Bonanza of Silver

Wow! Someone is cleaning out their
Silver Chest. .

Last week I was able to buy two pieces of silver

(Last weeks finds)

And this week I found four pieces
They look terrible when I buy them.

 I haven't worked on the covered dish
It is really going to need a lot of elbow grease and lots of time!
 But, I bring them home and use tarnish remover
And LOTS of elbow grease.
 They look much better
The picture really doesn't do them justice
The little candy dish (I guess that is what it is)
Is just dainty and so pretty.
The creamer and sugar bowl will be very useful.
I have never owned pieces of silver.
So, I am thrilled to find these for only a few dollars.
All six pieces cost me less than $5.
It always amazes me what you can find at
The thrift store (Deseret Industries).

  6. Wow, did you get a great deal on these pieces. I think that little candy dish is so adorable. Lots of work to get off all that tarnish, so sometimes I just leave it on.
