Teapot Tuesday features a great little bargain teapot that I found at the ReStore in Brevard. Aaron and I visited when he was here and we were doing some remodel work on the bathroom in the apartment over the garage. Unfortunately they did not have any of the supplies we needed for that project but I found this little cutie for $5.
Look at this cute little globe. Doesn’t it just fit perfectly with the book theme?
Thrift shop finds are the best way to add to any collection. It means not a lot of money is invested and if the thrift shop is like ReStore it helps others in some way. Seems to me that it is a win win.
“When I am at my work each day
In the fields so fresh and green
I often think of riches and the way things might have been
But believe me when I tell you when I get home each day
I’m as happy as a sandboy with my wee cup of tay”

Oh, that is adorable! My sister would have loved that: she was an avid reader and a library resource “technician”. And your washstand is beautiful: I love old oak furniture!
It’s perfect for any book lover, right? We have a lot of antiques in our home that came from Chris’s family. This washstand is one of my favorites as well. It is in really good shape and Chris’s dad did a nice job of refinishing it. Thanks, Dianna.
I can hear that teapot calling your name all the way in Mooresville!
It spoke very loudly and clearly.
Yay!!!! Score! Luv those thrift shops!!
They are the best!
Now that is a teapot with character!!! I must admit that I might have to follow that path this morning. I am on summer break, so I can indulge that sinus headache of mine, curl up on the couch, and tear into “Circe” again this morning. I may jump into some red tea later (this is my favorite!), but this morning, I had to be true to inner voice and have my hot cup of coffee! Now that I’ve had that fix, I know the morning will be a brighter place!
Renee, it is a really fun teapot and I am with you. Coffee in the morning first thing and then I gradually transition to tea. Although right now I am drinking more iced tea than hot but that’s okay!
Oh my goodness, girl, you DO find the cutest teapots! This one is just perfect for the tea/book lover you are (and me too!). And at $5, what a steal. 🙂
I know! Isn’t this one just the best? Thrift shops are the best source sometimes!
I love thrift stores for the reasons you list: save money and help others.
Yep–and just the perfect place to find an unexpected find.
What a sweet teapot. I too love thrift shops. It is amazing what you can find. It looks so perfect on the antique washstand.
Very cute tea pot. I love browsing thrift stores!
Thanks– I love it! Thrift shops are THE best places!
So adorable. I love Restores and Goodwill. It’s always fun to browse through and see what you can find.
Aren’t they the best places to find things? Even if I am not looking for anything in particular I love to just see what there is to be had.
That teapot is so very special. I love it and thrift stores.
Thanks for stopping by, Shirley. Thrift stores are the absolute best place to find teapots I have found. Who would have thought there were so many to be found?
Thrift stores are a great places to get books too!
