Terrific Thrifty Teaset....

As I have told you often... there is only one thrift store within walking distance of our home.. and its not the best. So.. my lovely hubby decided to take me to a Salvation Army store in the next city. He had an ulterior motive because there was a premium car wash next door..but we will skip that point!
Anyway... I wasnt expecting much... but as I rummaged... I found a pretty teacup and saucer and on another shelf.. a stack of matching fruit dishes. It had the prettiest pattern in Fall colours. I pondered for a second then decided to take the cup and saucer to add to my teacup collection
As I waited for the lady to come to the checkout.. I tried to look at the clutter on the shelves behind the counter... and to my surprise... I thought I saw another matching teacup. When the lady moved some items...low and behold.. there were more.. and a couple of matching saucers.  As she put them on the counter she said... wait a second.. and went into the back room. She reappeared with a stack of little plates...and a milk jug. I broke into a big smile...and rushed to retrieve the little fruit dishes.
And how much did this little treasure cost? An unbelievable $2.50. It may not be a full set but I couldnt be more pleased. Now Im on the look out for a matching sugar bowl

    1. I had to leave my teacup collection in the Uk when I moved to the US three years ago.. so Im starting to collect again. They are hard to find in thrift shops where I live x
