I started collecting Fiesta Ware when I was about 19 or 20 and got my first place of my own. My Grandmother had died recently and all her of belongings were stored in my mom's garage. I needed dishes, pots and pans and all the things to start building a home. She had Fiesta dishes and glassware. I liked it so much I started looking for more pieces at thrift stores and garage sales. It was still cheap and plentiful back then. The cobalt lamp is my favorite. They were an exclusive for Buffums Dept Store and much of the inventory was broken in shipment due to an accident. So these are very rare.
