K's aunt called up to see if I wanted to go to the flea market on late Sunday morning. I hadn't been to the flea market in years. I don't know why since it is something that I usually like to do. I guess now owning a house the hunt is a bit more fun. The first table I came upon I saw some Corelle coffe cups that caught my eye. It's not really a color or a print that would catch my eye but I did like the shape and the feel of the coffee cups. There were eight of them with saucers. As you can see I also got some plates too. Normally, I would have just kept going but when the owner yelled out that all of it was mine for $2 you can of course see why I couldn't help but to just hand over the money and take my find with me.
I looked on Ebay to see if I could find and recognize this print so I would know what it is called. If it's correct on Ebay this is an "Old Town Blue Onion" print.
The handles on these coffee cups fit my fingers so neatly. I've been needing smaller coffee cups for when I have guests over. K and I have mostly large coffee mugs and they will empty a coffee pot quickly.
I also found this little but deep corningware pan with lid for $3. It has the blue cornflower print on it, which I think is a pretty common print to find. I think I did well at the flea market today.
