Offbeat: Coffee Cups

March 9, 2007---Posted at 11:00 a.m. CST

CONCORDE, AR-- Hazel Brecheen starts every day with several cups of coffee, in fact she has two pots ready when she wakes up.  Then comes the tough part, picking out which cup to drink out from.  You see, Hazel, has close to 1,400 cups and counting.

Eight years ago, her kids and grandkids ran out of things to give her, so one birthday they gave her a John Deere coffee mug, and it kind of snowballed from there.  Now, enyone that knows Hazel, knows about her collection and if they find a unique mug they bring it by the house.  Hazel has so many cups they forced her to move the bulk of the collection to the workshop next to the house.

Hazel and the grandkids also hit flea markets and yard sales, but won't pay too much for a mug.  As far as cleaning all the cups, that job is left for the grandkids as well, because Hazel says they'll inherit the collection when she's gone.
