Antiquing in Huntingburg

Don't you hate it when your words come back to haunt you? Remember a few days ago when I said that this was a weekend to purge...to simplify my possessions...a New Year???
Yesterday my friend Patty and I went to the Santa Stroll in Huntingburg. This set of Shenango China caught my eye...I thought about it as we strolled through the rest of the shops in the little town, and knew that I had to take it home with me.

The cheery red and white would be nice for the holidays...Christmas, Valentine's Day, and the "patriotic" red, white, and blue holidays of summer. 35 pieces for $29.00...I love the size of the luncheon plates.


I also found this little bowl, marked Mayer China, Beaver Falls, Pa #356. I don't know what the original use for it is, but it's so cute...tea bags, perhaps?

A bit of bizarre trivia ( that no one really cares about)...I had my tonsils out while visiting family friends in Beaver Falls PA in 1953. Try to top that for trivial nonsense.
