flea market find // gold flatware

Gold Flatware

Gold Flatware

One of my favorite things about being here in SoCal is the flea marketing! The month we arrived, we hit a different flea every weekend. The Rosebowl was great, obviously, but some of my favorite finds were actually at the Melrose Trading Post. In one day, I found  an ostrich feather headpiece, a vintage banjo, and this awesome golden flatware. And if that’s not a perfect group of flea market finds, I don’t know what is.

I just fell in love with this flatware, and when I talked the guy down to a few bucks for the lot I just couldn’t pass it up. It was a little tarnished but cleaned up beautifully. Now I just need a reason to use it!

So hit me with your ideas! What would you use some gorgeous gilded flatware for? Dinner party? Photo shoots? Just for funsies? xoxo

  1. Awesome find! I would use them everyday! It’s no fun to have something that you love only to pull it out on special occasions. It’ll make every day a little special 🙂

  2. I believe the long spoon is a cold drink spoon, iced tea, etc. Do you mean those don’t come with a set anymore? I remember when the gold flatware came out, but can’t remember the year. Early 70’s? Fun.
