I LOVE Resale Shops…and found a new one

I just love and adore resale shops and recently found a new one very very close to our house. Boy did I ever clean up. I needed some new dishware and prefer quality when it comes to dinnerware so my mother and I found a 64 piece set of Pfaltzgraff dinnerware with a large vegetable bowl, covered casserole dish that is oven and microwave safe, butter dish, salt & pepper shaker set, cream & sugar and a sauce picture to boot. Now after complete inventory it more than likely started out as a setting for approximately 12 people but with time and breakage there are a few pieces missing.

I am in the process of contacting the manufacturer for purchasing the missing items to complete the set. Now you’re probably asking what’s the big deal about this? First of all, quality dinnerware is heavily glazed and fired and you can tell when you touch it that it’s quality. It has a unmistakeable thick yet creamy smooth texture you can only get when items are heavily glazed correctly and high quality grade. Secondly, my mother and I both know a lot about a lot of things and when we saw the set we were afraid to look at the price tag. Okay, being the blunt brazen person that I am I just went for the gold and lifted up the lid on the casserole dish and found it. It said 64 piece set $29.99!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOW, NOW THAT’S A STEAL OF A DEAL FOR ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We snatched it, we also browsed around for more goodies and found some awesome buys, we finally walked out for $67 and we seriously got our money’s worth. Just the dishes without all the add-ons like the butter dish, salt & pepper, etc. I priced at 179.99 and that was on sale, the suggested MSRP was $498.00 WOW, WOW, WOW and a major Whoo Hoo!!!!!!!!!!!. We all walked out thrilled and we’re going back tomorrow for clothing and items for the holiday season AND to start working on re-decorating the kiddos room really nice and very very affordable.

Drive around your area and double check for any new shops to get some major bargains like we did. We found this place by hunting down a bunch of Sunday coupons that someone had saved for me and we got lost on a major road and went through this places retail parking lot to turn around, well worth the time we spent and we’ll be going back for more tomorrow.
