I had to weigh the pros and cons of adding weight to my bag for the trip and decided I could afford to take at least two mugs/cups. Thought it would be good for my daughter to have some connection so I took her birthday Princess cup. Choosing mine was a bit more difficult and had two cups that were gifts from learners etc. Finally decided on the mug I got in my swap - it was a Coffee Swap. Had my favorite color blue and good memories attached to it and I liked its design.
My most priced cups are sitting at the moment in a box in Cape Town. They are British China cups that used to belong to my Grandma. At one stage a shop in South Africa was selling one cup and saucer for R150.00. There are not any brand names on them so their value is unlikely to increase. Just love to have an English tea party with them again (even though I prefer coffee - LOL).
