I found some great thrifty finds at estate sales this week. I had one big purchase. This harp leg sewing table was $145 - too much for my budget. It was really beautiful, and I had been looking for something like this with drawers to keep silver flatware. I ended up putting a bid on the table for $50, and I got it!
Though still expensive, I think I got a really good deal, and I am very happy with it.
The details are beautiful and the shape of the legs is so unique. (You might notice the mirror over the table as my mirror metamorphosis project from a few weeks ago).
I went to Joann Fabric and bought some silver cloth (specially treated fabric to prevent tarnishing) to line the drawers.
Now I have a new place to store all my great silver serving estate finds! And speaking of...
I found a few serving pieces. This great ladle, and meat fork, same pattern. And a beautiful berry serving spoon by Wm A. Rogers, La Concorde pattern, 1910.
I also found this charming cake server. After I cleaned it up, I saw it had a sterling handle!
And I love the monogram - Bob and Kitty Oct. 28 1944. It was probably a wedding gift.
This napkin ring is also sterling, and the monogram reads, Louise.
And I found yet another wine box, and a cute little wire plant stand.
Overall, a pretty good weekend!
