best buy...blue and white pottery


Blue and white pottery with an Asian influence is a timeless classic that has become
 mainstream. I fell for the 'collected over time' look but my budget and time frame didn't.
You can find beautiful high-end pieces and antiques or you can get the look at bargain prices
 as close as your local Ross store. Based on my shopping experience :) they receive a variety
 of different shapes and sizes often. When I was searching for a few for my One Room Challenge kitchen makeover I knew Ross was the first place to hit and it didn't disappoint.
 I found my entire collection there, and some of them on clearance.        
  


The vase above with the birds is about 17" tall and was $22.99.
The hexagon piece is about 13" tall and 8-9" wide for $12.99.


These are in my lighted cabinets in the kitchen, the vase on the left with a unique
 shaped handles is about 15" tall and was $12.99 on clearance.


If you pop in to check and they happen to be out be sure to stop back,
it seems they get a sprinkling of inventory, but it's often.

There's just something about your blue and white pottery that I just love, truly timeless and classic!

Blue & white is so perfect in your refreshed kitchen! Love that pop of cobalt and there is something about the wood tones with the pottery - the spoons next to the stove - such a pretty vignette!

Brandi said...

You're so right, Pam! The few pieces I have came from Ross and flea markets. T

I love the idea to use blue & white for kitchen utensils! And styled on a tray? Gorgeous! I'm not sure I could keep my counters looking that organized, but you're inspiring me!

Ross is such a great place for steals. I have to be in 'hunting mode' when I go there though!

What great finds Pam! I think there are a couple Ross stores in NJ somewhere. I have to check them out! I have also found a few blue and white pieces at Hobby Lobby.

Your blue & white pieces are so pretty, Pam. Only Ross here is a dress shop, never been in but will check it out.

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

My go-to for blue and white! I did find a good new piece at Hobby Lobby the other day, too! Love how you've added that into your kitchen.

Beautiful. I used to have so many blue and white pieces, but passed several along to my mom who loves them just as much as I did.

Love them...I do have a collection of blue and white jars...I'm still dieing over those bamboo chairs you found!

Haley said...

Great finds! I love the one with the birds on it. My grandma was a blue and white fan and she had tons of stuff and I luckily inherited some of the smaller pieces and pretty much fall in love with any blue and white that I see when I'm shopping.

Julie Reinwald said...

These look beautiful, and at great prices too. I just love your photo with the lilacs!

My Grandmother had a large collection of Bowbell blue and white pottery, including dinner, luncheon and dessert plates. But my favorite pieces were the tea pots and serving pieces. I had them for years and passed them on to my daughter who has been enjoying them ever since! They are, and have been, in the same mahogany cabinet that my Grandmother kept them in!

Leslie said...

ROSS? I didn't know they carried those! Wonderful pieces Pam and I think they are timeless and look pretty just about anywhere. Great find!

Jane Bernard said...

Those blue and white vases are beautiful!! Great finds. I love a good bargain!

Julia Konya said...

They always have blue and white pottery and I love it. Looks great in your home! I always want to add it to mine too but can't find the right spot

Tracy Laverty said...

Great find at Ross! The blue and white is so classic and adds such a pretty color to your chic kitchen makeover.

Vel Criste said...

I was lucky to score some from too from TJ MAxx for $14.99! Love your finds too!!!

Bethany DeVore said...

I love the classic look of blue and white! I'd love to start a collection of my own (not that I need any more collections!) You can't beat the prices at Ross!

Sarah said...

Classic and timeless! I've added blue and white ceramics to our home since we first married. Most of mine were thrift shop or estate sale finds. You found some beautiful pieces and shapes. Love the vase with the birds. I'll have to stop in to Ross and see their selection. Thanks for sharing!
