I love antique shopping, too, although I never think to look for China. I might try that next time! I love the antique stores that kind of remind me of someone’s attic; stuff everywhere. I usually just look for random decorative objects, but I’m in the market for a hob nail milkglass cake stand right now. I have found a few, but I’m not in love with any of them yet.

I think antique shopping is so much fun!  I don’t do it often anymore though, since “antiques” in NYC are super duper expensive!  Actually when we visit a friend who lives in VA, we go all the time.  I really like hat boxes for some reason.  I’ve gotten some cute ones.  And vases or glassware of any kind really, always lean toward those.  Oh, and lamps!  They don’t make lamps like they used to!  Lol 🙂

I LOVE vintage dishes. I’ve been collecting Franciscan Starburst since I was in high school. I use it every day and it can go into the oven or dishwasher with no problem!

I’ve been antique shopping! We’re having a dessert buffet at the reception and my idea in my head is having the desserts on different glass antique cake platters. FI laughs when I ask him to pull over at different shops or estate sales now.

Oh my goodness! I refer to myself more as a “thrift” shopper, for YES! I love shopping for antiques and unique finds.. I am always finding the most fun things, my favorite store is Salvation Army – although it’s regional, because I went to an SA in New York while I was living there and it was disgusting! But where I am, I love it!

I recently found this the other day, it’s a china set of plates, saucers, cups and bowls – 35 pc set for $15!!
