Silver plated items can be found in abundance in thrift stores and at markets. There are the good, the bad and the ugly. I like to think I stick to the good :-)
I was beyond thrilled recently to find these gorgeous large urns at Vinnie's for $5 each, they have a trophy style to them that made me feel quite the winner when I found them. They're big so I may use them as planters. At the moment they are tarnished but would polish up beautifully, I don't know whether to make them all gorgeous and shiny or leave them with their vintage tarnished charm - any thoughts?
They have such beautiful detailing, I can't believe one of these could cost as little as a cheeseburger meal at McDonald's!
I found these lovely candlesticks at a flea market and paid $12, they are in pristine condition and will look fab with my vintage silver tableware, napkin rings and goblets.
I love this wire bowl, I have seen these several times on Etsy but always postage in US only so I was really pleased to get this for $3! Again I'm not sure whether to polish or leave tarnished?
This tray is a beauty - a $3 find! It's big, gorgeous and heavy and bringing my hubbie the occasional breakfast in bed will be a much more elegant affair than the plastic tray off the high-chair I've been using up until now :-)
