I know I've said it before...I have a love-hate relationship with eBay! I find it so frustrating to find something that I love at a great price and then have it snatched away from me at the last minute!!! So awhile back I ended my relationship with eBay but I couldn't stay away for long and boy am I glad I didn't give up on it all together! See that chintz cup above? It's an old James Kent cup and saucer and the pattern is called Du Barry. I got an amazing deal on this. It was less than $3.00!!! The shipping was $10.00 because it came from Scotland but still $13.00 for a vintage chintz cup, that's unheard of! Back in the 90s when everyone was collecting chintz this would have probably cost over $100! The prices have come down since then but you really can't find one anywhere around here for $13.00!

Pin It Now!
That was a good deal but this was the icing on the cake!!! I got 6 Cambridge water glasses in the Portia pattern for $34.00. I've seen one of these glasses selling for close to this price and I got 6! I told this seller that I feel like I stole these and that I would give them a little free advertising so click here to see their eBay store.
I'll be using these glasses for a Sunday brunch I'm having at my place this weekend! I think they will add a lot of elegance to my table!
See the beautiful shells in the photo above? (you can click on the photo to enlarge it) Those were the gift that Shari and Debbie sent me from Florida. They also sent a beautiful embroidered tea towel.
