Much Love for the Economy Shop.

After reader Traci wrote and taunted me with news of vintage fabric she saw at theĀ Economy Shop a couple of weeks ago, I decided I needed to check in there again, which I did last Saturday. I still didn’t make it there very early — there is a perpetual war between my need-to-sleep-late self and my need-to-get-the-best-stuff self every Saturday — but I got a few great finds. And you know what? I really dig the VIBE of the Economy Shop. The people that work there are SO SWEET.

I got a set of six of these plates — two in each color. They’re small — about four inches in diameter. I have PLANS for them — PLANS, I tell you! I know that this is all over the blogs, and a little overdone and therefore a little cheesy, but I’m going to use milk glass candlesticks to make them into cake plates. TO WIT:


I also got this for $5:

Economy Shop rocks! Shown in its new natural habitat on the left, amongst my white matte pottery collection, and on the right, a close-up view. It’s Abingdon, and one of the handles has a small crack that doesn’t go all the way through. Two of the women working the sale made sure I noticed the flaw before they took my money! I love them! Traci, thanks for motivating me to give it another try!

Shannon The cake plate idea is genius! You are going to sell those immediately when you put them in your booth!
