My Relay for Life team is doing a craft project for Mother's Day and I need a source for inexpensive teacups and matching saucers that are in perfect condition (no chips, cracks or crazing). All of them do not have to be the same pattern. But I need to find them at a bargain price so that we can keep the cost down. I have already searched ebay. Thanks in advance for your help.

CHECK YOUR LOCAL THRIFT SHOPS
Hi, What are you making with them? Loretta
check your thrift and resale shops and if garage sales have started up in your area, that's another good source. They'd be too expensive on ebay since shipping is also involved.
Go to your local thrift shop!! Ours always has tons of them. I buy them and make indoor wind chimes...
and they are very cheap. I only pay .50 for a cup and saucer.
GoodWill might have several. The cost would be small and it would end up with one group helping another. Good deal!!!
If you have a flea market nearby, you should be able to find plenty there.

I am going to order these for my cousin's bridal shower that we are having (it is a tea party theme and tea cups are the favors) they are cheap at 1.99 each when you buy the case. I hope that helps!
I am planning a wedding shower for my sister, also with a "tea party" theme and I also found the website you posted. However, I couldn't find how much shipping would be for the cups. Do you have any idea what the shipping runs? Have you placed your order yet? Thanks!
I am doing crafts with tea cups and saucers I have been going to a Salvation Army store or Good Will for these items
