Weekend Thrifting

My husband and I went to several thrift stores this past weekend and I found several things I liked. The Coffee Service was my favorite find and a splerge item. I never pay that much for dishes but I knew it was worth more than I was paying and I had been wanting one for a while that I could afford.
