Royal Albert English Chintz Teapot

Angela at Tea With Friends posted on Monday of this week about finding this beautiful Royal Albert 100th Anniversary Series tea pot set at an amazing bargain price of less than $20.  Angela's photos are fantastic and her post is a great read.

On Tuesday morning I drove to Lexington to a doctor's appointment.  After the appointment I stopped by Home Goods.  My heart did a little flip-flop when I spied two of these teapot, cream and sugar sets on a bottom shelf behind  a bunch of glassware.  I held my breath as I carefully picked up this beautiful box and looked at the price on the bottom.  After having read about Angela's bargain find, of a $300 tea set for less than $20, I was a little disappointed when the price was marked $39.99.  I debated a bit, but concluded it was coming home with me at that price.  The beautiful tea set would be perfect on my tea table and the adorable round box is perfect place to store my Kentucky Derby hat. 

It's amazing how the teapot lover's mind works when trying to justify the purchase of a new teapot! 

P.S. Thanks Angela for posting the details of this beautiful teapot on Monday!

Oh my, you got a beautiful hatbox with your set, and I definitely would have paid that for it! (And besides, I was using two gift certificates, so you actually got a better deal than I did if you think about it!) Great find!

Great price! I don't think we have a Home Goods around here.

After Angela's comment here, I feel really great about my purchase! Now, I wonder why I didn't buy the 2nd set?!? *LOL*

Great buy... I bet you'll love that set just as much as if it was $20. And, besides, you got the hat box to boot.
