French Farmhouse Style: Friday's Find #188


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! Yard sale season is here and oh, how I love a good yard sale! It was a rainy day and truth be told, if it wasn't for a prescheduled appointment, I probably would have stayed indoors but I'm so glad I was out and saw this sale! Today's features are French farmhouse style and all from the same yard sale...

It was the perfect yard sale for a professed dishaholic like me and everything was priced to sell!  First, is this large round Federalist ironstone platter. I don't come across ironstone as often as other dishware, so I was happy to find it. It's over 12" in diameter and has the typical crazing which I don't mind a bit. It's such a versatile piece--I can see it used tray style for a charming vignette or on an easel displayed on its own.

Next, a mismatched pair of salt and pepper shakers that I'll repurpose soon.

This lovely piece is handmade with the artisan's name, Estil and the date, '57 hand marked on the bottom. I adore the ornate edging.

I love this delicate floral Limoges bowl and it's right at home in my collection.

Last, another pretty French piece, this one is Haviland.

Would you believe I only paid $4 for all of these gorgeous finds? I hope I've inspired you to scour yard sales for vintage collectibles. Check out the top things I hunt for at yard sales here.

  3. Looks like you and I bought similar stuff this week. Being a self-described "dishaholic" can you tell me how the market for Buffalo China is? I acquired quite a bit of it this past weekend and I have no idea if it's worth trying to sell!

  7. It's still a bit nippy in the midwest for yard sales, but soon I hope! You know I love ironstone and I would have grabbed that plate! My mother's china was Haviland and I loved it (my older sister got it, oh well:)) Have a greatweekend! xo Kathleen Our Hopeful Home

  9. I just took my doggy to the vet and saw a yard sale sign but didn't think she would be a good shopper. So I had to pass it up. So the yard sale season is on here in GA too. Yea!
