When I found this salad plate in a thrift store recently, I thought it was so silly.
But it made me happy! Even though it’s a little stained, the color design is perfect. And it was $2 so I bought it. It’s so full-on “flower power” but made by Villeroy & Boch – “founded in 1767″ according to the stamp on the plate’s back. The pattern is called Acapulco.
I love it more and more every time I take it out of the cupboard. But if I found another one of the same plate again, I would only buy it to flip on eBay - of course I checked, and someone on there is selling the same thing for $25. Just one of these plates is enough for me. If I came across an Acapulco butter dish on the other hand….
