Downsizing and your kids don't want your silver tea set.

Downsizing and your kids don't want your silver tea set.

Last year, when my mom passed away, my siblings and I patiently and generously divided up her belongings. What we noticed was that no one really wanted any of the silver ware, especially the fancy coffee and tea set. For most people, it is the big job of keeping it sparkling clean that determines whether they keep it or not.

When my sister investigated where to sell it or donate it, she found that there was not much demand for it. Apparently much of the silver ware is silver plated, not solid sterling silver, and not worth much. You can find a lot of it at second hand shops in Vancouver. If you think it is worth something, VancouverGold, a local company can analyze its content and collectability. Below are some other shops to help you out as well.
