Thrift Store Easter Table Setting

DSC_1098 A few months ago,  I was at a thrift store and found some cute pink dishes.   Pink plates, cups and saucers with bunnies on them.    I walked out of the store without buying them. 

On a practical level, pink bunny plates don’t go with anything I own.   Nor do I ever use a “cup and saucer” at my house.  Plus the fact that are pink and have a bunny on them makes them very occasion specific.    Obviously, not practical.    

I just couldn’t stop thinking about how darn cute they were.  Within a half hour, I was back at the store purchasing pink bunny plates, cups and saucers. 


I looked this pattern up on line and found that they are about three times what I paid for them on a popular replacement site.    That made me feel better about my purchase.   

DSC_1108Easter was the obvious occasion to bring out these dishes.   They looked just as cute as I thought they would when the table was set. DSC_1113

I got the white decorative bunnies on the table at another thrift store.   It was the cutest Easter table ever.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love shopping at thrift stores.   You can find things you don’t really need with prices low enough that you buy them anyway.
