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.
Until next time, happy hunting!
