Thrift Share Monday

This will be my first link up with Apron Thrift Girl for Thrift Share Monday.  I went to the thrift store THREE times last week, so I have some good stuff to share.

Those of you who thrift in northwest Arkansas are familiar with Potter's House Thrift Store.  It's big, it's packed, and the best part is their rotating pricing system.  By lowering the price of an item each week after the first two, they really move the merchandise along.  And if you see something you like, but don't like the price, you can take your chances on getting it at a later date for less.  Almost any item left after four weeks is fifty cents.

I'm not going to show everything I got, because it's late, I'm tired, and I haven't photographed all of it.  Here is the highlight, though.

Franciscan Tulip Time

A beautiful set of Franciscan serving pieces in the Tulip Time pattern.  These are so beautiful.  The teapot and sugar bowl have repairs, but the other pieces are in excellent condition.  I love these colors, but I am trying to limit the things I keep to a few patterns that I really love, and pottery like this is not high on the list (although this has a marvelous buttery soft surface).  This will either be sold to buy what I want, or traded locally.

Pop over to Apron Thrift Girl and check out more thrifty goodness.

ETA:  I just discovered Me and My Shadow and Magpie Monday, so I'm linking there as well.


  1. Thanks so much for linking up!

    Such a beautiful shade of turquoise on that design. I've not heard of Franciscan before but it reminds me of 70's Denby.

    Can't wait to see what else you got!

  2. Those serving pieces are absolutely gorgeous. I have never seen that design before, but it is just the kind of thing I like.

  3. They are really pretty!

  4. Oh, I would have snatched those up, too - to resell! Like you, I just don't have the room for multiple sets of dishes!

  5. The set is beautiful!!! Well done!
