FALL TABLE & YARDSALE FINDS

 
Have you ever gone yardsaling (yardsailing?) and hit the jackpot?  I finally did!  (As usual, I took the photos at night).
 
 


This is my most recent fall tablescape.  Our regular dishes are fall colors, and I usually use those for my fall table.... but I got super blessed this week.  I found these beautiful dishes at a yard sale.  They were asking $25 for them, but I talked them down five buckaroos and practically stole them for $20!

Don't cha just love this coffee pot with matching cream & sugar bowl.  And the salt & pepper shakers are just swoon worthy.


 "Myott"
Royal Mail 
 Fine
Staffordshire Ware
Made in England
(that's what is says on the back)
 
I call it brown/black transferware.
 
 
I researched this pattern on ebay and etsy, and it is  going for A LOT more than 20 bucks baby!  (Baby?  I must be really excited).
 
 
 
There are eight place settings which include 6 pieces.  Not a scratch, chip, or missing piece anywhere.
 
 
 Teacup & Saucer
 
 
There are also 2 large serving platters and 2 large serving bowls
 

 
 
Two small oval platters and a gravy boat
 
 
 
 
 
 
Eight dessert plates
 
 
A covered bowl
 
 
To round out my fall table there are many more yard sale finds.  
 
Brown tablecloth - $0.25
Lace tablecloth - $2.00
Oval cutting board - $1.00 
Courting candlesticks - $2.00
Hydrangeas - free (from my generous neighbor)

  4. Beautiful!!!! Your table is beautiful! I lucked up on the same dishes a couple of years ago at a yard sale for the same amount of money!!! I just love them, they take center stage in my kitchen! I did find a few more pieces on ebay and at that time the price was right, but now they are much higher in price.

  7. If you never get another bargain, you certainly got the prize on those dishes. I love the Royal Mail pattern in red but have only a few pieces. Congratulations, it's lovely.
