Antique French Egg Cups-Thrifty Style Team Grand Home Decor Giveaway

Please note that this post contains affiliate links. As an Amazon Associate, Rewards Style influencer and Jane Influencer, we earn from qualifying purchases and any sales made through such links will reward us a small commission – at no extra cost for you.

Our good fortune is soon to be your reward. We found these beautiful antique french egg cups on a recent thrifting trip.

Actually we found the antique french egg cups in a home decor consignment shop. We had never visited this particular store before. The shop was filled with furniture, artwork, decorative accessories, kitchen appliances, dishes and other household items. Individuals bring their unwanted wares to the shop to be sold and split a commission with the shop owner. For every 30 days that their items are not sold, the price decreases each month for a total of 6 months. At that time the owner can pick up their unsold item or it is donated to an organization of the store owners choice.
