WHY DO I COLLECT?

Why do I collect? That's easy... because it's so much fun! Ever since I can remember I have been going to flea markets, antique shops, yard sales, you name it. Wherever I could find some sort of interesting treasure or cool piece of junk! I love driving around in search of new places or revisiting my favorite spots. I come from a family of collectors and have lived amongst antiques and collectibles my whole life. I have a passion for decorating especially with things that I find in my travels or even things found in the trash... which by the way can be some of the best stuff! But for those who share the same passion, I don't have to tell you... you all know what fun it is and how addicting it can be! Here I will share my collections, interesting finds, decorating tips, photos, projects, friends collections and thoughts and whatever else I may find along the way.

OVAL RESTAURANT PLATES


More from my restaurant/hotel china collection. I love oval plates and also odd pieces like these celery dishes. I got the top oval plate from Antique Haven in Riegelsville, PA, which is one of my favorite places, and it says Joy Yoeng... probably from a cool old Chinese restaurant... and the middle plate from Browns Diner was purchased at a yard sale for 50 cents! I was very pleased with that purchase since I had seen the same plate at Atlantique City for $75!

  1. Fantastic post! Would you please let me know if you have anything from the old Grunewald Hotel in New Orleans? That is my family, and it is hard to find. I would be forever grateful! Thanks.
