Nautical Tableware

In the midst of packing up my entire apartment this weekend to move, I've found some belongings I had completely forgotten about. Most of them are things like old 3D glasses, dust bunnies the size of my head, and mix tapes. But these little plates were a hidden gem. I bought them earlier in the summer at the Cape Ann Whale Watch gift shop in Gloucester, Mass, and had never taken them out of their box. $10 for the set, which I thought was pretty good for being in a tourist trap.




Yes, they say Nantucket. Obviously not a local Gloucester product. I just love those cute little whales. I plan to actually use the plates at my new apartment, and they'll be perfect for breakfast or dessert.




They're made by Boston Warehouse, a company I recognized from their "Animal House" line, which are little kitchen gadgets in the shapes of animals.

  2. You should go for it, Eleni. Rue La La had a sale on Thomas Paul pretty recently. Not that whale platter, but a bunch of their plate sets.
