Mikasa Day Dreams

This past week I’ve found several super deals at the local Goodwill.  I’ve been restraining myself as far as dishes are concerned because I’m getting too many but I just couldn’t pass these up! 
I found 8 dinner plates, 8 salad plates, and 8 soup bowls of Mikasa Garden Club Day Dream! This pattern was produced between 1986-1990.  I love the beautiful blue of the flowers with the brown trim of the dish.
But wait, there’s more!
I also found a few days earlier, a complete 45 piece set of Reed and Barton Everyday Stainless in the Gatehouse pattern!  They were all in a zip loc bag but looked brand new!
Now, drum roll please!  The dishes were 59 cents each, which came to $14.16!!! for a set of Mikasa!  The flatware was 4/$1, which came to $11.25!  The flatware averages about $100 for the set new.
I’m very pleased with my thrifty finds this week.  Even though, I told myself no more dishes, I couldn’t help thinking “but their Mikasa”!  They just had to come home with me.
Thanks for stopping by!
