So MacIver and I were out on the weekend. Driving home after a long day of running around, just around the corner from home I spied a canopy in a parking lot of an office building area. I asked if we could stop and peek as it was obviously a garage sale ...some sort of community fund raising event. MacIver was a little tired and maybe a little grumpy and I said..oh..forget it...we don't need anything ...but he did turn in and sat in the car while I whipped around. There was lots of little things. I spied a set of cutlery in a cutlery box but did not pay too much attention to those (yet). Then I saw some old silver stuff. Again I really don't need any silver as I have LOADS of it from my MIL and my own dear Mum (still in Ireland awaiting sipping). I did look..and found something that I loved the shape of...what do you think?
Lovely detail on the handle
but what confused me was...what sport plays for "flights"? Anyone know what this might have been an award for? **EDIT...I think I found it after googling every which way but up...golf...maybe just ladies golf?**
There was quite a few items in the collection of trophies. Platters, cups and vases and I could kick myself that I didn't pick them all up! I asked how much they wanted for the jug and she said .... $2!!! SO SOLD!! I was so happy! Next time I won't leave anything behind...afterall..I am sure you would all love a little blog candy? I won't fail you again !! Promise!
MacIver came over then and I showed him the cutlery set in the box...a very pretty & elegant set of plated silver, 6 pieces of each item. I really did not need cutlery but I thought my newly wed son & his wife might. So I called him and he said they would. I asked how much and they said $10 (reduced from $25!!). SCORE! He was over shortly after we got home and so I didn't get a chance to take a picture but he was thrilled with them :-)
So of course now I am all excited to get out to other garage sales this Summer!
I am going to link up to Southern Hospitality's Thrifty Treasures
