Junk-Shop Irish Lead Crystal

I was poking around my local Goodwill a few months ago, looking for ... whatever (sometimes it pays to keep an open mind). This little creamer-and-sugar-bowl set caught my eye:

It looked well made, so I flipped it over to see if I could find a maker's mark. Sure enough, there it was: can you see it? It says "Galway"--a well known Irish manufacturer of fine crystal.

For some reason, I didn't even notice the sticker on the side of each piece until after I turned them upside down. Ha!

I already have a crystal sugar-and-creamer set that I love. So I filled this set with some candies...

...and then gave them to Lovely Daughter #1 as a little "just-because" gift.

And they cost me less than $8, for the two of them! Junking and crystal and a bargain and a gift for somebody I love. It doesn't get much better than that!
