Antique Fair Goodness

This past weekend, an antique fair was held for a local charity fund raiser.  It is one of two that happen here each year and I always plan to attend.  This year I managed to find a few interesting things.  Not like I need another cup and saucer set.......but this one was very different......and different is good....isn't it?  Also the fact that it was only marked at $9 made it hard to pass up.....honestly, I didn't try very hard....so I bring you........my latest cup and saucer purchase.  TADA!!!!!!  Yes it is very GAZONGA........but it's also pretty unique, I think, as well.
Then not a few steps away at another table I spotted a cream and sugar set from a Royal Winton breakfast set (for only $10) that caught my eye.  You see, I bought this breakfast set in a pattern that my gramma K had dishes  in........(it's just one of those china patterns that I feel nostalgic about) and the set was incomplete.  Well after a few years I've come to the conclusion that I'm never going to find proper replacements for it as the pattern is just not common enough.  So I have been on the lookout for a toast rack and creamer that would blend in without too much conflict.  The shade of yellow in the set is quite pale so it's not going to be easy, but it will be possible.  Well, the job just got a little easier, as I think that this new (for me) little creamer will do the trick......and I think that the creamer (since it has more decorated area on it) was the tougher task to replace.  I do believe it is the best I'll be able to do anyway......and I don't think it's too distracting.......do you???
So, now the search continues for a suitable toast rack to finish the set..........and then........I can use it:)  If you see a little toast rack from a Winton breakfast set....let me know.....see how lonely the set is without one:(
Happy Spring:)

I liked very much your findings. The teacup is really different. I have never seen something like that!

Good Luck finding the tray to match the tea set.
