I tried my hand at Freecycle yesterday, when an alert came through for a box of unwanted china. After an exchange of emails and a brief visit to a very charming lady, I came home with lots of pale pink vintage china, absolutely free!
I already had some oddments of old pink and white china with roses which came from a table-top sale last year.
and a cake stand I bought recently from a car boot for two pounds. The white lace table mat was an accidental find from eBay (I thought it was going to be the size of a dinner plate!!)
I'll be needing somewhere to store my precious finds, so have posted a request on Freecycle. I wonder if my luck will hold up?
