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.
I was given this as a gift and I love it. It's so pretty. It's also not too big so doesn't take up too much space in the fridge or on the table. It seems quite sturdy as well. I'm really clumsy but this is standing up to life in my kitchen very well!

perfect size for my family of three
I love this little butter dish. It's painted so well and is durable. My family is me, my husband & our 10-year old daughter so a half-stick of butter is a good size for us. I don't use this every day but I'm trying to make more of our dinnertimes special as our girl grows up. She likes the nights when I use "fancier" things for our meals and this butter dish is cute & practical.

Beautiful butter dish
I asked for this dish for my birthday and I can honestly say that it was my favorite gift! It livens up the inside of my refrigerator, peek-a-booing through my clear butter compartment. The painting is beautifully done and even though it's not very large it does fit an imperial or blue bonnet butter stick perfectly. It also fits in the butter compartment which is great in my opinion.
This product is great quality. I love the color of the red one, it's so bright and fun. I can't wait to use this for brunch parties and when I'm baking.

I have the habit of buying a lot of kitchen products.. and this is my favorite egg crate I have came across. I like it more than the Farmer's egg crate that Anthro also sells. I bought this one in turquoise. I love how they are stackable (great for storing them) and I prefer how they are half a dozen. Both white and brown eggs look great in it. I'm really happy with these!

A Great Buy
Seriously, can use for anything from propping eggs in (obviously the main reason it was created) to displaying jewelry or trinkets. Even could be used to hold paint and brushes for a little budding artist! (You can lay the brushes horizontal across the center). Love the bright color options as well!
I've always loved the aprons at Anthropologie...They're generally gorgeous, but I hadn't bought any in the past because they didn't seem very practical for when I'm actually cooking and baking. I always felt that the various trims / embellishments of the other aprons were too dress-like and I'd need an apron on top of those aprons so that I didn't ruin them.
This apron was the answer to that problem for me. The colour blocking is beautiful and elegant, but the pleats and piping are simple enough that it still feels like an actual apron as opposed to a dress. Pockets are always handy, especially in the kitchen when I'd need a pencil to jot down a recipe or a fresh tasting spoon. I'd definitely repurchase!

Beautiful and Functional
I love baking and needed something that was stylish and fun while functional. I ordered this and the tea and crumpets apron, I love them both!

I was very reluctant to use this apron for anything other than a hostess apron, but I was so happy to find that it is just as durable and washable as other aprons I owned. After making some chocolate cookies and getting batter on it, I was able to wash it and it came out looking like new. The only thing to remember is to hang it up to dry or immediately after drying, because it does wrinkle and, to me at least, it seems kinda silly to iron an apron.
This is an eye-catching, stunning and FUN piece. The colors are vibrant and beautiful (just as pictured!), and it looks great on the counter. The size is perfect; a regular-sized stick of butter (a typical stick: 4oz, 3 1/4 x 1 1/2-in sq. ) fits nicely in the dish. I am thrilled to have purchased this. This would also make a GREAT gift! The quality is excellent. The little knob/handle on top is a big plus too (it makes it easy to remove the lid). Very practical dish… It adds a touch of pizazz to the kitchen, and to brunch tables! I have seen some butter dishes online where the base is totally flat (with no turned-up edges to contain the lid), and thus the lid can slide around…. (I am not sure that that sort of design is practical; it's nice when the lid stays nestled within the base, as well as the fact that it's also nice if the butter stays "contained" and can't slop and smear further than the boundary of the base and lid…) I LOVE this dish.

Love this butter dish!
A unique and bohemian look. Exactly what I was hoping for. I love butter! So this makes butter even better! :)

Charming butter dish
I am highly excited with my new butter dish. Super chic. It will add charm to any table.
I really wish Anthro would quit selling the cutest aprons ever! I already have 5 and every time I shop Anthro, I see another one I love. I am at the point now, that I have to skip the aprons altogether because I can't resist buying them. This is the last one, I promise...

Comfy & Hungry
I saw this apron on my favorite TV show, "Young & Hungry", and I thought it was cute. I bought it and when I put it on, it was so comfortable. I love it so much.
