Originally, I picked up these rather large tea and toast sets at Goodwill in Rome over the weekend and put them back down. But then I thought, oh heck, it's less than $5 for the whole set, so I might as well get them.
They're marked "546 Rosita" and are probably Japanese, which is not my favorite type of teaware, but still, I can see these coming in handy someday, and I figured I would regret not getting them more than I would regret getting them! Besides, as I told my husband, one day, I may need to loan them to my friend who had the tea party at the nursing home and recently borrowed all the tea and toast sets from me. I'm not sure he bought it, but I really did take that into consideration when I made my purchase!
The more I looked at them, the more they grew on me.
It still kills me, though, that Goodwill packages these items separately. The four plates with indentations were $2.92.
And the four cups were $1.91. They cleaned up beautifully, and at $1.21 per tea and toast set, I figure I can't complain!
