Shiney and Blue



Surprise!!! Was I ever when I polished the spoons that I bought today at Mt. Dora for $1.00 each...you see...the 7 gawdy looking spoons/Fork are Sterling Silver!!! YES...Sterling Silver...my jaw dropped when I looked through the loupe. And here I was going to cut them to make jewelry..hahaha.  I love awesome finds like these. The spoons are resting on a box full of crocheted place mats...9 all together for $5.00. The Blue & White plate and doorknobs were also a buck  and the cute hankies were also a steal for $2.00 each. I did find some cool jewelry but that's for another time. hahaha


How about you, did you find anything at the flea market today?

Hugs...Sylvia

P.S....I am linking up to Debbiedoos loves living in the Carolinas...check it out...pretty cool blog with lots of great and colorful ideas.
I hope it's ok if I add this old post to Linda's Nifty Thrifty Tuesday...beings it the last week of school I did not have time to add new pics.
Enjoy...

Wow! I bet your jaw dropped!! Nice buy! I didn't do any yard sale-ing today, although there were lots going on. It was a perfect day for one too.
Good job on the flatware! Thanks for stopping by and following. I'll be following you too. :)

Man oh man! I don't ever get lucky like that. I haven't been to Mount Dora in a long time. Did you go into town or to Renningers?

Sylvia said...

Fitzcharmin....we, my friends and I went to Rennigers.

You really scored on the sterling silver - that's probably worth $30 apiece! Also, love the doorknobs -they will make a great collection. Is that a flo-blue plate - that's sooooo collectible! Linda

One more thing....about the dining room chair with the flowers on it....I have two of them - identical but discovered in completely different places. Would love to have a dining room set of 8. Linda
