A while ago, the thrift store near us needed to clear out some space, so they offered everything in the whole store for 50% off. I got this set of Royal Albert "Celebration" china for a pittance, and was delighted when I came home and found out that just one teacup goes for more than I paid for the whole set! However, I have no intention of selling, as I think the set is so pretty. I think I will save it until my daughter is grown up and has a house of her own.
Here is a close-up of the pretty teacup. This pattern dates back to 1969, so it is not an antique, but it does have a nice, vintage look.
This is the creamer and sugar basin. I think I will have to keep my eye out for the teapot next! It is always fun to have something to look for.
