Flea Market: Molly's Tea Set

On Saturday DH and I went to a few Flea Markets with the In laws. Whenever we go, I've made it my personal mission to find items for my American Girl dolls, usually without much success. Never had I actually found an AG item. When I was just about to give up, imagine my surprise when I looked down to find Molly's Tea Set. I literally gasped- and I'm not the type to go around gasping. (Though I am the type to mutter to myself in public, a habit I really need to break so people don't think I'm crazier than I am.)

The silverware and napkins weren't included, but it had the creamer and sugar bowl, which are no longer sold by AG. The price? $12. Yup, I was pretty excited.

So today I finally got the chance to clean them up and practice macro photography for the blog. There are some minor imperfections on most of the pieces.

I'm not sure how normal that is or not. Also, I noticed there were no markings to say it was from American Girl, Pleasant Company, or even where they were made. I think some versions might have some of these? I'm not positive though.

Overall, I'm very pleased. Now I just want the silverware, napkins, and the birthday cake!
