The O R I G I N A L Hand Stamped Vintage Coffee Spoons™

Sycamore Hill
• Since 2010 •

My original design, the first Death Before Decaf™ sold on November 17, 2010!

Death Before Decaf.....I don't think the obsessed mean it LITERALLY, but some would swear they would lay it on the line for caffeine....

This listing is for one (1) vintage silverplate teaspoon, measuring 6 inches, in the pattern shown in the last photo of the listing. Hand wash recommended, as vintage silver was never meant for the extreme temps of the modern day dishwasher.

SILVER PATTERN: Not crazy in love with the pattern? Just let me know at check out, and upon receipt of your order, I will forward pattern selections. It's a Sycamore Hill thing! ♥

G I F T W R A P P I N G: Each and every item in the Sycamore Hill Collection will arrive beautifully and organically wrapped in the Sycamore Hill signature style ready for gift-giving. I guarantee you will be very pleased to give a piece of my Original Collection. Handmade personalized gift notes are also available, upon request ~ it's a Sycamore Hill thing! ♥ There is never an additional charge for these special, personalized touches, they are signature to the Sycamore Hill Brand ~ and always my pleasure!

FONT or LAYOUT: If you have any preferences in fonts or layout of wording, just let me know. My goal is to create the perfect piece just for you, just the way you want it! I'm a perfectionist. That's just how I's a Kelly thing! ♥

Launched in 2009, I absolutely adore coffee and began making these for fellow Kona bean-loving friends & family. (Visit my "About" page to learn the scoop on how the idea was born.) I gifted them with a handbuilt mug & a delicious gourmet blend. They make a uniquely personal and creative gift on their own, but a most charming embellishment for any type of gift as well! I began offering the Collection on Etsy in 2010. Being so original and unique, it has been copied by many, but please do not let the imitators fool you ~
The O R I G I N A L is, and always will be, The Sycamore Hill Collection.
Coffee and Love Inspired.

All of the vintage silverware offered by Sycamore Hill is in pristine condition. The quality and condition of my silver is unmatched. None of my pieces are what some label “shabby chic” or “charming”, nor will you EVER see any wear whatsoever or “signs of its former life”. Those are sweet words that mean damage. I only carry silver in excellent, table-ready condition. My silver inventory is as extensive as it is exceptional. If you are interested in custom pieces or different quantities, just let me know, together we will create the perfect pieces that match the personality and style of the intended recipient(s).
