Juliska Look-Alike

 

 Dinner   Plate
This is certainly my lucky day!!!!  I've been mooning over this Juliska pattern that I've seen in lots of high end stores for some time.  My favorite display was one I recently saw in Neiman's where they showed it with a very grayed down lavender.  Beautiful!
This is another similar pattern by Juliska called Berry and Thread.  I think it must be one of their oldest and most popular.  This five piece place setting is $141.  Not totally outrageous, but since I have several cupboards full of nothing but white dishes, they were not coming home with me. dining room Christmas table set
This is a photo from pinterest that I pinned with similar dishes.  They weren't identified in the linked post, but I love the way they are used.
 
Well, it pays to keep your eyes open!  This morning, as I was running into Kroger to do the very unglamorous job of looking for garbage disposal deodorant, these plates jumped out at me!  At $1.99 each, how long do you think it took me to gently place 8 dinner plates and 8 salad plates into my cart?  Folks.......that is not a typo.  $1.99 each!

And for another $2.99 I grabbed these salt and pepper shakers.  They had other serving pieces, but I passed on them.

I found these real-deal Juliska s/p shakers on line and I think I remember they were $65. 

There's no denying that I'd far rather have the real Juliska, and that it is no doubt a much higher quality, but you better believe that I'm feeling great about this score!  Now, if I could only find Juliska's Country Manor (in blue, please) knocked off at $1.99 a plate, I'd be delirious!

  2. I really relate to this post. In fact I just googled where the nearest Kroger's is to my house. To far, otherwise I would be on the way to snag a set of these beauties for myself :(

    1. At my Kroger they say they get what they get and can't order more. Was disappointed. They had these for just one Christmas season.

  3. What a great find. Honestly, you wouldn't know they weren't expensive dishes.

  6. I shall now enrich your life by sharing with you about Juliska. The constantly changing fashionable take on Juliska demonstrates the depth of the subject. Remarkably Juliska is heralded by shopkeepers and investment bankers alike, leading many to state that several of todays most brilliant minds seem incapable of recognising its increasing relevance to understanding future generations.
