I didn't set out to thrift

but I had about half an hour to kill in the area so I went to the Sucky Salvation Army. It was less sucky today:

Anchor Hocking vase: .49
Whale souvenier mug: .29
Silverware in box: 19.99

The pattern reminds me of a disposable paper cup.

I saw the damage to the silverware box beforehand

But I really dug the setup. I'd been seeing these a lot lately but none this cheap so I took the plunge!

Unfortunately this is silverplate ... not silver

and when I used my jewelry silver polish it ended up looking like this.

As long as I at least break even I'll be happy.
