Right beside the Antique Castle was a dishware/china shop. This place is Fiestaware heaven. They had entire sets of retired colors and hard to find pieces. Unfortunately, they were out of our budget but, its fun to look. This is THE place to shop if you are looking for one or two pieces to complete your china set. I also saw the oddest water pitcher. Ever. Really. Odd.
Last but, definitely not least, we stopped at the Mercy Thrift Shop. This place was huge and well organized. It reminded me of the Guardian Angel Thrift in Fuquay. I found several deals. Donny found a recliner and took a nap. lol

In all we probably spent around 200 but, we have so many unique pieces that we will incorporate in our home. I don't have exact spots for majority of the pieces, yet. A few pieces may even end up in our client's homes. My main rule of junkin' is that if I like it and it's a good price - I buy it. I will figure out where and how to fit it in our house later. The worst feeling is regretting that one of a kind piece. I still regret passing on a $10 set of discontinued whimsical Christmas dishes at the flea market five years ago. I'd rather buy it and if it doesn't work out return it, sell it, gift it or donate it.
