$99 - Are You Out of Your Mind?


Look what I found at the local consignment store.
A polished set of silverplate flatware, all for $99!
The serving pieces alone can sell for $25 or more on Ebay!

They were all wrapped up in a towel in a box. I wasn't sure what or how much I was actually getting until I got home. I counted twelve 5-piece place settings, with 18 teaspoons, and the serving pieces. It is called Modern Baroque by Oneida Community.

I'm counting this as an early birthday gift to myself!

Pin It!

Those are gorgous! I bought 5 serving spoons recently at an antique mall for $2.00 each and thought that was a good bargain but I think you've got me beat.

Fantastic, green with envy over here. If you could see what I use for my Thanksgiving dinner for 40...think mismatched corner diner. I always start thinking of looking for some in October, when everyone else is, too. I need to figure out a round of consignment stores I regularly visit in my neck of the woods. When's the birthday?? Happy, happy.
