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
