I think it all started with a thrifted hutch and a need to fill it with something. I wanted to be a furniture refurbisher, to sell my art on Etsy in the form of re-purposed dressers, hutches and such. After refinishing a gorgeous art deco cabinet, and being unable to sell it, I fell in love. I couldn’t let it go. It now lives in my hall way; covered in family photos and filled with linens. I fell in love with dishes. Please excuse the screwdrivers and tape I was still attaching hardware when this pic was taken.
The cabinet lead to the Hutch, the hutch was supposed to be another sale piece… ( I get attached to furniture )The hutch still lives with me too. As soon as I saw it in my house I knew it was staying and that I had to fill it. I’ve always wanted china, until a few months ago I knew nothing about china . The hutch gave me a need for china and a need to research china.That is how I fell in love with dishes,bought way to many and now am a vintage housewares seller on Etsy .
My first set of dishes,( it’s available on Etsy https://www.etsy.com/shop/DishsUp?ref=hdr_shop_menu) Was Noritake Weston. I fell in love with Noritake, especially mid century noritake as soon as I started researching china. Now I have a large stock of all things concerning the Mid century kitchen..And a few toys.
I plan to post on Tuesdays and Thursdays. my next post will be about the Noritake progression line.
