About a month ago I decided I really wanted to start a collection of vintage melmac/melamine dishes that I can use outside in the summer. I love all the colours they come in and thought it would be fun and maybe make me spend more time outdoors. :) They're also handy to have on hand when the niece/nephew come over. So I started scouring Etsy and found some adorable cups and saucers in a salmon pink from mantisvintage.
But I soon realized that it would cost me a fortune buying bits and pieces. And then I lucked out when I found a 72 piece set at the Etsy shop of Anthro Povertie. They were in an awesome colour combo of salmon, grey, blue and yellow, and they have speckles in them which happens to match my kitchen counters. :) Here is what the set includes: serving bowl, serving platter, butter dish and lid, creamer, sugar bowl and lid, gravy boat , 10 dinner plates, 6 salad plates, 12 dessert plates, 12 cups, 12 saucers, 7 berry bowls, 5 handled soup bowls. And all for $125 US. They arrived on Friday and are even cuter in person. Now I want to fix up my shed out back so I can display them on some shelves (LOL). BBQ at my place! (Thanks Amy!)
