Thrifting and Shopping In Northern California
During my visit to Northern California, deciding on where to go shopping and trying to fit in all the places we love to look for deals became a focal point of interest for Katrina and I after Avery's adorable 1st Birthday party. We decided to pop in Goodwill (Sunday) and we were not disappointed. Katrina found some long sought after Pyrex bowls and I found a piece I have wanted for ages.... a classic Soup Tureen.
Here are some images of pieces I have checked pricing on but could never commit to purchase-
Here is what I found at Goodwill for a mere 14.99! I couldn't believe my good fortune! This is just like a tureen I saw in House Beautiful that I could not afford!! I love the scalloped detail and the delicate presentation of the tureen.
(please excuse the dusty secretary, I am pleased to say I have worked up the nerve to paint it and will be done soon)
I was so thrilled to find both pieces, I literally squealed when I saw the tureen sitting on the shelf, Katrina and I both found long sought after items for our collections.
I saw these precious little gems almost right beside my tureen while in Goodwill. These will be a cute compliment to my buffet when I have my brunch.
