Junkspiration: Somerville, MA Consignent Galleries

Sometimes when I’m having a particularly stressful day, I like to mosey over to the Consignment Galleries a couple blocks from my office in Somerville. It’s a 2-room showroom with many different antiques from all different periods and styles. There really is nothing like being amongst the old things when you’re feeling a little overloaded by technology and life. Today I stumbled across the lovely little set of antique silver. I am a particular fan of the¬†delicate patterns and detailing, and often vintage silverware makes me wonder how many dinner parties and wonderful meals these pieces have been a part of. One of the challenges can be finding pieces that don’t have age-telling spots or tarnish. You can find some great tips for how to give old pieces a new shine with some regular household items here, and some beautiful other examples here. Enjoy!
