Pretty Plates...For .25 Cents??

Don't you just love a good garage sale??

You know, the kind where you spy something you love - and it's next to free?
Well, I thought all the garage sales were over for the season. 

Then a friend tipped me about one near her home. I'm so glad I stopped by!
Due to my steadfast love for delicately trimmed plates, I couldn't leave these behind. There were 6 plates, 2 bowls and the little gravy dish. (Wish I had a full set!)
How much were they? 

Oh...

...Just .25 cents each. 

With widened eyes, I started stacking them on my hand.
If I ever decide to modify my plate wall in my dining area, I will have the perfect plates to do so.
And THAT'S why you go to garage sales. :)

I love that you found something at the garage sale! I couldnt believe how much stuff they had!!! I am ever so pleased with the heavy duty Wilton baking sheet I scored for $1. I'll let you know if I spy any more great late season sales.
