    Great idea! I’ve found some amazing deals at my local Goodwill and Value Village as well! I’m doing silver teapots that my florist is filling for me for our centrepieces, so I’m officially BFF with Goodwill and Value Village!!! LOL! It’s such a great place!

    A friend of mine who is also getting married very soon needed to get her own silverware and I wanted to pass on some information to everyone!!  I found the reflections silverware at HobbyLobby that were $5.99 for 24 (8 forks, spoons and knives) and also I found them at Walmart that were $3.97 for a pack of 30 (10 forks, spoons, and knives).  Awesome for brides on a tight budget!!!

    Thank you for such an awesome Idea.  Fiance really wants the reflections stuff, but I had no idea how expensive it was.  I may be trying to get the Goodwill idea to fly.  I think it could be fun.

    Check Ikea or of you have places like Old Time Pottery or a Garden Ridge near you.  That’s where I’m going to buy my silverware and then resell it here.

    Unfortunately, our local Goodwill has prices much higher than yours.  However, we got flatware from Instawares at $1.49 a dozen for forks, or $0.86 a dozen for spoons.  (Since we had only heavy hors d’oeuvres, we didn’t really need knives.)  Details are here.

    We are renting but it was really the only option. We are paying $5 per person for all rentals including silverware, plates, and 2 glasses per person (water/soda and wine). Yes this is about $500 in the end but I didn’t see another option since I don’t have the time or space to source and then wash all of that stuff and transport it to and from our venue and wash it again before donating it back or trying to resell it. Sounds like you hit the jackpot though, great find!
