Chai tea and Turkish Tea cups

I went to a huge yardsale this past Saturday at West Point Military Academy. I had big expectations for this sale because so many of the officers are stationed throughout the world and you never know what kind of international treasure you will find or at least hope to find!
After passing home after home of the typical kids toys and clothes I found these. I was intrigued by the little cups with the underplates. The seller told me that she was stationed in Turkey and when you go into the little shops you are given a cup of very hot chai tea in these little cups. (Isn't that a nice custom?) The tea is so hot that you hold it by the underplate. The Turks like their tea sweet and with each cup came a tiny spoon and each had a different pattern. I asked the price and she said, " two dollars for the lot" and I said, "Sold"!
So, I am now going to enjoy my "little glasses of hot chai tea in authentic Turkish chai glasses."
I love yardsales, you never know what treasure you will find.
P.S. The other items shown my Mom bought, English chintz cup and saucer and two coffee cups and I also found 2 bone plates. I'll be posting more of my finds later this week.

What is your best yardsale find? I would love to hear! Mary

Mary these are fabulous!!! One for how neat they look but also the history behind them. And to think you got them all for only $2 is a wonderful find. I would love to go to a sale at West Point. What a fun day!!! RJ

Mary - found you through Rhoda, and so glad I did! I LOVE LOVE LOVE those teacups, and for $2! What a find! I haven't had much luck at yardsales for quite sometime, but I did find a great old railroad cart and tolix stool for free once when a friend was trying to get rid of some stuff at a building they bought at an auction! They're prized possessions to me! :)

I think one of the best yard sale finds was a mirror I paid #25.00 for and sold on ebay for $350.00. When I went to bed I hadn't looked at my auction. In the morning when I booted up my computer I nearly fell off my chair!

That was about money. For me, I would have to say that the $5.00 I paid for a completely hand-embroidered in pink rosebuds afghan has given me the most pleasure and happiness. As someone who has worked with my hands, I know the work that someone put into the blanket. It's a treasure and a precious addition to my bedroom decor.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://viagra.opuskali.ru]Viagra Super Active[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.

My sis informed me about your web site and how great it is.
She’s right, I am really impressed with the writing and slick design.
It seems to me you’re just scratching the floor by way of what you possibly can accomplish, but you’re off to an awesome start!
