My last thrift shop purchase was this mug.

My eyes were attracted by the bold 80s graphics, and as my hand cupped it, my brain wondered "is this Waechtersbach?"  It was!  And made in "W. Germany."  25 cents.  I have never seen this pattern before.  But I am really digging the primary colours and whimsical design!

Speaking of whimsical, I bought this circa-1977 mug some time ago.
I hadn't seen these "Love is..." comics for quite a while, and the condition was too good to pass up.  Here is a little history of the comic strip.

I'm linking up to Her Library Adventures' Flea Market Finds.  Check it out to see purchases from thrift shops and flea markets around the world.

I had forgotten all about the "Love is..." comic strip. That brought back memories from my late teens and early 20s.

Great cheerful mugs. I think the rainy days one is perfect for the weather we are having now... and will continue to have till Spring!

If you ever don't want that first mug anymore, I could give it a good home!
