    Thanks, Jim, excellent information! Now I just need to buy me some silver!

  2. For silver that is going to be stored for a period of time, say only used for holidays, I use Pacific silvercloth bags to retard the tarnishing process.

    Beautifully written but exactly WHY I don’t have silver. But am glad someone cares for it as gently as you because I certainly enjoy seeing it!

      Lynn, I love silver. Always thought it was pretty! The thing I think is so pitiful, most young people do not want anything they have to polish. So, it goes to flea markets and yard sales….. Then I buy it! LOL!I think I have bought 88 pieces in the last 6 weeks…………….. Glad to have you aboard! JIM
