Posts Tagged ‘Fiestaware’

I’m in heaven! Fiestaware is probably one of the most iconic dinnerware patterns around, and it’s still made in the USA! You’ve probably seen it, or one of the other Homer Laughlin china patterns in your favorite vintage diner, restaurant or retro eating establishment.

Fiestaware Seconds Room CloseupThe factory tour was already full when we tried to make reservations, so I consoled myself by buying a deviled egg tray and a few other cheery pieces in the 2nds room. The colors go perfectly with the interior of the Hacienda! They also sell first quality Fiestaware at the outlet.

Update 6/2011: I’ve been told via a comment on the photo below in Flickr that this business has closed. Bummer! Glad we were able to visit it when we did.

During our all too short visit to the Lake George region we discovered LG’s neighbor Glens Falls NY. With a few microbrew pubs, antique stores and legit old businesses, we took a few hours to walk around and explore. While this vintage sign originally beckoned us, the fact that ABC Restaurant Supply was open to the public was too much to resist.

ABC Restaurant Supply(Looks like this might’ve been a neon sign at one point, still well maintained though!)

Opened in 1945, this the place to explore if you’re looking for gigantic ladles, professional gauge baking sheets (got one!), glasses, plates, trays, bar stools and more. We could not resist picking up a trio of colorful Fiestaware ramekins – so handy for sauces a welcome addition to our Homer Laughlin collection back at the Hacienda. I’m sure the kind gentlemen working there were a bit amused by my oohing and aahing over the cheery colors!

Ah, Fiesta!So if you’re poking around Glens Falls and admiring the old fashioned signage, storefronts and businesses, know that ABC is open Monday – Friday 9am-5pm. I’m sure there’s something there you need/ want.
