Every since I saw on "That man's quilt", his dishes and glassware he collects, I have been wanting to show mine.
Since I have nothing quilty to show you....been busy but can't show you. I decided to show you my dishes.
Before we left Texas I had to sell alot of my dishes but I kept alot also and all but the following are in storage.
I have collected these dishes for 4 years, got them at garage sells....cheap...cheap. I have about a 16 place set, only brought 8 with me.
I was told that these are Diamond Shammrock Premiums. For those of you who are really young and don't know what premiums are..... I think the gas stations stopped doing the premiums in the early 70's. Anyways, you buy gas and get stamps and then you redeem these stamps for a dish. Eventually, you would get a whole set. If there is someone out there that knows more about these, I would love to know. I got this information from an antique dealer in Texas.
Aren't they pretty...look at the design on them.
I should have made them look prettier but sickness is going around...and it is all I can do to stand...I function quite well sitting. So I just made due with a quick picture.
