The Spoon Jumped Over The Moon

The Spoon Jumped Over The Moon....and so did I...

In my last post I showed my great thriftin' find

At the time, I only bought a 4 place setting. 

This weekend I went back to Value Village and got the rest.

For the first batch I paid $14.99.

Paid another $14.99 for the second batch. 
Another 4 place setting, minus a few teaspoons here and there.

And finally.....

The third batch  - $14.99.  This included serving spoons and fork.

Not too bad a price for everything, considering its value.

I want to have a complete place setting of 12 - so the hunt is on for more - Yippee!!

I am storing it in a vintage cutlery box I bought here in BC.
It's a little scuffed up, but that's adds character!

I want to complete the set, polish up the existing silverware and give it to my daughter for Christmas.
But because Christmas is like....a billizion years away, I know I will never, ever, ever last that long.

I love vintage dinnerware.

  1. I am glad that you went back to pick up the rest of the set, Diane. If you don't find other pieces at the thrift stores you can always check eBay!

  2. I'm so glad you were able to get the rest of the pieces before someone else did! And the serving pieces too! I hope you can find the few missing ones to add to it. That was a great find!

  3. lovely! yes, ebay it's never disappointing, try!

  4. How lovely!! And to give it to your daughter too! Wonderful!!
    I'm here from Debbie's party, and I'm your newest follower!!

  5. Now that my friend is a score! I love this kind of stuff. Thanks for sharing with my newbie party.

  6. Wowzer, good thrifting. That is a lovely pattern and so much more useful with a placesetting (well almost anyway) for 8.

  7. Big-time scoring, sister! And your daughter is sure to love your ever-so-thoughtful and valuable gift.

  8. Where do all the lost spoons go? Same place as lost socks I guess. Great deals.

  9. Hi Diane ~ You found some beautiful flatware for quite a good price, lucky daughter this Christmas ~ or before!
    Thanks for stopping by.

  10. Wonderful finds. I have my mothers silverware stored away somewhere in the garage and was going to consign it..but keeping it for myself now...have to go digging first!

    Headed over from Debbie's and am your newest follower...your almost to 100!!

  11. Hi Diane, What a beautiful treasure you have found. Thank you for visiting and your sweet comment.
    Have a wonderful week and keep hunting! ;)
    Hugs ~*~Wendy~*~

  12. Hi Diane, I lived in BC for most of my life, but now I live in Manitoba. I love VV for all of the great things that I find there every time I go.
    I love the silver that you found, what a great find!

  13. Nice purchase! I've done the same thing before. Purchased something and then wished I had gotten more and gone back with fingers crossed that there is still some left and purchased more. Isn't thrift shopping so much fun?

    Your daughter will love this wonderful gift.

  14. WOW!!!

    I never find flatware when I am thrifting. That is an amazing score! You were lucky that they still had the rest of the settings.

    Your daughter is very lucky to have a mom who loves and provides for her the way that you do.

    Thanks for visiting my garage and leaving such a kind comment about my reorganization adventure!

  17. Diane I love the pattern on your silverware!! What a great find!

  18. Ahhh this is fantastic! I always look for silver when I thrift and thus far all I have found is junk lol. I hope you will share this at my VIP party today...

  19. Diane, Fantastic deal. I agree, trying ebay will be a good source for the extra pieces. I am your newest follower, over from Debbie's Newbie party. Ginger

  20. Hi there ~ Great deal on the flatware- it is really pretty! I love to collect sets and mismatched pieces too- anything is silver is just gorgeous! Thanks for sharing at FNF! :)

  21. Love that silver! You really did get a bargain and so pretty. Have a great weekend--hope you are getting sunshine (rain here!) Patty

  22. A great find indeed! I hope you eventually find enough to complete the set. Thank you for sharing at LWYL Saturday Night Spotlight! Come back any time. ;)

  23. That's a great buy. You should be able to find lots of that pattern on Ebay. For polish, I really recommend Birk's Foaming Silver Polish. We've just tried it for the first time and it's wonderful!
