One of my favorite finds at an antique show is the big wooden boxes of vintage silverware. As I search through the tarnished spoons and forks… I am in my element. At one time there were dozens of the same spoons and forks and knives…. but now they are a one-of-a-kind. I wonder who owned each pieces… if only they could speak. Were they handed down generation after generation… given as a wedding gift or purchased with hard earned saved pennies?
