I liked my good friend’s  collection of milk glass vases (around 60 or so) she used for her reception and made a remark about it. She had spent months collecting it from Goodwills and they were fabulous. She said she would not accept money and that we could just meet up and she would pass them off to me. I plan on buying her lunch and drinks.

I know it’s not the exact scenario. But I guess it depends on how close the friendship and what you are comfortable with. I would probably pass on jars/milk glass for free. Probably the same for the silverware, unless you paid significantly more than a dollar per set.

@rmarie3:  I know what you mean. You did spend a lot of time looking for it, too. If it’s not a close friend, I think those prices are pretty reasonable (although I wonder if she expects it for free).

I think those are very reasonable prices! Don’t feel bad. If it makes you feel better, I’ve ALREADY arranged to sell my linens to a friend for a dollar less than we paid for them each.

I think those prices definitely sound reasonable! Especially for someone who is not a direct friend of yours. Maybe this is rude, but I wouldn’t even consider giving those things away for free. You spent your time and money collecting and preparing them – you need to at least make back what you spent on them!
