The BOX...

My 1st post for my blog is about a little...well medium sized BOX. I walked into my local Goodwill (as I do everyday) and was drawn to the "display case" (I will write another post about the imfamous display case), and what catches my eye but this BOX.

Not an ordinary BOX as you can clearly see, but a special BOX...with a red sticker...

Inside this box was FLATWARE
Flatware like I have never seen before. This had to be too good to be true. I just knew there was gonna to be like all knives and may one fork and a spoon. Well to my surprised it was a complete set...well almost.


12 knives
11 dessert spoons
10 big spoons
10 dinner forks
10 salad forks
53 PIECES in all. Apparently it may have been a setting for 12 people, but hey 10 works just fine for me. Now do I need a place setting for 10 people? Will I ever have 10 people over for dinner? Heck! I don't know, but I do know they will have something to eat with...LOL...
Now this isn't your run of the mill flatware. Oh no my good friends! First off each piece has a good weight to them. There is a 95% engraved into each piece (wonder what that means). The portion closest to the neck of the flatware resembles a Roman column and the tip resembles the top portion of the Fleur die Lis. You wont find these at Macy's or Horchow...at least I dont think so...I already tried to look for them.

I almost forgot...the red sticker price...$29.99!
Well another post of GOOD WILL HUNTING!


UPDATED (8-30-16)

It has been almost 6 years since I posted about this flatware and I still have the flatware. Yes some of them are missing, but thats just life. 

I want to update this post with a few photos as well as sources, just in case you want to grab this flatware yourself. 
Although I previously mentioned the flatware could not be found at Horchow, that no longer holds true. A very similar version is available and you can click HERE to take a look. 

If you visit Houzz, you can also find this flatware HERE

When I was thrifting years ago, the prices were great and there weren't a lot of people blogging and bragging about the low prices. Since that time, the prices have gone up and the stores are OVERRUN with consumers trying to get a bargain and trying to get something thrifted. Although I don't thrift as much as I used to, I still find the find to pop in every now and then and score something amazing.
