The search for vintage blue & white plates can take one on many adventures and here we are, headed to Sanford to pick up a set of Blue Meissen china from an estate sale. Safely in the back seat is our masked vintage hunter partner, Priscilla.
When you can combine a vintage adventure with great conversation, you know you must be living right!! And, to add another layer of goodness, Priscilla has a keen eye for the unusual and takes amazing photographs on her travels. These scenic photos of Sanford are hers and add a wonderful historic flavor to today’s post.
We browsed the estate sale and both of us picked up some of Betty’s treasures, including two sets of embroidered vintage napkins, wooden candleholders and napkin rings, and a gorgeous set of vintage floral blue and white china.
We had two more thrift stores on our vintage adventure and came home with a box of candles, a few tablecloths, two candelabras and a set of vintage goblets. Priscilla bought a platter, some vintage books, and wooden spoons. At each stop, we were pleased to see that everyone wore masks and hand sanitizer was available.
No thrift store adventure is complete without a food break, usually one that includes barbecue. 🙂 Since it was on the way home, Allen & Son’s BBQ was our last stop. Their bbq, slaw, and sweet potato fries are amazing as well as the fried flounder sandwich. Since there is no dining inside, we ordered takeout and headed home with our food and a trunk full of new “old” things.
Not our ride, but a treat to see!
