Since it's the 'tail end' of the Christmas season, I thought I would show you the related retro items I picked up recently.
As you can see Prince William's namesake had a hand in producing this. Actually I have no idea what company produced this little plate. But there is a company with that name that produces mugs only.....who knows?!
This plate is a little bigger than the first and it looks like it was made here in Canada. Can't come up with any info on it. But it fits the season with all the colour!
This 'collectors'/commemorative plate caught my attention because of the date....1974, a very good year for me!
It was made in Japan and is for 'show'/hanging only....no food allowed on this plate! Too much lead probably!
This tiny, little Santa (about one and a quarter inches) is porcelain and just to cute to pass by.
And lastly is this dessert-server......my favourite of the bunch! Love the colouring and the 'Frosty' theme.
There! That should just about do it for Christmas for another year! Time to move ahead into a new decade and new adventures in 'thrifting'.
All the best to everyone and a very Happy New Year to all of you. Here's to 2011!!!!
