Chip ‘n’ dip

I always wanted a chip ‘n’ dip of my very own, but could never find the right one until I spotted this beauty at the thrift store.

While standing in line, another customer admired my chip ‘n’ dip & as luck would have it, there was another one EXACTLY LIKE IT on the shelf. What are the chances? She ran back and snapped it up.

I considered purchasing the pair, but why be greedy? The moral of the story is: when you see someone without any kitsch, give them one of yours.

    That’s an excellent ending to the story. Though I doubt I would’ve have the strength to leave one set there. I always think about something breaking and that I have a spare back it up. But very noble of you!

    This is really exceptional looking. Anything with diamond shapes, especially in purple and orange, is always going to take the cake, or in this case, chip.

    I have several chip and dip double decker serving pieces similar to this but none with as stunning an imprint.

    How large is the bottom bowl?

    Aw, thanks! I figured sharing my good fortune with another thrift shopper was my good deed for the day. :)

    I just took a look, and the bottom bowl is about 6″ high and 10.5″ across. The orange color is kinda weird, like a deep pink/orangey color.

    I’m getting hungry just looking at this picture. I think tonight I need some ruffly potato chips and clam dip.
