We know that not having matching pieces for your dishware can sometimes be annoying or bothersome for those of us who like everything to match well together, but there are actually a lot of benefits to buying dishware at the thrift store. All you have to do is have a plan and realize that you can actually mix and match pieces that you have with new ones, even if they’re not from the same set.
You can choose a color palette or use one colorful plate as a center piece and then build a whole table spread around it. It’s a fun exercise, and you will be surprised by the quality of the items you sometimes find at thrift stores. Not to mention, if something breaks by accident, no one will cry about it due to the price, and no set is ruined!
Not to mention, if you’re into food photography, you can find a myriad of interesting and aesthetic plates at the thrift store that will take your pictures to the next level, with the added benefit that they won’t break the bank!
