Hunt Down and Cash in on These 16 Thrift Store Treasures


Much of the flatware dumped at your local thrift is inexpensive and not worth much. But if you’re really into it, you can study up and learn how to identify the occasional real sterling silver piece that slips in among the dross.

It may only be an odd fork or spoon, but find enough and you can melt it down for a tidy sum. As with vintage Pyrex, you want to walk into the store informed as to what’s real silver. Study up at eBay’s forums or by watching good YouTube videos by those who thrift and profit from silver, and you’ll soon be shining.
