cool find ..

mondays and tuesdays there is a little church run thrift store near me that is open. we always stop in after our morning walks and sometimes we find things and sometimes we don't ..

we found this today ..


it is marked on the back '800' and another mark that is too difficult to read ..at first i wasn't sure what it was .. just thought it was an odd spoon .. folding back over itself .. after research, i found out it is called a 'medicine spoon' .. the 800 means it is basically sterling silver ..

so you will know ..

later,
troy & rod

  1. What a beautiful little treasure! Thanks for the info on "800"... I had heard that years ago, but had forgotten. I haven't been thrifting for such a long time. Right now I just don't want to brave the snow and cold, although this is often when you find the best things... when everyone else stays tucked in out of the weather.

    Still wondering if I need your wolf shirt...

    Hey, I need to plan a trip up your way after the New Year sometime. A little personal shopping at the warehouse, perhaps? And a visit, of course!

    Hugs,
