Not exactly tableware, but close!

Since they're plates, I figured I could get away with sharing them with you anyway. My DH and I always go to the Route 11 Yard Crawl in Virginia each summer and this year these Peppercreek Grove plates were one of my scores. I saw them and fell in love with them....love the type of scenes on them. I asked the lady how much she wanted for them and she said $8 for the whole set...that's a buck a plate...sooooo, I grabbed them up and hugged them all the way home! I looked online and these bad boys sell for anywhere from $200-$300 for the set!!! Are you kidding me?? I LOVE it when I get that sort of deal! I have the two fall ones out on display right now and love the way they look. Just wanted to share them with you~
