Tea Set

If I have a weakness at thrift stores and yard sales - it is certainly dishes.  I have so many lovely sets, and partial sets, and yet I find that I always want to take more  home with me.  This set was at a table at a flea market and it was near the end of the day - so the price was good.  The young lady said everything on the table was 3.00 each - and I questioned her as to whether or not the tea set was 3.00.  She looked a little startled, I don't think she remembered that she still had the tea set, but she said yes.  I ended up giving her 5.00 for it, just seemed right - and even then it was a super bargain.



The set included the teapot, cream and sugar. . .


And six cups and saucers. . .





Won't you stop in for a cup of tea and a cookie?

Such a sweet little set. I completely understand why you had to give her $5.

Oh my! What a fabulous find for $5! You are a lucky girl. The pearly pastels are so romantic, and six ups too! They will be a lovely addition to your collection.
I too, love to find china and bring it home. It is a delightful hobby : )
