We have the best consignment store in my little town.
I sell things there all the time, but the best thing is that I just put the things I sell on my account and I'll go in and find something I adore and the sweet owner just subtracts it from the total she owes me.
I love that!
Baby Bee and I decided to take a little trip down there (it's all of about 10 blocks away) today to see what we could find.
Well, look what I found!
Yeah! I bet that caught your attention.
It's a set of silver plate flatware!
I can't for the life of me read what the pattern is, but it's charming!
8 dinner forks, 8 dinner knives, 8 teaspoons, 8 soup spoons, iced tea spoons, butter pat knives, some service pieces, and some mystery spoons.
(edited to add: The company is National Silver Company and the pattern is Adam. There are 80 pieces.)
Mystery spoons, eh?
Yes. they're a mystery because I don't have any idea what they might have been used for!
I think the tiny teaspoon ones might be used for espresso?
(or maybe that's just my coffee bias speculating there)
But what about the soup spoon shaped ones?
Do you know?
Enlighten me please if you do!
Included in this flatware purchase was also......
this French blue enamel bucket.
I have no idea how old it is, but I don't think it's super old. I wouldn't be surprised if it is missing a lid. But no matter, I love it the way it is. Not 100% sure what I'm going to do with it, but I can see using is as a utensil crock, for garden storage, as a bouquet holder, etc.
Well thank you so much for buzzin' by and checking out my new treasure(s)!
I so appreciate you taking time out of your day to come by and visit for a bit.
I'm still working on that spring tea party. I sure hope you can come. I think I'll use my new flatware.
