Hurry! Get there before it's too late!

Our local, fairly new, Antique mall is closing it's doors. next week. Everything is at least 50% off. So of course I HAD to stop in. And I think I did pretty good. I only wish I had had more time to look a little longer.................but I'm going back for sure. My best and favorite find of all! This is the prettiest cup. And it's "Occupied Japan" $5.00



This was by far the best deal of all. It was so gross when I bought it I wasn't sure if it would clean up, well as you can see it sure did! $17.50!!!!! And it's extra big- I'll need a larger glass insert all of mine are too small.
This is my second favorite find. Only $12.50. It has a small hairline crack at the top, but it doesn't leak. I made a pot of green tea in it yesterday and it held up beautifully.

This dish was $10.00, but it's a really nice size and is just so pretty.
This sweet little piece was $6.38, and it detaches from the base!

There are some lovely things that I'd love to go back for. Lovely handkerchiefs, embroidered tablecloths, pictures, china, well you get the picture. Just plain old good deals!

You certainly have an eye for beautiful things. Your purchases are great. The teacup and other china is so pretty and what a deal on the silver.

You got some great finds! I haven't had time to go there in a while (believe it or not!) and couldn't believe it is closing!

Darling you did well with these purchases. They got them at an incredible price, I am proud of you. You should go back and clean this place out!! Luv, I am so glad to see that you are up and blogging. I was worried about you, life goes on and we need a little distraction anyway. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Take care and have a fantastic day!!

Ohhh, I wish I could go to that antique store!

Thanks for your comment on my tablescape! I went to TJ Maxx today and saw the blue dishes, and also aqua. I haven't seen them in green or cream though.
