Silver Sunday #3 - Not so Silver any more!

Sharing a few of my recent thrift store finds... I think this little collection totaled less than $25.00!  I love when I find a deal.  

Here I have several trays
sugar & creamer
and candy dish.
Thank you Gypsy Fish for hosting such a great party during the month of January.  If you want to see more beautiful silver visit Gypsy Fish for links to the participants. 


There is exciting news in our house!  My 81 year young father-in-law and I are going to have our own little space in a local antique store.  So I will be on the lookout for more great finds.  More information to follow on the details of where and when!
