Thrifting Weekend

I went to several estate sales and antique shows this weekend. I found this set of silver goblets.
It came in a nice blue velvet box with silver latches.
It's all in very good condition, both the box and all of the goblets. I can't find a name or maker's mark anywhere.
I'm guessing it may have been a wedding gift in the 50's or 60's? It appears to have never even been used!
I also found this cute little brass alligator clip. It was pretty dirty but cleaned up very nicely with some lemon and salt - I just poured some salt on a slice of lemon and scrubbed. All the dirt and grim came right off.


  1. Wow, good finds. Gotta love estate sales. Well done.

  2. Nice stuff once again. Any idea how I can get candlewax of some bronze candle sticks?
