Great Purchases

Remember when I interrupted my Southern Tea Time Getaway posts on June 6th to tell you about Tea by Three's Liquidation Sale?  And I posted photos of items that would be in the sale.  The sale has come and gone, so I'm sharing today what I purchased. Cheryl brought out more items after the pictures from June 6th were posted.

I couldn't resist this Beauty and the Beast teapot with Mrs. Potts and Chip.

Cheryl gave me the fan below for my presentation collection.

When I learned she had put out more items I returned the day before her sale and purchased a few more things.  Cheryl always prices things to go, so whatever you buy is a bargain, but these Royal Albert bone china snack sets in the Heirloom pattern were practically a give away.  I purchased them to use at my Bible study luncheons.  They were $32 for a set of four.  When I got home I went online to see if I could purchase one more because when everyone attends there's five of us.  I was shocked to see that just one snack set lists for $60!

They are absolutely beautiful.  Two of my friends went to the preview sale the day before me and spent over $700 between them.  I couldn't believe they left these behind, but I'm glad they did! ;-)

I also bought a Shelley teacup for $10.

And last but not least two lovely white linen aprons for my apron collection.

Have you found any new treasures lately?


  1. Wow, you did indeed find some treasures! I love those snack sets and they are "your" colors, too. Everything you got is wonderful, and I'm glad these items have new homes with you.

  2. I am drooling over those snack sets. Absolutely gorgeous.

  3. Lovely purchases.

  4. What great finds! When I was in Frazier I found a Mrs. Potts large teapot for $10.00 And a Cheshire Cat teapot for $3.00! I couldn’t resist! I have some of those cute beverage covers I made years ago.

  5. Oh my Phyllis, what wonderful deals you got!! Those snack set were indeed such treasures. I don't have any Shelley teacups, and yours is a beauty.

  6. Love the strainer on the right! Beautiful.
