    :-D :-D :-D Wow! I seen this tea server set in the Goodwill for weeks and it has the pot & sugar and creamer and the tray. I walked over there this a.m. to get milk and cereal for breakfast at Rite Aid and the Goodwill is next door. It wasn't open as yet but I did see the 50% green tag sale posted so I went into Rite Aid and looked around for 20 minutes and then went back to the Goodwill as I remembered this set having a green tag on it. I was hoping it was still there so I went and sure enough it was still there so I got the whole set for around $20.00 The tea pot itself had a price of over $12 alone before the sale. I got the whole shooten match for $20.00 and here is a before and after picture. It had years of tarnish on it and it does need more work, but got most of it off. I ran out of polish. enjoy, Huggies, Fay
