Last week I had to run some errands in San Francisco on Friday and decided to stop by a new vintage/resale shop I found near the Haight. It is called The Other Shop and it is an adorable place full of goodies and incredibly well-organized. Wondering through the different booths, I ran across a sign that makes any shopper’s heart aflutter…….
So being a good shopper, I sidestepped the old lady blocking the aisle and dove right in. After digging though a few random items such as a box of ashtrays and plastic bags filled with random toy pieces, I happened up what I think is a major win! I found what I thought was a set of 7 pristine vintage Heath dinner plates. Quickly flipping the plates over, I found out they were indeed Heath plates! Even better was that the set was on sale for about $30 – SCORE! I confirmed with the sales clerk that the dishes were indeed part of the sale and was happily assured that those bad boys were so I quickly bought them before anyone changed their mind.
I love the brown and tan colorations! I love their heft and the way they feel in my hands. Yet I am torn on whether I will use them as regular plates or will I hang them on the wall in my kitchen. I have a wall in mind and I think they will look stunning all lined up.
So what do you think? Should I use them for food or for decoration?
