I saw in the paper last Thursday that there was an estate sale on Friday and Saturday…but for SOME unknown reason, it went right out of my mind….cue to Saturday….
I was meandering up a main road and I remembered the estate sale and it was on the street I was on….and then I saw it….and it was the gorgeous house of a precious friend of mine from high school….her parent’s house….my first thought was I hoped nothing had happened to her mother….and so I stopped.
Thankfully her mother is a wonderful gorgeous 81 year old who has simply moved to a smaller place….after the hugging and reminiscing about wonderful memories I began to look around….Carolyn told me that whatever I wanted would be cheaper….I picked up several silver pieces, small bowls, dishes, old flatware (which I love) and then I saw this tray…..
LOVE those handles!
It was HEAVY!!
It was pretty tarnished, but after dipping it in an aluminum roasting pan with hot water, salt and baking soda she was good as new…tho I do love tarnished…..
Wanna know how much I paid for it….it is sterling….
okay, I’ll tell you…
$10…..I was SO excited!!! And I think of sweet Carolyn every time I look at it….
I will share my other finds in another post…
Thank you for stopping by!!
