Toy Tea Set





Hello friends....I hope your day is wonderful. Our days here have gone from freezing temps with ice...to sun shiny days....to today which is cloudy with rain. On one of those pretty days, I ventured out with my daughter to shop for groceries,etc. While out and about we stopped by a favorite mall....I can't really call it an antique mall anymore because these days they carried so much more...new,bout new,used ,abused and revamped :)  A bit of crafts and clothing as well. Its still fun to look about though. I had to skip the upstairs,which my daughter said was mostly clothing. Anyway, I found an antique toy tea set,which when I got it home and took it had of its boxes,which were original by the way....turned out to be two tea sets. One still packed safely in the straw,which once was the way for packing and shipping all dishes and breakable items. That was what appealed to me the most about my purchase,and the price which was under $5.00. The original price on the boxes was a mere .25 cents.



Twas, my only purchase...this and two vintage style greeting cards.

Toy Tea Set Made in Japan



I hope you have enjoyed seeing my new (old) toy tea sets...maybe some of the dolls will have a tea party soon with them....blessings

Dear Shelley ... such sweet little tea sets! It is always so fun to find little treasures that are so affordable. Our weather sounds much the same as yours. We have had frigid temps and snow ... yesterday was sunny and 66 degrees ... today a bit overcast and 40 degrees. I think warming a bit tomorrow. We just take each day as it comes. Weekend Blessings ♥ Teri

Darling tea sets! and at such a good price too. You always seem to find the coolest stuff.
Our weather here is warm and sunny today. In the high 70s. We planted beets and peas in our raised beds this morning.
