Thrifty Thursday: Shopper hits the jackpot with dinnerware find – Virginian

Everyone loves a bargain. This week’s find comes from Susan Powers, an associate insurance agent who lives in Moyock, N.C.

What: Yorktowne by Pfaltzgraff dinnerware collection


Cost: $36

Where: Goodwill on Cedar Road in Chesapeake

What makes it special: Jackpot! I have been checking out the thrift stores to decorate my new office. I was cruising the aisles at the Goodwill store on Cedar Road in Chesapeake when I found these pieces from my pattern, Yorktowne by Pfaltzgraff. I bought 41 pieces for $32. They also had another square dish for $4. I did my happy dance because this more than doubled my collection for dirt cheap. One of the platters alone is $30 regularly, and I got two! Had to use a little elbow grease to get the pricing stickers off, but very happy.
