What have you DUNN for me lately?

A new home decor collectible for me, Rae Dunn Pottery. Simplistic words on imperfect pottery. Who knew!

One part insanity (trying to find them) One part home decor frenzy (trying not to get stampeded on in the stores).

Having done ceramics myself for many years I can honestly say, "I love a good mug."

I never thought I would find a hard to get home decor item...a MUG.... from a designer so sought after that they would only be available in three department stores

{TJMaxx, Marshalls and Homegoods stores}  and that people will go to the worst extremes to get some of these items. 

 When you're reading in Rae Dunn Facebook Groups that people literally:

  • Take every item they find off of the shelf to re-sell... (shelf clearers they call them)
  • Take items out of another persons cart for themselves...
  • Run through the store like madmen at the stores opening, daily, to get it first...
  • Push others down...
  • Harass sellers on Mercari, Ebay and Amazon for being (up) sellers because people in your group taunt you to...
  • Post screenshots of sellers or store workers on the above named stores FB page to get them fired
  • And provoke such hateful speech against people in groups because others have what you want and you don't like it

I can only wonder what the's an imperfectly glazed, made in China mug...canister... and dog DISH!

Have people really lost their minds over this stuff?  The answer is, Possibly.

When we started caring for my father in law we had time in between visits and we started to go up to the mall to walk around and burn off nervous energy. We had a TJMaxx store open and since we didn't visit it at the opening, we started walking around the home decor sections. I do love my house stuff.

I noticed hanging on the end cap these cream colored mugs with simplistic words on them.  I grabbed a set of Mr. and Mrs. mugs, posted the pic on Instagram and that began this collection.  A week later I found some cute bowls, shared that photo and realized Instagram was crazy for this stuff.

Because I use Pflatzgraff Naturewood pattern dishes these items blend well but I don't need tons of it... After three decades together I have a few different dinnerware patterns on hand.

My husband liked the Thanksgiving things we found in store but having hosted years of holidays I am pretty stocked up on serve-ware.  Mugs I like, because those are fun. But these platters and trays, well not having someone to pass this stuff down to seems wasteful to collect - for me anyway. So it wasn't until people asked me to get them a few things here and there ... and then they didn't follow through that let me with the "extra" stuff.

I will try to sell those first, and return those big things if they don't sell.  So those (up) sellers can have their fun too.

Here is what I have found so far-
