Teacup Bargain Shopping in Windsor


Yesterday's post to Gracious Hospitality's Blog-a-Thon about thrift store shopping for teacup trios in England brought back memories of my trip to London with "tea ladies" last March. The photo above is me standing in front of a thrift store in Windsor with a big smile on my face because one of those bags is holding 5 inexpensive matching English china tea trios. I love the colors and floral design on these trios, also pictured above. My friend and roommate, Nancy, took this photo. She was happy to find bargain tea trios at the same thrift shop to use in her PA tearoom.

Your collection is very nice. I only have two trios in my blue and white collection.

This is one of the prettiest trios I've ever seen. Lucky you, "thrifting" in England!
