I have favorites in different cities that we visit and sometimes it is fun to meander through for often you'll see treasures that you'll miss if you're in a hurry. And sometimes when I'm in a hurry, I'll just pop in and just visit the booths of favorite vendors.
It's fun either way!
You never know what treasures you'll find and for someone who thinks I need nothing, it's amazing that I an bring home finds -- big and little!
A silver chafing dish which with some entertaining that I did this Christmas, I decided that I truly needed! It wasn't a steal but it was a fair price and since I really decided that it was a real need and not a frivolously need!
I have had a box set of individual silverplate fish forks and knives "forever" and I do use them if we serve fish to company. But I was entranced with this boxed fish knife and fork serving set. I may use them if I serve fish on a buffet or I may use them for something else on a buffet. I've been know to be creative with my silver serving pieces!
Two early 19th century English brass candlesticks. Found at a favorite antique shop, Webster House -- the shop that I jokingly say that their prices have too many zeros for my purse! But these were on the discount table and were 90% of the original price and actually for Webster House, the original price was fair (meaning that it didn't have all that many zeros) so I was very pleased that I was able to purchase these. I am fond of brass candlesticks especially antique ones and although I don't have that many, these do fit in well at Linderhof.
It's Friday which means that I'm doing Show and Tell my new treasures so please join Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday!
