{China Beach}

My husband and I were able to take a little get-a-way to the coast 
this past weekend, and although it was very stormy and a time for huddling up
and watching the waves crashing to shore...
we unexpectedly happened upon a rummage sale on our way to grab a coffee in town. 
After fighting the pouring rain and a umbrella that was determined to turn itself inside out 
we entered the building only to find an assortment of unpromising odds and ends
...no treasures in sight!  
But then... as we turned to leave... I noticed two boxes sitting underneath one of the tables
newspaper crumpled over the top 
and a  "$15 for all" price crudely written on one of the flaps.
A sight like that calls to me and I just had to have a peak!

This is what I found...

61 pieces of beautiful china made in Japan!
With this lovely pattern...


 
Score!
I asked if they would take $10 and it was mine!

Sometimes it's those boxes in the back or under the table that hold those treasures..Looks like you hit the jackpot this time!

Oh Carrie! I have come home with these $15.00 boxes of china on many occasions. They are my most favorite boxes to find. What a beautiful set! I love that the edging gives them a modern look. Beautiful! Elizabeth

What a great find! They are beautiful! And, the 10.00 price tag is the best.
