Garage Sale Goodness: Bowled Over

Midwest garage sales are magical places where treasures show up without much effort and sellers seem almost embarrassed to take your money. Now I know this J.G Meakin ironstone bowl isn't in pristine condition, but for 50 cents it's completely useful and to me, its scrapes and dings only add to its charm.

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

The Elegant Thrifter


  1. I am with you! the scrapes and dings add charm! And for 50 cents you cannot walk away!

  2. Slightly jealous! I have yet to find a single piece of ironstone I can afford throughout all my thrifting. Of course, all things white are popular in CA. Ha ha. Great find!

  3. It's still beautiful, especially for 50 cents!

  4. A wonderful find, Stan! White ironstone (with chips and crazing) is a favorite of mine! :)
