I've been in love with the look of blue and white porcelain forever. Before Pinterest, I clipped pictures from magazines of rooms featuring ginger jars and now my boards are full of images of blue and white stacked shelves. For a long time, I thought that those blue and white beauties were out of my reach, price-wise. However, I've found a few sources of really affordable porcelain that I want to share with you!
Of course, my favorite sources for blue and white pieces are fleas and thrift shops, but you can't count on finding what you are looking for. Luckily, I stumbled upon my next favorite source a few years ago, One Kings Lane. I'd know about the site for a long time, but I only recently realized that they have great blue and white pieces at a fraction of what you'd pay elsewhere, usually about half of other sources.
They have so much more than I show here. For the past few years, I've asked for one jar a year for Christmas.
Another great source for smaller bowls (around 6-8" wide) is a Chinese import store in Manhattan called Pearl River Mart. Their brick and mortar was closing down when I was there in February (sniff, sniff), but they still have a full selection online: Pearl River.
Here are a few of the places that I have them scattered around my house:
If you love the look of blue and white as much as I do, I hope that these links help you satisfy your wants while not hurting your pocketbook!
