It Ain't Much...One Silly Little Plate...But What A Score! Having Quite A Sizable Collection Of Franciscan Starburst, Do I Need Another Dinner Plate? Status: Yup.
I was gonna feature this lil' beauty yesterday but those amazing Giancarlo (coolest designer name ever?) chairs showed up and I just couldn't wait. I found this Tuesday morning before heading in to work having popped into the two remaining Florissant thrifts to check the local traps.
I love my Franciscan Starburst. I have a HUGE collection of the stuff. I've got a ton of it in my
Broyhill Brasilia china cabinet on display...an more in the drawers...and yet even More still unpacked
in a box somewhere! And now, another dinner plate. But one plate? What's up with that nonsense?
SIXTY-NINE CENTS! That, my friends, is the cheapest piece of Franciscan Starburst dinnerware that
I have ever had the pleasure of purchasing...and I've gotten some sweet deals. OK, actually...I paid Fifty
cents each for the seven teacups in my initial "starter" set that I picked up at the goodwill several years
ago. But the dinner plates in that set were Two bucks each.
But one plate. It's driving me nuts. There had / has to be more! Did I miss it already, might it have been
put out today? Ugh. I got to stop torturing myself. I got plenty. Maybe somebody else started their big
crazy collection of Franciscan Starburst this week! Was it you?
