Thrifted Vintage Silver Compotes

We have a super-amazing thrift store here in town, and every time I stop in I find something wonderful.  Their prices are rock-bottom, too, which is always fun since most "chain" thrift stores have caught on and charge quite a bit these days--at least, in my opinion.
