My Weekend Haul...

DD and I happened upon a great Estate Sale on Friday and picked up some goodies!  I collect China Snack sets (they are going to come in handy one day when it is Bridal Luncheon time!!!) I am so excited to score some new pieces for my collection. 

 I got these 4 Lefton snack sets for $7.00.(available at Replacements, Ltd. for $14.99 each)  They are some of my favorites because the inside of each cup is a beautiful pastel that reminds me of dyed Easter eggs. 


I also got 2 more beautiful snack sets with 2 additional snack plates for a whopping $2.00 for all 6 pieces (available at Replacements, Ltd. for $23.99 each ) 

The Reed & Barton 104 bowl was my big splurge, at $10. When I went to this Estate Sale on the first afternoon it was marked $20.00 but when I went by on the second afternoon it was down to $10.00 so I took it home!  (available at Replacements, Ltd. for $31.99)

So for a mere $19.00, I feel like I got quite a bargain for some gorgeous and unique pieces! 



Doing the frugalista happy dance!

I did not know about snack plate china. Is it the size of a salad plate, and you have a teacup with it? Interestiing. I love china, too.

Lori said...

we have crummy estate and garage sales in Arizona. Must be lack of basements and attics.

Boy Michelle, you sure did better than I did this weekend at an estate sale. I walked out without anything, nothing even tempting. Of course I love your luncheon sets and if you need somewhere to store them I've got just the right space.

Jennifer @ Just Peachy in Dixie said...

Those are just beautiful! I agree, I just love the pastel insides. It just adds to the charm.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm glad you're enjoying the series! ;)

Have a great day,

I love that white teacup with the pink interior. So pretty.

Thanks so much for the lovely comment on my blog by the way. That is a truly wonderful thing that you have been married 22 years! And, I also swoon over ruffles, organza, and anything bridal. :)

Maybe one of these days, I can figure out how to become a wedding guest for hire, so that I can attend all these pretty events. :)

Hope you have a great week as well, Michelle!
