I recently wrote a review on these cups because the "1 Whole cup" portion broke and I was very sad (It was a gift so no receipt). I called Anthropologie to see if I could purchase just the whole cup portion, but alas they said they don't sell parts. The review asked if anyone knew where I could purchase just a piece of this set and I left my email. The next day I got an email from Customer Service saying that they were so sorry about the cup and were going to send me a new one. 1 week or so later, I opened the box to find they had replaced the entire set. I wish I could rate this 800 stars. Or at least rate Anthropologie that! This kind of generosity and attention for customers is UNHEARD OF anymore. I was shocked and delighted at the same time. I will be shopping even more at Anthropologie in the future and tell everyone of my experience. Oh, and these cups? While delicate and more useful for a show piece for clumsy people like myself, they are still adorable and so unique. They will be used only sparingly for cooking. Instead I will keep it safe up on my display shelf!

Functional + Cute!
Not only are these measuring cups nice to look at displayed on the kitchen counter, but they are also very functional. They measure rather accurately. A happy purchase!

Perfect Mother's Day Gift!
I came into the store to purchase another set of measuring cups for my mother as a Mother's Day gift. I found a beatutiful set of measuring cups, but then this set was pointed out and I loved the design and price instantly! I purchased this set along with a recipe book and shopping list for the market that pictured a milk bottle which looks like the measuring cups! I also loved the fact that it was designed by an Anthropolgie employee! I'm sure my mother will love it! I recommend this produce for anyone who likes a creative approach to practical items!
I got these on a whim. Yes, I bake, no I'm not hung up on exact measurements. These little measuring cups are too pretty to hide!!! I have them sitting on top of my "retro style" microwave. The colors are vibrants, nice quality ceramic. They would make an adorable wedding gift or for anyone who loves to bake. I may order another set to give as a gift!!!!

Beautiful, unique ...
These cups were a birthday present and were put to use the following weekend at a dinner party. I used the smallest one for olive pits, the 1/3 cup contained the olives. The half cup was used to serve the dipping sauce for grilled artichokes, the full cup was full of marcona almonds. I love these measuring cups! They have yet to see the inside of my kitchen drawer, they are displayed on a shelf above my bar. Having said all that I'm not sure I will ever use them as measuing cups. Go ahead, buy them ... have some fun!

I had a blast spending my Anthropology gift card the day after Christmas. Everyone expected me to buy clothes, but instead I shopped the House & Home section. These fun little beauties immediately caught my eye as a much needed alternative to my white plastic measuring cups. They are even prettier in real life and have become a centerpiece in my functional kitchen art piece. They are coveted by all who enter my kitchen and several friends have hinted they may want a set for their birthdays.
What a cute towel I purchased for my sister as a wedding gift. I am having their name embroidered on the back of the car and the date of the wedding on the licence plate. I will post pictures when I get the towel back!

Can't really read 'Just Married'
Beautiful quality and a quirky gift (I bought it for a workmate getting married), but the frustrating thing is on my towel I can't really read the 'Just Married' text, the stitching seems a little too far apart or something!

Well made keepsake
Looks handmade, much prettier than in picture! I used it for gift wrap for a wedding shower gift with coordinating wide satin ribbon....was very sweet and unique.
I just ordered 2 more for upcoming weddings......
I bought the oven mitt and pot holder as a Christmas gift for my sister-in-law who just re-did her kitchen in pale yellow. I'm adding in some hand knit dish clothes to sweeten the pot.
They are well made, great quality, and good price point. I think she'll love them - I would :)

Nice Pot Holder!
I was plesantly surprised by the quality of this pot holder. The fabric is thick and provides good heat protection. It is a nice set with the Pot Hodler and Apron, which I have those as well. I especially like the trim fabric that matches the apron. High quality! I hate to get it dirty!!

I love my potholders! The colors coordinate and look beautiful in my kitchen. They fit very well and work great! I am very happy with my purchase!
I love my pot holders with pockets! They coordinate very well with my kitchen and are nicely padded. I'm very happy I purchased a set to go with the sewing basket oven mitts. They make my kitchen happy!

Great Quality Pot Holder
I was quite pleased with the Pot Holder that I recently purchased. The quality is nice and the facbric is thick. I like the details - I have all of the matching pieces to include the Oven Mit and the Apron. They look nice together and provide an old school feeling in the kitchen.

Functional and beautiful
Bought this to match the apron, and I'm very glad I did- high quality and thick enough that you barely feel heat when taking something out of the oven
so, so cute. wicked soft. great colours. brightens up any kitchen! awesome gift for a new homeowner or bridal shower gift!

I love this dish towel! It's simple, water-color style, and appears to be durable cotton. It's educational as well and a good conversation starter for people who don't know much about horses. The illustrations are beautiful and elegant, simple and lovely. If you're not sure whether or not to get it, stop waiting and just go for it!
I was attracted to this apron because of the colors. After trying it on I immediately asked if the designer was a chef. I was told that another sales associate designed it and that she was a designer and not a chef. Well, I am a chef and I can tell you that this apron is special and different. There are 2 pockets in the side which is practical for carrying tools and the addition of belt loops is unique so once the apron ties come around to the front they stay in place. The material isn't thick and stiff, which I do not like, yet it is substantial that it lays correctly. Whoever this sales associate is needs to design more. She obviously took into account not only beauty but function. The solid panel in the front also creates the illusion of making me look thinner! I have tried on every apron from Anthropologie and this is by far the best one. Thank you to whoever you are for designing in a thoughtful way.

Love This Apron!!
This is my first apron that doesn't just cover my waist. I absolutely love it! I am a bit busty for my 5'3" frame (I am a 32DD) and it covers my top pretty well. The bottom wraps around my sides and the apron has little belt loops to help keep the tie in place if wrapped around the front. I like the deep pockets on the sides for holding utensils or dish rags. Finally, my favorite part, I love how feminine it looks and makes me feel fantastic. Plus, the fabric is thick enough to not only hold a nice shape, but allow me to wipe my hands dry after washing them.

For a very slim person
agree with another reviewer, the top is too small. I am petite, quite skinny but a bit busty. So it does not fit me that well. fabric is very soft, although I'd have loved more solid. Somehow the color and pattern made me feel like a nurse. I plan to return it.
