A box lot of delight!

Saturday I went to an estate sale.  No big deal.  I was there about a month ago, but they seemed to be getting desperate to get rid of the stuff.  This time they had box lots of items.  I was attracted to a box lot of glassware, and in particular one tiny, heart-shaped cup.  (This must be my month for box lots.)


Isn't it darling?  The person who owned it must have loved tiny cups.  There were five of them in the box.  Sadly, one of the prettiest ones, with an old rose pattern, was badly chipped.  It's going into the trash.  : (

Here are the four of five items that were worth keeping.


They're all tiny and all delightful.

What's going to happen to the rest of the box lot?  (Which contained a couple of glasses, a few tea light holders, some badly chipped salt dabs, a St. John Fisher mug, a shot glass, and a small wire basket from The Dollar Store?  It's going into the catch-and-release plan (to steal a phrase from the Yard Sale Bloodbath blog), that is--I'll put them in my own yard sale later this summer.
