While out and about on the weekend I purchased some more cups, saucers and side plates.
I got two of these along with two dinner plates and a bowl for $5. As the woman said the plates and bowl could be used at Christmas? I love the colour red but am not overly fond of these...but do agree that I could use the plates and bowl at Christmas.
I got a great deal on the following sets. I paid 75 cents for a set (cup, saucer and side plate). I got four of the sets in the background, and six sets in the foreground.
I paid $10 for this whole set. I didn't really want all the pieces, but it also included the platter and milk jug and I know I can use the rest of the things at the baby shower.
Here is a closer view of the pattern on the cups.
I have been on the look out for a pair of sugar tongs, but not in silver, as I wanted to use them to pick up slices of lemon for the tea. No one really keeps or sells them anymore. I called in at "From the Kitchen to the Table," in Orangeville and they had a pair, and they cost less than $4 and are perfect for what I want.
They have a lot of really good quality things in there and a lot of different things. I need to pop back in there when I have more time for a really good look around.
