Thrifty Find: Floral Plates.

April 9, 2010

Picked up these pretty plates from my local thrift store this week. I love that they’re so light & delicate. And florals are definitely my pattern of choice these days.

S and I are going up to the Bay next week — half visiting family, half playing. I’m itching to check out the thrift stores & flea markets up there, to see if I can find some treasures like these.

If anyone knows of good places to eat, visit, shop, or thrift in San Francisco, do tell! We’re gonna cram in all the goodness we can get :]

    Hi Cathie!

    if you happen to be there in the beginning of the month someday, you should definitely check out Alameda Flea Market. ( I think it’s every first Sunday of the month… it is the biggest flea market I’ve ever been to and it is soo awesome!

    I also recommend “Kate’s” on lower haight for breakfast… it’s goooooooood!

    Pretty finds. I feel like I always have the worst luck at thrift stores. Maybe I just need more patience.
