The Beginning of a Junky Weekend

 Yes, I know I am supposed to be in time-out on the junk but Labor Day weekend is the last hurrah of Summer so how could I resist.  I kicked off the weekend with a quick stop on Friday at the SST.  Not a big haul but enough to continue to keep me going back.  The small case has dividers in side for 8-track tapes (ha!!).  They will becoming out and a rescue is in order.  The milk glass compote looks like Fenton but there are no markings.
This flatware is stainless so I don't think it is very old but I love the detail on the handles and it has the look.  These over-sized snifters hold a strange attraction for me.  I have no idea where I will find room for yet another one but when I do I'll be ready!
Two more stops on the junky weekend to follow!

Happy hunting Kathy! That flatware reminds me of the bone handled silverware my mom has. Very cool looking!

I haven't junked at all this weekend. Just taking it easy. What does the SST stand for? Or maybe you don't want to give that away....

Of course you can't pass up a junkin' opportunity. Love that black box and those handles are mighty pretty!

Time out is overrated anyway! I look forward to seeing what you do with the tape case. Somebody I know has silverware like that but I can't for the life of me remember who. It's going to drive me nuts!

I love those big brandy snifters, too. A group of just about anything (lace, spools, flatware) looks better in glass.

I have a very similar set of flatware that I use frequently. I love the weight of the pieces and the buttery yellow of the handles.

You scored great finds. Love the flatware and the color of the handles.
Love the milk glass dish. The old case would be great for supplies.
Happy September!
