It had been a really, really, really long time since I had come across any... and I've been collecting LuRay for even longer. You can read some of my other posts that I've written about this pastel, mood lifting dinnerware, here, here, or here.
Either there isn't much of it left or folks are hoarding it!
Not sure.... but I was soooo thrilled to see it on the shelf.
I wasn't even at this particular Goodwill to shop for myself. Bebe had a school event for for literature class: Hans Brinker Day. The kids were encouraged to dress up, so there we were scouring for a Dutch costume in the skirt aisle. After we had narrowed it down to just one skirt that she liked I said "Quick... Mommy is just going to go look in the back!"
All I heard were groans in protest - BUT YOU ALL KNOW I JUST HAD TO!
And I'm so glad I did.
I think it was round two in the "pink" aisle, you know.... how Goodwill organizes by color... when I saw a small stack of three Sharon Pink LuRay dishes. A small platter, a berry bowl, and a coupe soup.
It was like I had won at BINGO!
So up to the register we went. I was checking out and watching the girl wrap the LuRay when all of a sudden it hit me (I'm slow to think these days) THEY ORGANIZE BY COLOR!!!!!! There must be more in the other color sections!
So back we went, on a scavenger hunt, with of course, more protests! Bebe started enjoying it a little, I think...now that we were on a mission. It was great having someone else there with me who knew what it looked like!
I was right, of course. They had separated the LuRay (for shame) and we had to dig through the green, yellow and blue areas.
I found two bakers, one in green and one in blue. Unfortunately they were both chipped. The chips looked really fresh, too. Rats.
But I did get another coupe soup in yellow and one in blue. Success! I spent 19.00 on the five pieces, which I thought was pricey, but I was just happy to have found my favorite vintage dinnerware.
What a perfect time of year to find some LuRay Pastels - SPRING!
What have you found lately? I'd love to hear about it!
