UPDATE: Hey, I'm Susie! Thriftables was just a little ol' blog I started in 2012 about thrifting and DIY. When t
he domain thriftables.com got bought up from under me, I decided that I'd let the blog die. It's just a well; I never really updated it anymore anyway.
I will keep the most popular posts up. If you still want to be my buddy, please find me on Pinterest, Instagram, or Etsy. I'll probably start another blog or vintagey project someday soon. When I do, you'll hear about it there.

On a side note, if you find a pin or link that leads you back to thriftables.com, would you mind updating the link to point it back to thriftables.blogspot.com? I would appreciate it, and I'm sure the lost thrifter who stumbles across it will appreciate it, too.

How to Remove Utensil Marks from Vintage Fiestaware


Today the soulmate and I stumbled across a stack of vintage apricot Fiestaware for a mere $1.99 a piece at the thrifts. Though they were covered in grime and gray utensil marks, I quickly snatched them up and ran straight for my thrifting survival kit. I chose to use Bar Keepers Friend as per the FAQs on the Fiesta factory direct. With a little elbow grease and luck, I was able to make them shine like new.
