it is a shame when you stumble on an estate sale ON YOUR STREET on the second day, but it is truly wonderful to find sumthin like this for $6.25 (50% off original price!) ...
once we got it home, we started to clean it and discovered that the puttycoloured paint was latex, so we scrubbed the paint off and have the perfect addition to our kitchen.
okay, so i have a tea thang and per page, "it is coming out of the yingyang", but dang, what a perfect official teaspot this is. the oriental tin was $2 and now holds my gunpowder tea.
oh, and the signage was found at a 9am estate sale for one quarter (before the aforementioned estate sale opened), so this corner was cozied for $6.50, plus some elbow grease.
