CS bargains

The other day when I went into Largs I decided to have a mooch around the charity shops after all you never know what you'll uncover. Well I think I hit gold, I've been looking for some teacups to make candles....
6 place Duchess teaset £6
Another 6 place set £4.99
Lovely gold and white set £4.99
And finally 3 more lovely cups and saucers £1

Think I'll sell some of it as china trios but definately plan to make at least 8-10 candles ready for Mothers day.  Now just need to order some wax..

Such wonderful bargains, particularly like the second set. Our local charity shop was selling ONE teacup, its saucer and a small plate for a ridiculous £7.

Excellent finds :) I've been hunting out odd cups/saucers for some pincushions I've been making.

Lovely to see some full sets too - they are hard to find.

What wonderful patterns! I can't decide which is my favourite. I kept a few trios back last year and gave them as gifts to my friends - they were delighted!

Looking forward to seeing your candles.

Glad you liked the bag! I had some lady birds too, they were yummy!

The fabric is from this range
