Re-Ment miniature Hazel Atlas Ripple

I've seen pictures of these miniatures online for probably 5 years now, but I only very rarely buy anything online ever. So these sweet miniatures went on the back burner.

But mine and my husband's anniversary was coming up and I wanted him to order me something I wouldn't normally buy for myself, but was still thrifty enough that we'd still have all our pennies and dimes to spend on his week-long vacation, which would hopefully include trips to antique stores we'd never been to before.

So these Re-Ment figures suited me just perfectly. Here's the box:






and the contents:


(had to include the little foldout booklet!)

And here they are, stacked up sweetly. So cute! And really well done for such tiny things.


And here they are, worked in with my Fire King and the actual-sized Hazel Atlas Ripple.


The best scale shots I managed to get out of my wildly out of date camera (that also hates my dark house).





I am attempting to refrain from trying to buy a whole stack of these dishes to match my hoard stack of their real life counterparts. They are just so cute and precious.

There are other odds and ends in these sets that I want too. Mostly the pieces that resemble Pyrex bowls and Fire King mugs. I don't know if that will happen anytime soon, but there's always Christmas :-)


As for our actual anniversary, we had a good time going outside our normal areas to shop. Found some incredibly expensive stores, expensive furniture and of course, expensive Pyrex. I bought a few pieces that complete (or nearly-so) patterns for me, so I'll get around to posting them in another post.


Hope you're finding thrifty treats and treasures!

Happy Thrifting!

  2. Can you post a link to where you bought that particular item? All I'm finding is blind boxes and I don't want to buy it and get something I don't want. Thank You!

    1. My husband bought this set on ebay, so it's not so much a link as it is just finding a seller with a price you're willing to pay. Be aware some sellers are overseas, so I don't know how that would affect shipping. I think my husband did a buy it now from a seller in the US and got it for less than 20 dollars, shipping and all. You might find an ever better deal. Just search for the Tea Time Collection, this is number 12 of that series, Flower Field.
