My Grandmother, a thrifting pro, would give every child and grandchild in the family a Junk Present each Christmas. Who would want a "Junk" present, you ask? It was, in fact, our most eagerly anticipated gift each year. These Junk gifts, were anything but. Sure, they were technically old, used items, but they were cool thrift store or garage sale finds that were perfectly suited to the person whom they were given to.
My mom has taken on this tradition and I thought I would share with you the Junk I received this year.
I'm not sure what this is technically supposed to be (anyone know?), but I love it's shape. I think it would be great for candies, or other goodies. Perhaps that's its intended use?
For now it lives in my corner cabinet. I've been on the search for more silver for this cabinet.
I love old silver, especially all tarnished with age and use. I also love vintage cutlery, such as these little spreading knives she also found.
Does your family exchange Junk presents? If not, why not try it out?
