Well I know I said that I was trying to slow down on the Craigslist purchases, but just when I think Im done...they pull me back in.   I saw this stuff and emailed the seller, they agreed to wait the 2-3 days it would take me to drive to them (about 20 minutes from my home).  They actually left the items on the front porch and just told me to leave the money under the mat. (Does that even happen anymore, I was thrilled)

So of course I recruited my bff for the ride and pulled up to the house and there they were sitting on the porch.  It was like christmas for me...lol.    So I packed the boxes up and left the money under the mat and jumped back in my SUV when a large black milk can was starring at me.  Ive always wanted one of those on my porch, I have an old milk box that ive painted green, blue and now black. lol  

As you all know by now I love plates, so it was a no-brainer that I had to have these plates with the mugs. Total of 8 sets for 10.00! Check out the mug handles....soooo cute.   I love that theyre in the original boxes...I plan on storing them that way.
Then the same seller had this black glassware...the glasses are square!  I dont know how it'll be drinking from those corners but they will look adorable as a black accent in a tablescape.  My wheels are already turning for a black and white tablescape but Im still gathering items. lol  There is 8 larger glasses and 6 small all for $8.00!   How amazing was that.....that's definately one of my best finds.   Talk about more for your money.

Ugh...sorry guys.  Not able to upload the picture of the glasses...I dont know why but I will post it in the future tablescape.


  1. I have never even looked at Craig's list for anything. I am going to have to check it out. Amazing finds -- love those snack sets. Can't wait to see the black and white setting!!

  2. I just posted 2 things I found at Goodwill yesterday! your finds from Craiglist are great.

  3. What a great find! Thanks for stopping by my blog. The lemon dishes are from Pier One and are current. Mine are the salad size but actually a really nice size for a meal. There are dinner sized ones and serving pieces as well. I love lemons too. I hope you can find them.

  4. What great snack sets. I use to have a ton of those when cocktail parties were in vogue. Love them. Wonder where mine went. It is so nice to meet you, and thanks for the gracious comments on my bathroom. I would love to see yours. Hope you have a super day. Hugs, Marty


God don't like ugly! Neither do I...so if you dont have something nice to say.....keep it to yourself!
