Wooden and Ceramic Bowls and some other pottery

I've had an eye out for extra bowls lately and came across a few lovely ones. The above wooden bowl set came with a larger salad bowl and six serving size bowls, all in very good condition! Found them at a large thrift store in town, The Valley Thriftstore on Valley in the north eastern most part of Escondido. It's a really large store with lots to choose from. Prices are kind of steep for books (which  I am always on the look out for) but other items weren't too bad. I got this set for $10. Downside about this shop is I got to the counter and realized they only take cash (not posted at the door, only at the registers). They do have an ATM  but I really dislike paying ATM fees, so I had them hold and came back with some cash. At least I know to have cash on me next time I go there. There's another thrift shop across the street from there I'd like to try some other time.
This beautiful handcrafted pottery bowl was only a buck fifty (was 50% off). It is a lovely earth-toned color with imprints of leaves and seeds. Really pretty in real life. Got this one at the local Sally's. It's so pretty I want to just leave it out as decor.

The bowl below is also handcrafted pottery and a lovely light blueish-green glaze. Perfect size for some cereal or soup. It also was $1.50 from Sally's. I get some really good deals there, as recently they've had a lot of half off sales. 

My mom, sister-in-law and I went to the Vintage Marketplace in Rainbow this weekend. It was a beautiful, breezy day out in the country. Really nice spot for some vintage shopping and shabby chic decorating ideas. I picked up this cute little vintage Mexican pottery bird. I've just started collected Ken Edwards Pottery / El Palomar pottery. This one isn't but looks similar and looks nice next to the rest of my collection. 

Here's my Ken Edwards collection. One was a thrift find, one my mom gave me (probably also thrifted) and one I picked up on eBay for a decent price.

Had a fun weekend thrifting and vintage gazing. Hope you had a good weekend as well!
