I collect plates from Pennsylvania (where I was born).
I have been collecting these plates for years. I enjoy looking through stacks of plates at thrift stores and estate sales. Imagine the satisfaction of sorting through a large stack of plates only to find one near the bottom for 10 cents.
The joy and excitement!
I love collecting things but I only have so much space and money so, as an added challenge I never pay more than a quarter for my plates. If you are short on cash, plates of various color and size are the perfect choice for decorating your walls.
Don't limit yourself to plates in the kitchen or dining room either.
My plates are hanging in the study. They are a colorful distraction as I sit here typing.
