Beautiful New Find

My Little Shopping Bag

Coming to Korea I was worried about missing out on great finds.  Missing thrift shops and the shops I loved to visit.  However, what I have found is that there are many new things here to find and many great places to visit.  Not long after we arrived I found some beautiful flatware and I kept it in my mind that I would go back and purchase some.  Then I decided I wanted to go get a few pieces every month and build a collection while I am here in Korea.  It will not only allow me to collect these lovely pieces but I will have a beautiful story to go along with them.

And here Is What Was Inside My Little Shopping Bag

These are very well made 18/10 stainless. 

They will last forever 

Aren't they beautiful? 

There are lots of other pieces to collect as well 

I hope to have an entire set when we are ready to leave Korea.  I think I can learn to love my finds here and my new places to visit and explore....

There has been a lot of interest in this blog post and in particular the flatware.  Many have expressed an interest in purchasing some of this beautiful flatware however, try as I might I can not find it available anywhere other than here in Korea.  I do not know much about it so I can't tell you what it is called but it is sold under the brand SMF.  I have searched the Internet and tried to find it so that others could purchase it but I haven't had any luck finding it.  This is a very pricey set as each piece is sold separately, that is why I am collecting a couple pieces at the time.  I have found the website for the manufacturer, click here for 


Should I find more information I will post the information here on my blog.

    1. Thank you ever so kindly for visiting and for your nice comments, Hugs, Beverly

  3. I love the silver ware. Is there any for sale?

    1. Hello Mimi and thank you for visiting. I do not know if the flatware is sold anywhere besides here in Korea. It is sold by the piece and it is a little pricey. I can tell that it is sold under the label of Corelle Coordinates. I do not know what the flatware is called as it is in Korean and it is made in Korea. Hugs, Beverly

  4. Just beautiful! I along with Mimi would love to purchase this set. Enjoy

  5. Just beautiful! I along with Mimi would love to purchase this or a similar set. Enjoy

    1. Hello Sandy and thank you for visiting my blog!!! I have searched the internet trying to find this set but I have not had any luck. I have no idea if it is offered anywhere other than here in Korea. Should I ever find it, I will post a link here on my page. I can tell you that it is sold under the label Corelle Coordinates but I do not think that has anything to do with Corelle dishes??? It is sold by the piece here in Korea and it is very pricey and I am only buying a couple pieces at a time for my collection. I wish I could help more but I don;t even know what it is called because everything at the shop I purchase it at is in Hangul. I so wish I could help more. Hugs, Beverly
