The hunt for vintage dinnerware goes on, in many of the same places. Currently, I have no avenue to offer them for sale, but there is work going on behind the scenes. Cannot say when or how, just yet.
In the midst of major change – as many people have seen in the past few years -- what is it about vintage dishes that gives a bit of soothing light? After all, they are just dishes.
Vintage dishes bring up memories of simpler times. You ate your cereal at grandma’s house, using certain bowls that are now vintage.
Your wedding china reminds you of those early days, like Camelot, when life seemed magical and full of promise.
It’s easy to wish for simpler times.
Vintage dishes often hold deeper meaning, and It’s the associations that go with the dishes that are important – and for many of us, the reason why we keep looking in thrift shops, flea markets, garage sales and other places, for those special dishes.
