Thrifty Finds

Thrifty Finds
I got all of these items a while ago...

The story that goes with these cups is they came to the US
on the lap of an elderly woman from Greece
many years ago

When they came into the thrift store I knew I had to have them
especially 12  for $10

I love these birds
I got them for $1

The Mikasa bowl was a $1 as well

The Christmas cup .50

  1. My first visit, I love those cups, very unique.
    Thanks for sharing. Stop by for a visit sometime.

  2. Oh such great bargains! I love the story of the teacups!

  3. I love the little square bases on your cups. They are adorable and I love that you know their story!

  4. Hi Jo! Happy New Year!
    I love all of your thrifted finds. Isn't it fun when we track down things that remind of us of our childhood and the past?

    You asked me a question on my blog about the snowflakes in my window and whether they are paper or not. Actually, they are bottle brush snowflakes that I found in a gift shop in my small town and snapped up.

    We need something pretty to get us through the long days of winter, right?

    Thanks for visiting!
    Linda :-)

  5. What unusual cups! I've never seen a square bottom like that. No wonder you had to have them. It's nice they have a story too!

  6. What elegant cups and saucers ... You were definitely in the right place at the right time! And knowing their history makes them even more special.

  7. Jo... lovely story about the cups.. I love the square bases! We thrifters are keeping the economy going for sure!

    New Year Blessings. Dixie
