Maybe about a year ago I saw dashing Mister Pepper and dainty Mrs Salt Eggcup somewhere online, quite possibly on an American thrifty blog. I remember having a heart-throb moment then too - just like when I spotted them in my local Red Cross store the other day. I love the quirky idea of them but most of all the style of illustration and the colours.
They are from the 1960s, they were made in Japan and all I had to part with for my pair was seventy-five cents. I didn't realize before getting to the checkout but there was a 50% off sale on all kitchenware and bric-a-brac that day. Half off is always double the thrifty luck!
I'm sharing my bargainous finds on my favourite link-ups:
