Well, I blogged only last week how I often looked for 50s and 60s plates when car booting/junk/charity shopping and never found any...well....I went Charity shopping yesterday in my local town, and found 6 vintage plates! hooray!
The best places for vintage crockery are always the Salvation Army, and Hospice shops (where I got my plates from). Morbid as it is, these are the places that do the house clearances, or get stuff left to them when people pass on...and obviously these are the homes that the 50s and 60s stuff comes from that people have had stashed away for years. I like to think that they would be happy that their old crockery was being put to good use again :)
Anyway....enought waffle...here they are;
Ironware by Biltons of Staffordshire. Hand painted 1960s - 50p Salvation Army
Milkware - Made in England 1960s. I got 2 dinner plates and 2 side plates in this design for £1.50 the lot
Milkware - Made in England 1960s - 50p
I shall be serving my Xmas Eve guests their evening meal on these!
