Goodwill Find of the Week: Creative Tops Mugs


 
         ONE MAN'S TRASH IS ANOTHER MAN'S TREASURE

 

"I absolutely adore white dinnerware. I love the look and the feel of it. It makes any home-cooked meal look like it was made at a five star restaurant". 

Liza Cardona

 

While most people believe white dishes are boring I find then extremely appealing. Many chefs prefer white plates because white goes with anything, makes the food “pop” visually and allows for a more diverse meal presentation.
I've been collecting white dinnerware over the years. The most unique pieces have been have been found at local Goodwill's or antique shops. I have several vintage pieces that I rotate and display around the house depending on the season of the year. The good thing about white dinnerware is that it goes well with any type of decor. 

In an effort to stand by one of my new year's resolution (live simply and never beyond my means), I went to my local Goodwill store in hopes to find a dresser that I could paint for one of my kids rooms. Furniture's re-do has become a new obsession of mine but that is a completely different post ;D

Unfortunately, I couldn't find a dresser I like, however, just before I was about to leave these mugs caught my eye.

They are from Creative Tops , one of the UK's leading suppliers and manufacturers of quality design-led tableware and giftware. Creative Tops is the proud custodian for some of the UK’s foremost heritage brands including the Victoria and Albert Museum and The Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew. 

Apparently, these mugs are from a previous collection since I can't seem to be able to trace them online.

I love the farmhouse feel of the mugs. They blend perfectly with my existing collection of dinnerware. I can't wait until my next brunch and use them. I think I need to buy a farmhouse to complete the look. Ha!


So what do you think? Did a score or not? Are the mugs a yayy or nayy? Let us know by posting in the comments section below.
