40 year old party supplies!!!
I have learned such an important lesson from all of my estate sale shopping. Use what you have and don't wait for that special occasion to use your nice things. I can't tell you how many homes I have been through where there are boxes of linen napkins, party invitations, tablecloths that have never been used. Did the owner of these items really never have an event worthy enough to trot these items out? We use our silver everyday, if the kids want tea it is delivered in our schmanciest teacup! I hope when my estate is liquidated, I will have used up every package of party invitations, balloons and streamers.
