We visited an estate (household) sale today. We picked up a few cool finds. I originally found it online and saw a Chiffarobe I wanted to check out, but it was gone. So it must have been a reasonable price. Usually great antique furniture like that is so over priced. I'd like a waterfall style. Kind of like this one:
What we got instead was...
A Juice King JK-30. Needs a repaint. We already have a vintage juicer, it's a bit smaller. WE like it a lot, but there's a crack in the side and we're afraid one day it will grow into one that makes it unusable. So we picked up a spare! I'd say it's a 1950's era. Fits right in.
A Becky Porter commercial french fry cutter. This is going to need a serious cleaning and repaint. But how cool is it?? I think this is a bit older, possibly more 30's or 40's era but I can't really say for sure.
Lastly, a 1970's era book on wood burning. Not really for learning how to, but still neat to look though. AND wowzers, it says an average homesteader might use 8-10 cords of wood per season. CORDS. Not FACE cords. CORDS. For those that don't know, a cord is 4' high x 4' deep x 8' long. A face cord isn't a legally recognized measurement, but it's about 4' high 8' long and 16" deep. 10 cords is a LOT of wood. I'd say in the range of 3x what we use.
Here's todays goodies:
I have to round up some of our vintage goods we procured while on our Anniversary vacation and get some photos. We've got a great stove top "EZ Corn Popper", a Corelle stove top as well as electric perculator, a Kliban cat, a neat thermometer and some cook books including Ma's Cookin Mountain Recipes which had a great biscuit recipe.
