It seems that my last few jaunts to the thrift shops have left me either empty handed or at least with nothing really worth mentioning - until now! Take a looky here, ladies. I just got this entire silver coffee and tea serving set with a footed tray for a mere $14.99!
Sure, it's dusty and tarnished, but can't you see the diamond in the rough?
The handle to the teapot was missing, but I found it inside the teapot. My hubby knows a place that will solder it back on for just a couple of bucks.
Just a little elbow grease and tarnish remover and Ta-Da! Better than new. I wouldn't be this excited if I got it new.
Can you believe it, it doesn't end there. Here's a beautiful blue and white ironstone bowl that I got for 99 cents! I'll be using this to serve fresh strawberries.
Now, let's throw in these never-been-used cloth napkins at 5 for a dollar.
But wait, can it be? More deals? Why yes, 5 of these beauties for 50 cents a piece. Can't you just picture a blue and white tablescape happening here? Stay tuned for more Fab Finds at the Lace and Ivy Cottage!
