Was brought up by parents who were always dragging us girls to the Goodwill, Salvation Army and any junk store we could hit! At the Salvation Army loading dock on Elliot Bay in Seattle, my mom would be there every Saturday morning waiting for the 'stuff" to come in, while us girls ran through 3 acres of various sheds with lots of "used" goodies.

Discovered A new way to search...google "yellow disc pitcher" and when it comes up, click IMAGES. Search the images until you find yours, click on it and the info comes up. Much easier than reading all the BS and clicking dead-ends links, ads, etc.
You can refine your search to "mini" "3 inch" "creamer" or whatever it takes. You can also alleviate items by using a minus sign (dash) such as -Fiesta -Homer -red. Make sure the minus sign touches the word (no space between it).
