Teatime Metal Sculpts

As I was leaving my subdivision on Saturday to do some errands, I spotted a yard sale sign.  I thought, why not check it out.  I’m glad I did because I found a couple of tea theme items, as well as a lovely Princess crystal footed bowl, Charles Swindoll book, feather shaped brooch, shells, etc.

The box said they were by Michael Alan Designs, A Division of Intercontinental Art, Inc and the tag was from Garden Ridge.

These will probably be used to adorn a wall in my sunroom.  There was also a cute little stick pin that was made by Avon.

Another great item I snapped up was a black metal three tier stand that can hold dinner size plates, or even larger platters.  It will come in handy for those large tea parties or holiday entertaining.

Now for the best part – all these items cost me under $10.

Wow, great deals! I love that little Avon pin, I almost just bought one on ebay... for $12, plus $5 shipping! Boy, how come I never find good stuff like this at the garage sales around here? You must have eagle eyes!
Have a great day!

I wish I could find such a great deal(s). I have heard of the tea pot Avon pin but had not seen it until now.

I like that cup with the swirly steam coming out of it. That's kind of a modern-art piece and not too feminine like tea art can often be. --Teaternity
