I have always adored the Made in Germany Waechtersbach Christmas pattern. Always! I grew up with one single piece of it that my mom brought out at Christmastime - a mug. It was my favorite mug because it said 1979 on it, my birth year, and because it long kept my cocoa hot. When I see the pattern now, and I know you can still buy it new in department stores, I get happily nostalgic.
Now, I've been scouring the thrifts and for the first time in months, this purchase is one I'd actually consider a score. I found both bowls at a Goodwill, bottom shelf (I'm adding bottom shelf since I now have a belly; bending down is like an Olympic sport and mine was a gold medal performance). There were two other pieces: a cupcake stand and a tray, but both were chipped beyond my liking. Since it was "Christmas," both pieces were half price. So the total came to a whopping five bucks and change. Woohoo!
