It doesn’t happen very often, but every once in a while all my meandering around charity shops really pays off. Recently I managed to purchase this staggering (and oh weren’t we just…poor daughter carried most of it!) collection from Churchill’s discontinued Mille Fleur range.
Since the cheapest price i can find is £2.50 for 1 teacup and saucer on ebay….i think i did rather well getting the whole lot…including a generously sized teapot….for £19.50.
I haven’t had a matching dinner service for over a decade.
I’m chuffed to bits with it! And doubly happy that i got something nice out of contributing towards the Help the Aged Charity.
These are the things that make me happy.
Note to prospective future husband : I am a cheap date (but not a cheap date, if you get what i mean)…take me around Oxfam and Help the Aged for a few hours and i’m a happy happy happy bunny.
