Happy Hoarder's House Sale...

The other day I went to a house sale that was PACKED with just about anything you can think of. Actually, it was even too overwhelming for me. But I managed to grab some wonderful goodies and got yet another fantastic deal on something I've been looking for for quite some time.

Since I'm into collecting copper I was able to find a few pieces to add to my copper stash.

Like this cute candle stick holder.

Some wee molds.

And this awesome old Revereware mixing bowl.
(My reflection is giving you a thumbs up)

Then, tucked away in the back of the old attic was a box of what I've been looking for! At first I wasn't sure, so I reached over and grabbed a piece. Sure enough it was a box of Pfaltzgraff White Heritage dishes! I've been looking for more pieces to add to the set I have from my parents.

Needless to say, I jumped on the box like Daffy Duck did when he saw the pearl.

Even better, this setting for EIGHT was an older set (made in the U.S.A.) and in mint condition! The three boxes contained dinner plates, salad plates, cereal bowls, soup bowls, cups/saucers, salt & pepper shakers, gravy boat, a creamer/sugar bowl and veggie bowl. All for... Ready for this??
35 bucks!

These classic white dishes are perfect for that country/farmhouse/cottage look. I remember as a kid back in the 70's how excited my mom was when she got her set. I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Also in the boxes were these two pretty (made in Japan) vintage sugar bowls. Heck I no longer consume table sugar but I think I'm going to start collecting pretty, white sugar bowls.
The one is rather large for a sugar bowl. But it has the little opening in the lid like a sugar bowl. Who knows??

After I left that place I thought to myself... The next time my sweet hubs complains about too much stuff in the ol' Countryfolk homestead, I will remind him of the "happy hoarder's house" and tell him to put a sock in it. ((giggle))

Happy Saturday, all!!

Thanks, Gayle! I might head back tomorrow for the last day and see if there's any goodies left. Shhh... But we'll keep that between you and me. ((hee hee))

Karin, the larger "sugar bowl" might be a gravy boat? Wonderful things you have found and you always find the bargains, :)

Countryfolk Keepsakes said...

Judi I thought a gravy boat, too. :> ) But it doesn't have a spout like gravy boats. Unless they made some not to pour. I can't find anything online about it's markings either. I'm guessing it's from the 40's or 50's? I really have no idea. But it sure is pretty. ♥

Thank you, Judi!! Yes, it's probably a sauce boat with lid and underplate! All those dishes are beautiful, aren't they? How I love white dishes. ♥
I just realized the little glass ladle I found in the bottom of one of the boxes is the ladle that goes with it. Woo hoo!

Judi Hunziker said...

Your "sauce bowl" is made by Royal Crownford, I just googled it:

It is very similar but I don't believe it's the same. There is an old paper label on the bottom of mine that reads, "Viking Hand Made. Made in Japan." Mine's probably a Japanese knock off of the genuine stuff.
