Thrifting with a toddler and a baby is the worst kind of thrifting. Carrying one and keeping the other out of clothing racks while rifling through boxes is a dangerous business. Needless to say it doesn’t happen very often. But one day at a small-town thrift store, the owner said, “And you do know about our basement.” What. I’ve been there almost a dozen times and no one told me about their basement clear on the other side of an adjacent business. Probably because of the two children thing.
I dragged them along with me and thankfully found a cardboard box marked “old dishes.” Old dishes indeed.
Inside was this fun pattern called “Blue Clarion” by Taylor Smith & Taylor. While I can’t find any information about this pattern anywhere, that’s ok because for six place settings, a large bowl and large platter the price rang up as $7.
