I love this pattern. Completed my 8 place setting now. Thanks for your quick shipping and all the care you did in packing. Do you hire out for Christmas wrapping. :)

It all started with one little cup and saucer

Just a few years ago I wandered into a thrift shop for the first time in my life. I was instantly fascinated by a little cup and saucer with a turquoise starburst and square design. I bought it and started researching! I was hooked.

The cup turned out to be a Taylor Smith & Taylor in the Moderne pattern. I have bought and sold hundreds of pieces of Taylor Smith & Taylor since then but I will never sell that adorable little cup and saucer that started all this!

I spend a lot of time "picking" in areas around where I live which is between Atlanta and Athens, Georgia. When I can get away, I head south through Alabama and along the Gulf Coast into North Florida, Mississippi, and even Louisiana picking up bits of the past along the way. What I can't bring physically, I bring home in photos. It makes for a unique kind of travel and I get to know the people of the place. This is the richest and most rewarding type of travel for me. The road trip is the destination and I don't often have a clue where I'll end up or what kind of crazy treasures I will acquire along the way.
