Point well taken: Flatware due diligence

Design*Sponge: Good point, you cannot just go out and buy new flatware. It is an investment and should last as long as your mattress. Maybe longer: It is metal, after all. Check in with their post today and note the extensive research completed before Grace replaced her flatware. While I am not a modern girl, her point is well taken regardless of what style interests you: What flatware you choose is not a decision to be made lightly or hastily. There are thousands of patterns from hundreds of names and one should seek out as many as possible before deciding, even if you only wish to satisfy yourself you have done due diligence at a price level and care less what you get at a design level (though, The Hostess can hardly imagine that actually happens!)
