Everyone, including member volunteers at Assistance League® Way Side Inn Thrift Shop, located at 3521 Golden Gate Way, in Lafayette, will agree that recent economically challenging times teach us to value those things in life that endure and have special meaning. It is in that spirit that these lovely, blue aproned ladies will launch the Annual Silver Plate, Sterling, and Fine Linens event on Tuesday, November 5, at 10:00 AM.
The thrift shop will absolutely glisten, as well as bulge, with an array of polished pieces of finery that promise to bring joy to your table and hearth for many years to come. You will find such treasures as flatware, tea sets, cream & sugar pairs, salt & pepper shakers, butter dishes, platters, water pitchers, champagne buckets, casseroles, bowls, trays, picture frames, candle holders, gravy boats, and napkin rings. Additionally, a lovely selection of sterling silver pieces will undoubtedly catch you eye. Imagine these lovely accoutrements resting on such fine linens as tablecloths, runners, and napkins—all rich in tradition, available for a pittance, and ready to grace your home. As in previous years, this inventory of three hundred pieces will seem to whisk out the door in a matter of days.
