone  Blue and White  by  Crabtree Evelyn of London for  $6.25.
   I  have been looking for  a  blue and  white  planter for some time...   I  dont know the maker of this   but for  9 dollars  I was   ecstatic!
 On one of the  clearance tables I found this   fabulous  Villeroy Boch  plate...  Made in Luxenbourg...   I thought it    would  be gorgoeus  as a  wall plate  when  I am serving  my black and whites!!!
 with  and without a flash...   I love castles and this one   is magnificent!
 I paid $8   but   I  couldnt find   a comparable price online....
  Last, but certainly not least, I found this   wonderful   springy cup and saucer....
 Staffordshire Bouquet by Johnson  Brothers... of  England...   I  thought  Id  enjoy my springtime   morning  coffee and tea  in this spritely  cup, especially at only $5.00 for the  pair.

Altogether I spent $31.50   but I daresay I saved  an equal amount  if Id  purchased  these treasures   in any other  way!
