Thrifty Finds - Oven Safe Dishes

Yum

I have been much more picky about what I purchase at the thrift shops these last few months. I simply don't have room for any more dishes! And yet, yes, I just had to have this fish-shaped serving dish. And why not? It's summer and, after that long, cold winter, I figure I deserve to use fun, festive dishware, right? I can rationalize my purchases with the best of them. Plus this little guy is oven safe. Not that I would subject him to the oven. No way.

Turns out this cute fish dish is a piece of Coche Stoneware, made in Portugal by Eurogres. From what I can tell, this stoneware is no longer in production, but there are a few pieces floating around on eBay.



I also bought this little white dish recently. Because it has a cute little handle. That's a good reason, huh? I figure I can use it to melt margarine or coconut oil in the stove while I'm cooking or baking. The dish is oven and microwave safe and made in the USA. I have a microwave, but I keep it in the basement and I don't feel like walking down there when I'm cooking. I put it in the basement years ago when my naturopath told me it fills all food within six feet of it with radiation. Anyhow, that's why I was attracted to this little dish.

Have you been treating yourself to any thrift store purchases lately?

  1. Good finds!! I've been staying away from the thrifts- I just had a huge garage sale and if I filled the house back up, Brian might kill me ;)

    1. That's so great Ruthie! I always admire people who sell a bunch of their stuff. But we never seem to do it around here... ;)
