Scavenging report--

Went thrift-store hopping with Whines today, doing some of the south stores that we don't get to very often--including one that I hadn't been to in probably three years down on Stassney near I-35.

Found some fun stuff, but the highlight of the trip was a set of the same dishes my family had when I was an early teenager. We'd slowly lost the set due to having two teens in the house--they were very seventies brown crockery with orangey-yellowy-brown floral patterns, not great, but I have a huge amount of nostalgia for them. Anyway, this was a big crate of those dishes--a nearly complete set! It had between six and eight large saucers, plates, coffee mug and small saucer sets (mom didn't even REMEMBER the coffee mugs). The only thing it was missing was the bowls--it had one of them, so now I have two of the extra-large four-cup or so bowls. I had a handful of plates and saucers and a bowl that I'd accumulated piecemeal over the last year, but this was a real treasure trove--for only $8!
