I've a bit of a spooky story for you today!
It concerns these two lovely teacups and saucers.
I was in a charity shop in a town I hadn't visited before. I don't know about you, but my routine in charity shops is to quickly scan shelves then explore items that have appealed to me. I had done that and had looked at some cups and saucers, but they weren't my sort of thing, and I only buy things that I really like.
The shop was empty, so I had plenty of time to look and was attracted to some small decorated glasses to my right. At that moment I heard a rattle and strangely enough, my first reaction was - something is trying to attract my attention!
That "something" was the little set I'm, showing you today. The cups were literally rattling in the saucers!!!! Nothing else on the shelf was moving, and there was no one else around the part of the shop I was in!!!
I hadn't noticed them on my first look, and the price was excellent - I immediately took them to the desk and bought them.
When I got home, I noticed that they were "Royal Cauldron" - well, that shook me up a wee bit - who do we usually associate with cauldrons?
Edit - yes, I read this wrong ... oops ... they still rattled, though!
Anyway, I'm glad I got them - I think that they are absolutely lovely.
Needless to say, hubby was less than impressed when I said that they made me buy them!
Have any of you had anything similar happen, or am I the only one with a strange experience in a charity shop?!!!
