Crazy for Crockery

Hi everyone, so today I thought I would introduce you to another thing I love to collect and that is crockery. I love anything that is old and vintage and in particular Japanese and Moroccan inspired. I collect everything from cups, jugs, plates and dishes (to name but a few). If it can hold something then I will buy. I have stacks and stacks of items, a lot of which I sell because I cannot feasibly keep it all unfortunately! But my favourite pieces I will always keep and I make sure I have a good selection to hand when people come round. At the moment I have lots of little jugs from glass to pottery which I use to serve milk or water in. I also have lots of nice pots and plates which I fill with colourful Indian dips and serve with chapatti on the side. It’s so great to serve someone a drink or some food and for them to enjoy the vesicle it is presented in. Whenever people visit my home they are always so intrigued by this and always want to know where I have purchased my unusual crockery from. In answer to their question I pick up a lot of these items on my travels. Wherever I go I will pick up a random piece of crockery and will seek out second hand outlets that sell all manner of items. In South East Asia there are a lot of second hand stalls and charity shops that sell crockery from Japan. These places are literally a treasure trove full to the brim with unique and rare items. You have to have an eye for shopping though as there is a lot of tat to sort through before you find those treasured items! Here are a few of my favourite finds…
