We all know what makes for bad silverware (see: heavy handled knives clattering to the floor off a slippery plate, forks that won't even pretend to spear a lowly salad leaf, spoons that run off for clandestine moonlit rendezvous with the dish etc.) but what makes *good* silverware?
Our favorite pieces always have the best stories to tell. From our beloved large wooden shop-shelf that began its journey in a general store straight out of Laura Ingalls' Big Woods (and made its way to us by way of Anna's father's wood-burning-stove store a decade ago) to the biergarten table we "borrowed" from Two Pony Gardens...until we found an American-made source to get our own and then we put it back (thanks, Mom!) we love a piece that feels like it comes with history. Oh, if these old chairs could speak!
