However, I think it's good to use things that appeal to a person such as colors and patterns that make one feel happy.
My very favorite silverware pattern is Michelangelo by Oneida.
Several years ago, I bit the financial bullet and bought a set for eight.
Lately, we have been short on spoons.
Like missing socks in the wash, I don't know how they disappeared.
While browsing in a Goodwill thrift store, some new silver spoons were stored in a glass-fronted cabinet used for higher priced items.
Sure enough, they were by Oneida but in a pattern similar to Michelangelo. They were not an exact match but were close enough.
The "new to our household" spoons are the ones photographed in today's post.
At $2.99 each, they came home with me.
IF YOU ARE A THRIFT STORE SHOPPER, DO YOU LOOK FOR SPECIFIC ITEMS OR WHATEVER RANDOM TREASURES YOU MAY FIND?
