Garage Sale Goodness: Tea Time

There's nothing more exciting than going to a garage sale, but the New York version takes place on stoops of apartment buildings where residents place their wares out on the sidewalk for sale to the delight of passersby. And for the very first time, I'm participating in a Brooklyn stoop sale on Saturday, August 21 (cross your fingers for good weather) with my amazingly talented pals Heather Kerr and Michael Quinn.

Each day this week I'll share with you a little something that'll be sitting on Heather's stoop, and today starts with this duo of Chinese teapots. While technically not vintage, they are sweet, and hopefully someone will want to take them home. A few years ago I bought these cheery pieces in Chinatown to practice creating floral arrangements for a friend's wedding. Let's just say she decided to hire a florist, but I ended up keeping the pots!

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous!
