Good, Goodwill Dishes

Hi Friends!
Lot's of projects I want to get into
my time has been divided in too many places.
Sound familiar?

Thought I'd start something today but, first the Goodwill store was calling my name.
So off I went.
I even got a kick out of their bags;
Did you know that shopping at Goodwill helps people earn a living, improves their lives and
 strengthens families and your community.
It can be an amazing store.
Want to see what I found?
These cute, old Taylor Smith Taylor dishes from 1940.
I really love the colors red, blue and yellow on a creamy background.

I found 6 dinner plates,6 bread plates, 6 bowls, veggie bowl w/ under plate,
gravy boat and small under plate and a sugar bowl and lid.
Not one chip can you believe it? After 70 years!

All for a grand total of $20.
Not bad. 
And when I was leaving the sweet girl said "thank you for supporting our mission."
So, not only do I feel good about what I purchased,
I feel good for possibly helping someone else too!
Dinner will be extra yummy on these Good, Goodwill dishes tonight.
Thanks for stopping by! 
See you next time!  


  1. Wow, what a fantastic find! I'm a little envious...okay...a lot envious. ;-) These are beautiful!

  2. What a great find and so many pieces without chips. Very pretty!

  3. I love GW! I go there almost every week. I'm getting to know the employees quite well. Great find! No chips?? Amazing.

  4. I L-O-V-E those plates! Beautiful design...don't think I've seen anything like them! Found you thru Nifty Thrifty Tusdays! Glad to "meet" you! Come see my 1930's Census Red Bird Art! (I am #97!)~Vicky

  5. Beautiful pattern and awesome $20 price...thanks to GW! Happy NNT!


  6. Good for you...what a deal! The dishes are awesome. Thanks for your visit and the cute comment you left. I felt exactly the same way.

  7. Those dishes are so very sweet. You are so fortunate to have a "good" Goodwill. At our GW those dishes would have been at least $50. They think they are an antique store around here. Prices have really gone up. Glad to know there are still real Goodwill stores out there,

  8. I LOVE that pattern! I have one old crazed saucer in that pattern that I use under a chunky bar of French soap by my ktchen sink- and it makes me smile. Lucky you!

  9. Those are just so pretty! I visit Goodwill almost weekly!

  10. Donna just read some of you older posts and I really enjoy your blog and have become a new follower. I am having several giveaways on my blog leading up to my 60th birthday and I hope will stop by if you have time.
