Some of my favorite thrifting finds have been the mundane treasures; the everyday items that usually go unnoticed. A fork is a fork, it serves an ordinary purpose, but finding an especially right fork can be a bit of a thrill.
Today I found this 45+ piece Danish Modern flatware set for five dollars. With their smooth, sleek handles and pleasant shapes, these otherwise-boring kitchen denizens will make more of a positive impact on my everyday than any delicate antique or priceless collectible. Five dollars just made every meal a little more special.
