I try to collect thinsgs I will use and not collect for collections sake but sometimes it gets a bit too much. I collect various coffee making apperati.... I like vintage kitchenwares (this started out of need shopping thrift but I found I really like the old things) I have particular fondness for things that are not made anymore or not made well anymore.... this is what got me started on cast iron.

I never collect in the real "collector" mode though paying an arm and a leg for things... just picking up what is available. I always seem to end up with more than i need though.

That is what I like too and cast iron. I was at a thrift store before Christmas and saw so many things that they don't make anymore. I was so tempted, but didn't get anything, since i don't have much space.

Limoges is beautiful china from the area of Limoges in France. There are several companies there still producing absolutely breathtaking dishware (at also breathtaking prices ) AND there are beautiful antique pieces available in shops and flea markets.

If I had lots of money, I would buy a set from this company. Bernardaud.

Thank you, for letting me know. I surely don't think I could afford to collect that, but maybe in some other lifetime.
