These are some of my friend Melinda’s thrift store and garage sale purchases. I am in love with the red dish. Don’t you just love the shape? And it gets better because it comes with a cover.

Melinda was kind enough to give me the blue and white crochet runner.

We aren’t sure what the stand (below) was designed for…the side drops down to open.

I love the dish. It is modern and retro at the same time!

Have a happy Tuesday!

I love the shape of that dish. We had lunch where all the dishes had unusual shapes, it was so much fun.

Gosh! You have so much we had in our shops. It is hard to find these 'finds' out this way reasonably.

Great find. Enjoy your blog. TTFN ~ Marydon
