Isn't it fun to find treasures? Last week our family took some time away as my son was off for Spring Break. We traveled to the mountains of West Virginia, and then on to North Carolina. While my hubby was in meetings my daughter and I explored some Antique Malls in New Bern. And of course we came away with some treasures.

I love these Syracuse cups. I collect made in USA dinnerware, and these have such a lovely pink floral design.

I was only going to buy two, but when we were checking out, the owner said "wait" and she brought out two more and gave them to me, no additional charge :-) So all four were had to $2.

On this trip, I was on the look out for a specific item. This item!!

I've looked for a scale in other places, but they were always too pricey or in terrible condition. This one was in my price range. So it came home with me.
I am joining Coloradolady this week for Vintage Thingie Thursday.

Your cups and the scale are treasures for sure. I know you had a grand time with your son as well.
