Dishspotting Alert #2
I went back for the black pottery, $15, service for 4.
But they were cracked, so I had to return the box. Meanwhile, I went dishspotting. Dr. Gollum was, as always, with me, as a preventive measure. He wanted me to show you all this rabbit. He has picked it up each time we've stopped at BL. It's a little bank, perfect for a child as an Easter gift.
Brown footed goblets...
Candlesticks..I'm a Bad Dishspotter, I couldn't find prices.
These were too cute for a beachy tablescape--little, individual vases?
These figurines are $3. They are heavy. Wouldn't they make gorgeous napkin rings?
Flatware to shake things up.
Helen, they have oodles of cake stands. This one is mod, yet traditional.
A condiment server for omelet or taco fixings, or whatever. Even something non-kitcheny, like, desk supplies, make up, herb/plant stand.
For $10,this would make a beautiful Christmas gift...or a neat element of a tablescape (drinks in front of a roaring fire....?)
72-piece dish set. I love the embossed lines. $26, includes 8 glasses
and flatware for 8.
They'd look wonderful mixed with the dishes I bought last week (and I know at least ONE of my Dishy Friends bought a set, too, lol). :-) I still haven't opened the box, but my friend reports that it comes with napkin rings, salt and pepper shakers. Check it out! O! Big Lots, hire us to be your Dish Mavens. LOL We will accept payment in pottery and cookies.
As promised, I checked out the cooking oils. $3.50.
These bunny compotes have no price, therefore, BL must be giving them away.
Dr. Gollum is starting to love these excursions. He even bought something: wee chickens in a wire basket. They have rabbits, too.
Check out the Easter baskets in the background. The empty ones would make great storage for going up/down basement stairs.
I bought one of the lime green bunnies. $3. Too adorable for Jelly Bellies.
Door or fence decor...with sprigs of faux forsythias blooming all over the store.
Until next time....
