Thrift Store Score: Tea Set!

I've been pretty dissapointed with the selection in the thrift shops here on the Big I- they are the worst combination: expensive & stuffed with plastic junk, pilled sweaters and sadly dogeared romance novels. But, I'm a diehard thrifter and I still pop in from time to time. And this time, I was rewarded. Remember that teaparty I've been fantasizing about?


Looks like it just got a lot fancier! (I thought y'all would get a kick out of the packing tape job the volunteers at the Salvation Army did on this baby. Can you believe there were seven cups and saucers, a creamer AND a teapot in there? Impressive fellas. ) One of my favorite things about thrifting is rescuing something from the oblivion of a landfill. It's wonderful to know that this little set will have a second life in my home and will be enjoyed by my girlfriends and I on my sunny little porch instead of sitting on some musty shelf. I'm so looking forward to all the daintiness.

Have you had any great scores lately?

My favorite find was at Bear Lake, ID last summer: 10 plates, 10 saucers, 10 desert bowls, 6 punch glasses, and 1 one tray, plus some cloth placemats and napkins, for $15$. I almost died. Perfect condition, too!
