The Duck’s Quest for Tea-Gear

As you might have noticed, I have had a strange obsession lately with afternoon teas.  After visiting the tea room an hour from my abode, I wanted very badly to get more dainty plates like they had, and so I went on a hunt.  I already had tea cups, but I still wanted to get delightful plates and one of those tiered trays.  The problem was, when I started looking online, the items I desired were so darn expensive.  Thirty dollars per plate!  I think not!  You offend me, sir!
