First Blog Entry and a little silver talk...
by Kris Schmid
This is my first blog and something I’ve been meaning to do for a few years now. I plan to use this space for informative tips and info and will gladly answer any questions the readers may have.

One thing we’ve noticed is that we have seen some damaged silver hollow ware and flatware come in for polishing recently. It is a good idea to store silver that is not being used for display in flannel bags treated to resist tarnish. An alternative is to store items in a ziplock bag with tarnish preventing strips. Never wrap silver in cling wrap or store it in a hot attic. It is best to store silver in a cool dry place. Also remember to empty and rinse out silver salt shakers and cellars after use. Salt damages silver and will leave a pitted appearance if left in too long.
