a mammoth teaset
this gazillion piece tea set is being sold in a charity store here in my area...and strangely i had such a kak day that i thought that only a vintage floral tea set would cheer me up. so i stopped and parked when i did a drive by past one of my favourite charity stores because low and behol, i saw a vintage floral tea set in their window. it was even more beautiful than it had first appeared. i saw a price and thought that was it (r350) but...every piece was priced, making the whole set a total of r900. and guess what? you can't buy pieces separately. so, a set they got for free, will now set you back r900..hmm. that's even more than the antique store next door would sell it at. ya, but this is cape town, where ''''''charity'''' store owners have taken it upon themselves to just sommer sell their free stuff at mammoth prices. milnerton market have been doing this for the last two years or so too. well good luck to them all. i did love this tea set so much though.
