Thrill of the Hunt #130: Blue and White Series #3

December 26, 2022

Welcome, friends, to another fun-filled Thrill of the Hunt post where I share my latest thrifty (and usually) vintage finds with you.

My hope is that by sharing my thrifty finds I can motivate and inspire you to explore your own local thrift stores, estate sales, flea markets and barn sales, and discover your own fabulous finds for yourself. So let's get started.

Normally I share pretty much random items that I've recently acquired through my thrifting travels. But I recently began highlighting the most lovely blue and white porcelain pieces I've been lucky enough to either be gifted or find over the past few months. 

The collection is large, so we're now at installment #3 in the series. If you missed the first two installments, you can go back and review Thrill of the Hunt #128 and Thrill of the Hunt #129.

square chinoiserie cachepot with lid

First up is this lidded chinoiserie cachepot. My daughter found it for me at Goodwill for $4.99. While that's a lot for me to spend on one of these, I thought this one was unique enough to warrant the price.

It has no maker's mark, just a very faded $49.95 original price tag from a store called Aaron Brothers. I checked into it and the parent company of Michael's is called Aaron Brothers! Small world.

I've never seen one with a lid that has holes in it. Perhaps the container is supposed to hold potpourri?

I can always use it without the lid as well.

blue and white porcelain chinoiserie pitcher with dried hydrangeas

I found this blue and white chinoiserie pitcher in a tiny thrift store in my daughter's college town.

The cachepot you can see peeking out from underneath the tabletop was shared in Thrill of the Hunt #117.


I immediately fell in love with it.


It's actually pretty huge and a great place to display flowers including some of my dried hydrangeas.

I was also drawn to it due to its unusual shape and handle.

This is another chinoiserie cachepot that my daughter found for me at Goodwill for $2.99.

blue white floral chinoiserie cachepot

I love the floral pattern on it and how it looks with my large moss ball in it.


I believe many different types of faux greenery would look good in this, especially boxwood.


And yes, there are still more installments of the Blue and White Series yet to come, so stay tuned!

Well, that's it for today, friends!

Always love seeing your blue and white finds as I love it, too. I wonder if that cache pot is a soap dish??? The holes would let the soap dry out and last longer?? Our GWs in Maine are increasingly expensive--not priced for resellers at all. And as a collector, I sometimes refuse to pay $3 for a Dollar Tree item! Happy New Year! Kathy A
