After what seemed like such a long time, it was with great enthusiasm that I did a whirlwind visit to 5 opshops yesterday, with one thing in mind, which was to find one more pattern for the Tableware Gallery to hit 600.
Ended up finding 9 patterns ... though one we already have Razz
Forgot one .... a brown Suzette, so hope it's still there next time!
Prices have gone up .....
eg. As that saucer is Crown Lynn that will be $1 thank you ... Ohhh Kkkk
A Camille side plate was $3 and an Interlude dish was $2 with a large crack and sticker said for display only ....... what the ????
Saw 5 pristine, beautiful, gorgeous Capistrano side plates .... sticker said $8
What a struggle I had with my alter ego ..... which kept telling me that I wanted them so bad. But I kept saying .... Why? What do I want them for? We have that pattern already in the Gallery. Hahaa I won, but have regretted it ever since : (
Photos to come of Vila, Enchantment d408, Brookfield, 2 cups with patterns I've never seen, a grey daises apollo and a couple of no namers Very Happy

The Restore place has all of the Crown Lynn pieces @ $2 unless otherwise marked and they have heaps. I'm used to 50c for a saucer Marl and I only want to take it's pretty photo, so it's like a 100% increase .... nevermind can't complain really as I'm just giving to charity Wink
