Any visit to see Elly wouldn't be complete without a trip to the magical thrift store. If you follow Elly's blog, chances are that you know what I'm talking about already. The magical thrift store is a secret place in Elly's neighborhood that abounds with treasures so dirt cheap that you won't believe your good luck. Some of it is even free. I don't know of anywhere else you could score a whole set of Herman Miller dining chairs for fifteen bucks or get the perfect plaid flannel shirt for free. Just when I was starting to doubt that this fairytale place even existed, Elly let me in on the secret last week and led me there blindfolded (just kidding about the blindfold). I was on the hunt for dishes, and I ended up buying everything pictured above plus more (minus the cupcake) for four bucks. Four bucks. I think the last thing I spent four bucks on was a MetroCard.
I've been searching thrift stores for awhile now, looking for some new dishes. The patterns on these remind me of the delicate floral trim on Elly's beautiful new dress design.
