One of my kitchen must-haves is lots of utensils. I’m particularly drawn to the wooden handled variety, with their differences in age, texture, tone, and purpose. I love to mix and match these pieces when entertaining guests, or just sitting down for a meal with my husband. The more eclectic the table settings, the better.
Every time I visit a thrift store, I dig through bins of flatware and canisters full of serving utensils. Sometimes I leave with nothing, and that’s just fine. Sometimes I find hidden treasures, like the vintage brass + wood set (serving spoon and dinner knife shown above).
For all the local NOVA people, here are the details for everything shown above, and the prices I paid.
