Yard Sale Finds: Ceramic Tea Kettle and Saké Cups (Treasure Hunt Thursday)

My yard sale adventures take me to random locations between here (Lebanon, Oregon), Corvallis, Eugene, Albany and ever some over in Salem, Oregon.  I find random things from old 45s to broken chairs that just need a bit of love, but nothing compared to what I found yesterday.  Fridays are normally the best day to find some of the goods that most people don't want, don't care for, or discard because they don't know their worth.  This beauty was one for the books.


How amazing is this?  It's a tea set by the company of Bombay® and the cups and tea kettle are in perfect condition.  I paid $5, but after doing some internet homework I found a few being sold anywhere from $25 (without the cups) to $1,220 for the full set.  Score!






I thought about making some tea in it and having a moment with it, but I think I would rather just let it sit on my table so I can admire it a lot longer before using it. 

To see other great treasures take a few minutes to check out the other links that were shared over at From My Front Porch To Yours.
