I love to rummage through the antique malls and if time allows, I will make a list and come back another time to collect a few treasures from the past. A '24 hour rule' is a good one for me to decrease impulse buying!
On this trip to Sweeten Creek, I threw that plan out the window.
On my second day to Sweeten Creek Antiques, I gathered the few little things that I went back to get and as I was leaving the store, I noticed these plates on a bottom shelf of an old armoire. I saw that the sticker read $30. I kept looking, thinking it was just for the plates...no other sticker.
I flipped the plate over and saw that it was beautiful Staffordshire Ironstone.
The whole stack for $30?! It just couldn't be! Here is the best surprise of all...when I took it to the counter...it was 25% off...I got all 38 pieces for $22.50.
I included the receipt, because I hardly believe it myself! For the life of me, I can't figure out why she just didn't sell these on e-bay. I went on e-bay and found three saucers, just the saucers, no cups for $11. This impulse purchase was a good one!
I couldn't find much on the web about these plates. I will have to check the Library on English Ironstone. There are no chips or cracks, but some crackle appearance inside the coffee cups. If you have any info on this ironstone, please share! Thanks!
